Mungrisdale - No fell walker can remain uninspired nor resist the statuesque challenge of Blencathra’s craggy skeleton. Although the most impressive and spectacular landscape features produce their own inevitable magnetism, the suggested 9 mile BLACK route (with 2781ft of ascent) will give access to the summit via the unfrequented, but no less mouth-watering, fell-country to the north. For those who do not wish to grapple with this land, escape is at hand via Mungrisdale Col.
