Walk: Hartsop, Angletarn Crags, Brock Crags & Rest Dodd
Start Point: Hartsop Grid Reference: NY 409 103
Distance: 7 miles Ascent: 2,500 feet
Time: 5.5 hours    
Weather: Dull, misty and much rain.
Comments: Our group of 12 set off north from Hartsop heading for Boredale Hause. Then on to Angletarn Crags, before dropping down towards Angle Tarn where we were surprised to see that there were several people swimming. Brrrrr…. Bypassing the tarn it was on to Brock Crags, before going to Rest Dodd, where we had a lunch stop in the rain, mainly standing. It was then down to Hayeswater, and back to Hartsop.
