Howling Howgills

Cautley Spout

I'm just back from a couple of days out in the Howgills with students from the University of Cumbria. Cloudy conditions gave us plenty of oppurtunity to develop their navigation skills while a wet camp in Langdale tested their campcraft. Just the one boot was left outside to fill up with water! Our route took us past Cautley Spout, over the Calf and down into Langdale. Friday started with a stiff pull up Hazelgill and over towards Green Bell in some very windy conditions.

Perfect conditions for navigation practice
