Kevin Foster walked up on August 27th, 2021 [from/via/route] The Old Dungeon Ghyll National Trust car park. [with] By myself. [weather] Sunny. Clear visibility. - A classic ridge walk. Ascent via Browney Gill. Descent via Oxendale Beck. In between was walking heaven! The Bad Step wasn't even as 'bad' as I remembered. Excellent views in all directions but the Scafells and Bowfell were particularly impressive. Oh and a stunning waterfall near the end.
