Walk: Moasdale , Lincove Beck, Esk Pike, Ore Gap, Bow Fell, Three Tarns, Crinkle Crags, Little Stand, Ulpha Fell
Start Point: Parking area at the end of Moasdale Grid Reference: NY 241 017
Distance: 10.5 miles Ascent: 3,900 feet
Time: 7.25 hours
Weather: A dry day with an occasional burst of sunshine. Quite chilly on the summits

Five regulars and a guest from Bath joined the leader on this walk in the Southern Fells. Our route took us up Moasdale to Lincove Beck which was easily crossed due to the recent dry spell and then onward to Esk Pike. Leaving Esk Pike we continued on to Bow Fell the highest point of the day. After a stop for lunch we carried on to Crinkle Crags and then began a somewhat “tricky” descent via Little Stand and Ulpha Fell.
