Walk: Raise Beck, Thirlmere, Harrop Tarn, Ullscarf, Greenup Edge, High Raise, Sergeant Man, Calf Crag, Steel Fell, Steel End
Start Point: Layby near Dunmail Raise Grid Reference: NY 330 111
Distance: 13.5 miles Ascent: 3,400 feet
Time: 7 hours
Weather: After a couple of early showers the weather stayed dry for the rest of the day. Very cold breeze on the summits but quite pleasant otherwise

Five walkers joined me for this walk in the Central Fells. After an early downpour the conditions were near perfect and a good day was had by all, especially Robb who “bagged” two new Wainwrights

Crossing Raise Beck is a tricky business since the footbridge was washed away
