Distance: 7.50 miles

Ascent: 2,450ft

Time: 3 hours 20 minutes

With: Anne


Blue sky and sunshine to start, snow on ground from 1,700ft. In cloud by the top of Wetherlam. Hail shower on the way down to Levers Water. The plan had been to carry on to Swirl How but the icy descent to Swirl Hawse and the deteriorating weather put us off.

Previous Walk: Harter Fell from Birks, Duddon Valley (Thu 30 Dec 1993)

Next Walk: Lingmoor Fell (Sun 2 Jan 1994)
