Everybody goes up Walla Crag. It's an easy family walk, ideal for a spare afternoon. I must have done this walk 20 times but this was the first time in these conditions - Snow, clear skies, warm day, perfect!
This is from December 2009
here is the route I took, parked at the NT Great Wood car park
Cat Bells and Maiden Moor over Derwent Water
from the initial climb
"my brakes don't work - watch out!"
The Newlands Horseshoe - another great walk
very busy on top of Walla Crag
Bassenthwaite Lake in the distance
Blencathra - another great walk
Skiddaw, yes, another great walk
Back in Great Wood, I'll have to check this out for some
run routes at some point
