- You lot were so good last time……….What's whinlatter like?
Easy peasy! It’s a bit rooty and technical in places on the north loop but certainly not something you’ll find challenging in comparison to what you’ve done. It is quite good fun though, and well worth a visit if you’re over that way.
If you’ve a day to fill consider the blue loop as well, or maybe the blease fell/lonscale fell classic.Posted 5 years agogingerssMember
Is this with both loops yes?
Yes, both loops are quite short. In total notably shorter than Gisburn or Penmachno. Maybe similar length to llandegla.
Edit: actually I’m taking rubbish. Whinlatter red as a whole is in fact marginally longer than Gisburn, but for me it feels quicker and easier, so I maintain that you should be fine.Posted 5 years agomuddydwarfSubscriber
Both North and South loops do involve a fair bit of climbing though, so factor that in if you’re not a fan of climbing 🙂Posted 5 years ago
Actually, the viw from the big rock at the top of the South Loop is fantastic on a good day with Keswick in the distance surrounded by the mountains.christhetallSubscriber
Did it in early March and really enjoyed it – much better than Marin, bit harder than Penmachno – some tight turns (I’m a big bloke on a 29er) and a bit of exposure at times on the north loop.
I was quite impressed by the lack of fire-road – very little apart from a mile or so of slog on the north loop.
Did seem quite short though – I was there for the afternoon and still did the north loop twice, the blue run and I thought I done the south loop twice, but it appears I missed a section – so take care when you reach the top of the zig-zag climb.
