Walk: Bowderdale, Cautley Spout, Cautley Crag, Calders, The Calf, Hazelgill Knott, West Fell
Start Point: Wath Grid Reference: NY 684 050
Distance: 14 miles Ascent: 2,500 feet
Time: 6 hours
Weather: A mainly dry but overcast day.
Comments: Seven walkers followed the leader on a southerly bearing up Bowderdale passing Cautley Spout and Cautley Crag to  Calders. From Calders we turned north to cross Bram Rigg Top, The Calf, Hazelgill Knott and West Fell back to the start. Due to overnight rain much of the route was very wet and soggy underfoot but nevertheless still enjoyable.
