Ullscarf and (finally) Armboth Fell

We aimed for the Steel Fell carpark - the road that side of Thirlmere was closed, but we could get to the car park fine from the south side.  

Difficulty: 6.4

17:01, 20.7km 6h39 902m, End (200)

Looking back down towards Thirlmere.

Looking for a place to cross.

Ullscarf.  We took a slight short cut rather than going to Greenup Edge, the direct route to the top.

Just north of Blea Tarn, looking west.

At High Tove, not a new Wainwright for us, but slightly drier than last time we were here.

Finally at Armboth Fell.  Our last trip here had stopped short, this time we got to the right spot.

Descending down to Thirlmere.

At the bottom.

Views to the north of Thirlmere.

The reason why the road was closed, glad we didn't get to here and have to turn around.

Sunset over the fells, reflected in the calm water.
