Distance (10 miles), ascent (968m), terrain (some scrambling).

A 10 mile circular mountain walk around the head of Newlands Valley, near Keswick, taking in 5 Wainwrights.

From the main Newlands road, we'll walk along a quiet lane to Little Town in the shadow of our main objectives for the day - Dale Head, Hindscarth and Robinson.  At Little Town, we'll leave the road behind and ascend to the col between Maiden Moor and popular Catbells with great views over Derwent Water.  Then we'll head south over Maiden Moor and High Spy, Wainwrights in their own right, but today a warm up for the steep climb onto Dale Head.  At this point, the views open up over the Buttermere valley and the Scafell range, as we bowl along the ridge line to Robinson, detouring to Hindscarth along the way.  From Robinson, we begin our descent.  There is a rock step on Robinson, which requires a short amount of scrambling.

This is a lengthy mountain walk with considerable height gain (968m) and a small amount of scrambling, so please be confident of your fitness and ability before signing up.
