Kevin Foster walked up on April 13th, 2021 [from/via/route] Hallsfell Top [with] By myself [weather] Sunny to start but clouding over later. Clear visibility on tops. Cold when you stopped moving. - Another easy saunter from Hallsfell Top (this time in a sort of north easterly direction). A memorial cross marked out with white stones is a point of interest en route just after the tarn-let. It's worth making the detour right to the top of Sharp Edge for the dramatic aerial views even if not making a descent that way. I chickened out of the descent this way (I have done Sharp Edge in ascent many years ago I hasten to add) and headed off for the col dividing Blackhazel Beck from the Glenderamackin River. At the col I took the right sided path down the valley (as I had used the left sided path on the approach to Bannerdale Crags last November). As I reached the outflow from Scales Tarn I was sorely tempted to climb back up the stony path and have another go at Sharp Edge but time pressures prevailed so I carried on the track to Mousthwaite Comb vowing I'd return someday. This walk completed my Northern Fells section of the Nuttalls list.Only the Western and Southern Fells to go. However these two sections are the largest by some margin with 29 and 45 separate tops respectively!
