Melfyn Parry climbed Loughrigg Fell on November 19th, 2023 [from/via/route] Started from Ambleside, walking though Rothay Park, following the river Rothay until almost at A591, then turning left over cattle grid to climb through woodland path up above Rydal Water. Stayed on the high level path with a brief detour to visit the enormous caves to reach Loughrigg Terrace with great views over Grasmere. From the end of the terrace a steep stone step path climbs to the summit of Loughrigg Fell at 335m. From here we descended to the edge of Loughrigg Tarn & followed the path partially around the lake & past a caravan site, on reaching some properties the path bears sharp left & climbs alongside a wall under Ivy Cragg, eventually bearing right to ascend to the summit of Todd Crag. From here passing Lily Tarn we dropped down to reach the outbound path at the footbridge & retraced our route through the park back to Ambleside. [with] DS & MW [weather] Fine drizzle until lunchtime, very wet conditions throughout the day. Visibility was good as walk was all below 400m - Walk was about 14.5km
