Caroline Winter walked up on September 1st, 2020 [from/via/route] Ennerdale water Bleach car park, Anglers Crag, Crag Fell, Iron Crag, return to Crag fell, Ben Gill [with] Becky [weather] Very good views. Warm day 12 degrees on tops - Easier ascent is Ben Gill. Long walk along wall line to Iron crag. Had to retract to gate in wall to cross to west side. Found ourselves on forest track below Crag Fell on return but found metal pipe to descend Ben Gill. Plantation being felled due to disease (also, trees removed below Crag Fell), & advise not to take diagonal track, but no alternative offered. We needed to take route through derelict mill to get back to CP
