Skiddaw

A formidable fell and ‘home mountain’ of Blindcrake.  It’s the Derwent Fells you see from the front window in the morning, but just a 5 minute walk up the track opposite and you are met with delights of Skiddaw and Bassenthwaite Lake (the only true lake in the Lake District).  The views on this snow covered visit have been enchanting.  Any photo cannot capture  the feeling of standing on Clints Crag gazing out to one of the oldest fells, it really has been breath taking. 

We’ve never bothered to climb Skiddaw before as it is considered to be ‘a bit dull’ from the Keswick ascent…from this northern view though, I have been converted.  Too cold and icy on this visit….but next time I’ll be up there.
