The usual view of the Howgill Fells.

Our standard weekend circuit around Jenny Brown’s Point. Except that, on this occasion, I was on my own for some reason. And, having started across the same field to the Green, with the usual views to the Howgill Fells, I turned right rather than left on Hollins Lane and then walked across Heald Brow rather than down through Fleagarth Wood.

      Might be interesting if the tide was very high! Quite a bit of vegetation to deal with by the looks of it. Locally, climbers seem to head to Trowbarrow, I’ve never seen anyone climbing at Jack Scout before.
