Angletarn Pikes

The prolonged cold spell, plus a recent further powdering of snow, made for very cold and icy conditions on this walk, with ice axe and crampons being required to ease the descent in particular. Not as sunny as forecast, but a kind of grim magnificence to so many familiar sights so often viewed before in rather more benign weather. Ascent was from Hartsop village via Boredale Hause, past Angle Tarn, and then, from near Satura Crags, down via the old mine ‘sled’ that slopes gradually back to the village. Good views initially towards Brothers Water and into Dovedale and Deepdale and the fells surmounting them, as well as, more distantly, the Helvellyn mass, and, later on, the High Street massif, Gray Crag and Pasture Bottom. A simple, easy, relatively short and, whatever the weather, always delightful walk!
