Red Screes and Middle Dodd

from Red Screes trig column over to Froswick and Ill Bell

I was out nice and early this morning to bag a couple of Eastern Wainwrights.  The climb up to Red Screes is pretty straightforward from the car park.  There is a decent path all the way to the top.  From here you can see the lower Middle Dodd and it's a nice little stroll down to this summit.  I made my own way down the steep side of Middle Dodd rather than follow a path and then continued up the road over the top of the Kirkstone Pass back to my car.

just under 3 miles

I set off to do these fells a few weeks ago and parked in the car park and then didn't bother going up because of cloud.  I'm glad I waited, some beautiful views today.
