Kevin Foster walked up on March 16th, 2018 [from/via/route] Melmerby Fell [with] Henry [weather] Wet and very windy. Hill fog. - By now the weather had turned very wet as well as windy as I descended off Melmerby Fell. Route finding was already difficult hampered by the conditions and, with my hood up and head down, I must have veered off the broad summit ridge too far to the right. Realising my mistake, at one of the largest sheepfolds I have ever seen, I checked my position on the OS Land Ranger map using my trusty OS locate app and corrected my direction of travel towards Little Knapside Hill. Back on the right route, a sharp descent to the col beyond Little Knapside Hill, followed by a brief climb took me to the wind shelter and trig point on the aptly named Fiends Fell. The freezing conditions meant I didn't hang around long. Continuing my rapid descent I saw the buildings of the Hartside Cafe looming out of the mist and turned left before the road to take the old original road down the fell side. I eventually reached the relative sanctuary of the A686 (Penrith to Alston road) which I immediately crossed to descend the farm access road to Hazel Rigg. A quiet muddy back lane, taken left just past Hazel Rigg, took me after several miles all the way back to Melmerby. In dry (less windy) conditions this walk would be amazing. I'd love to visit these tops again someday.
