Mellbreak 2006

Name of walk Mellbreak 2006
Date of walk 2006-04-29

Decided to climb Mellbreak this morning (1675ft). As it is the Bank Holiday weekend we thought we would stick to the quiet west side. Going via Cleator. We parked just past the Kirkstile Inn at Loweswater. This is where this picture is taken from……looks steep! I did it last year but never had my camera with me and missed some great views, but not this time!

Found an easy way down to the Mosedale Valley path between the two summits. Last time we had to walk through waist high bracken in sheep tick season!

Had a drink in the pub at the end of the walk then went to look around St Bartholomew`s Church and stopped off on the side of the lake. Back home in time for tea.
