The route was from Hartsop, up the slope of Brock Crags to Satura Crag, then along to AngleTarn, and thence via the contouring route to Boredale Hause and finally down from there by the slanting path across the flanks of Rake Crag. I had not gone by the first part of this route before, and in addition to its gentle gradients, it offers very fine views across to Dovedale and Deepdale, and then later on, of Gray Crag (especially fine) and up to Raven Crag and Threshthwaite Cove above Pasture Bottom. On this occasion, to cap it all, a herd of red deer were also to be seen on the higher reaches of Satura Crag. From Satura Crag onwards, there were the usual fine views of Angle Tarn and the fells to the north-west, as a well as, later on, back towards Brothers’ Water and its lofty ‘guardians’. Distance: 5.61 miles/9.2 km; height: 1735 ft./529m.
