yep, tricky to find the start but well worth doing, its exposed tho so not for vertigo sufferers!,yep thats the one dunmail
The descent from Thornthwaite Beacon to Nan Bield is excellent too, having three stone stepped sections that are a real challenge to clean,it extends the Nanbield descent by quite a bit too. enjoy
Excellent, I'm for a wee cheeky solo mission next midweek. Park at bottom of Dubbs, Up to top of Garburn pass, then up onto Yoke - ill bell - froswick - High st - Mardale ill bell - Nan bield - Green quarter - HP plantation - car.
Just need the weather now. I'll be doing it either tues or wed, if anyones up for it? (at a sociable pace!).
Unsure what to do the other day, never did Helvellyn and sticks pass, could be handy as it's on the way home.
I seem to be the only person to actually like the Gatescarth descent to Haweswater! I've done the loop both ways now and possibly like it more for the epic location than the techy riding. Maybe I just need to MTFU.
