Dunnerdale Fells and Great Stickle from Stonestar

Sat 26 Nov 2005

Route: Stonestar - Dunnerdale Fells - Great Stickle - Stonestar

Distance: 2.75 miles

Ascent: 850ft

Time: 1 hour 20 minutes

With: Anne


Some blue sky.

The plan was to follow A. Wainwright's 'Dunnerdale Fells' walk in his book 'The Outyling Fells of Lakeland' [page 132]. However we failed to visit Wainwright's [[Itm:345|top]] being distracted by a very prominent cairn on a top to the south east, we only discovered this on looking at the book on returning home. The red dot next to 'Tarn Hill' on the map marks the top we should have visited. To extend the walk we visited Great Stickle on our return to the car.

I managed to visit Wainwright's top of Dunnerdale Fells in [[Jnl:337|July 2008]]
