Wasdale revisited

Trip date – November 2021

Low level day out from Wasdale Head to Seathwaite.

A quick dash to the lake-district, this time with a bit off comfort as i took the Campervan.

The aim was to rekindle some memories of prior trips, to grab a beer in the legendary pub, Wasdale Head Inn – https://www.wasdale.com/ and also it was good to drag two mates out who started the trip eager to spend a night in there tents..

The legendary Inn and my camp, the car park

The route was to follow the track that runs along the lower part off the Great Gable and through the valley and to follow this to Sty Head tarn were I followed the path on the Green Gable side which runs down hill to Taylor Gill force waterfall. There is a track that undulates past the water fall that picks its way through the mountain cut path of the lower reaches of Base Brown towards Seathwaite. The weather was wet, the ground saturated and the rocks slippery so when i came to a small scramble on the path along Base brown i decided to return as it looked a bit risky to attempt with Dexter. The red square depicts the area of the slippery scramble. With out a dog it would be a doddle..

The route out, following the well defined track that follows the valley shadowed by the Great and Green gables. The stretcher at the Great Gable.
Great to see some wild campers out on Styhead tarn
GreenHowl Knott woods – just before the falls

On the track that cuts into Bsse brown, the water fall is to the left..
