A non-strenuous fell walk with great views of Langdale and Easedale through interesting fell landscape. A compass is handy and you will need one if the cloud comes down, as the paths are occasionally unclear. Definitely no scrambling involved! Allow for a stop at the New Dungeon Ghyll Hotel for refreshments.

I would need to agree with Gavin (previous comment) that this walk seems to be no longer than 8 miles rather than 11.5 stated taking me just over 4 hours. I would also suggest including 'Blea Rigg' in the walk title this being the highest point reached. Thank you.

This is a great walk with excellent views even when the weather is not so good. However I would not attempt it in poor visibility as the ridge is more like an undulating plateau with scores of mini-peaks and a plethora of paths. Unless you can see the main landmarks and the way ahead it would be easy to get disorientated! On the other hand on a good day you can spend hours exploring the ridge/plateau with many wonderful views in all directions. The directions are good though the waymarks on the ridge can be easily missed or not identified due to the vast number of peaks and paths. If parking is a problem you can vary the start point - I started from Harry Place and used the more gently ascending path directly to WM3 - or you could start from the NT Car Park at WM17 walking the valley first. A great afternoon - Thank you.

I took this walk on the 6th April 2013. I cannot comment on the navigation notes as I used the GPX data, but this worked very well. The paths are quite well used so not hard to follow. I would agree though that the paths become indistinct at point 11. It's not difficult to know where to go as you are just heading downhill towards Stickle Tarn but it can get a little boggy off path. The total length of the walk for me was 12.5km not 11.5 miles and took me just under 4 hours at an ambling pace. Add an hour for taking photos as the views are superb.
