Walk: Crinkle Crags and Pike o' Blisco
Start Point: New Dungeon Ghyll Hotel Grid Reference: NY 294 064
Distance: 8 - 9 miles Ascent: 2,800 + feet
Time: 6.5 hours    
Weather: Cool with mist on Crinkle Crags and one light shower. Overcast at first but clearing later.
 
Comments: With the group of 8 made up from the 2`s & 4`s, we made our way up Hell Gill, buypassing the stepping stones due to a heavy flow of water. Although in mist, Crinkle Crags was walked with no incidents until the bad step when another route was found. With spirits high and the weather improving we reached Red tarn where some descended for Oxendale and the remainder pressing on for Pike of Blisko. A good day was had by all with some having just made their first ascent of Crinkle Crags.
