8 miles, tough going depending on weather / conditions, 950m ascent

This will require a short drive from the YHA to Threlkeld.

Blencathra is one of the Lake District’s most famous and dramatic mountains standing at 845 metres tall. Wainwright described Blencathra as ‘one of the grandest objects in Lakeland’.  We'll be taking the 'easy' way up via Blease Fell and depending on the weather either returning the same way or down towards Scales Fell.

Saturday Walk -

I'll be staying in the YHA Keswick on the Friday & Saturday night so feel free to join or go luxury in a hotel in the Village, we'll meet in the bar area at 7pm each evening with more info nearer the time.  I would also imagine we'll have other routes going both days from this hostel.  Use the code Jan-019 to get 25% off!

Please only attend this walk if you have done other similar mountain walks in varying weather and conditions.  Please ensure you have the correct kit with you, if your unsure please drop myself a message.
