Kidsty Pike

The first part of the walk - to the summit of High Street - was by the same “royal” route as described in my last walk, though in much more straightforward conditions, especially in terms of visibility. On reaching High Street brow, the route went north to the Straits of Riggindale, then turned east to Kidsty Pike summit, and then back down via Kidsty Howes to the car park at the head of Haweswater (from where hounds were being hailed by their owners as they raced along the last part of track on the other side of the reservoir). Great views in the middle distance in all directions. (Distance: 7.16 miles, ascent: 2545 ft.)
