||Twisleton Scar End,
||Car park, Ingleton
||SD 694 730
||Dry and cold
||Five ramblers out for today's walk in
the fells above Ingleton Village. The route started off eastwards
onto Fell Lane and after a short, moderate ascent we headed North
West passing by the Quarry at Skirwith and on across the River Doe
by way of the stepping stones at Beezleys. From the river we headed
off following the path leading up Twisleton Scar End where we had a
short stop for morning tea. While the weather was fine,
Ingleborough, our target for today, had its usual cloudy mantle and
prospect of a climb without reward. We continued crossing Scales
Moor and on down into the valley at Chapel Le Dale from where we
started the long ascent to Ingleborough. As we approached, the skies
cleared and we made the ascent with rewarding views and had lunch in
the sun at the top. The descent down Limestone Load was uneventful
with exception of two mountain bikers who, having ridden down the
mountain once, were merrily pushing their bikes back to the top!!!!
They passed us as we reached the lower slopes and were heading back
to Ingleton. A good day out.
