95. Hard Knott LDW-151 1801 ft
Phil Judy and Treacle walked 1.3 miles and climbed 500 ft
What we wanted after the previous gruelling day in the Coniston Fells were two easy Wainwrights either side of a pub lunch at the New Dungeon Ghyll Hotel. For the morning we opted for Hard Knott LDW-151 (SOTA LD-034). The parking place below the fell at NY 232015 takes around three cars.
Our walk started from the Hard Knott Pass and there is little to report on. This was a straight forward up and back expedition. We left the car at 10.42 and returned to it seventy minutes later with five stations in the log: G1OHH, G6HXL, G1KLZ, 2E0XSD/M and G0GGT/M. The ascent/descent was gradual and easy, cossing the Beck in Hardknott Gill on the way.
We had decided to climb Lingmoor Fell overlooking Langdale in the afternoon.There is nothing more to say - visibility was poor on Hard Knott so no photographs were taken and we were driving to the NDG Hotel before midday, for our sausage sandwich!
