Robinson and Hindscarth are two mountains in the Newlands Valley that help create a great wall blocking the way over to the Buttermere Valley. This route starts off near Little Town and follows a narrow country lane to Low High Snab before a short, sharp ascent to High Snab Bank. This is the main ridge running south-west over Blea Crags and up to the summit of Robinson. The views of Newlands Pass to the right and Scope Beck to the left are fantastic along this whole section.

The summit of Robinson sits at a height of 737m (2,418ft), so the views are spectacular in all directions. The route heads south from the summit and then turns east along Littledale Edge and up to the slightly lower 727m summit of Hindscarth. The descent follows a similar ridge to the one used on the ascent but offers views to Little Dale, Scope Beck and also the rest of the Newlands Valley.
