Kevin Foster walked up Water Crag (Arkengarthdale) on August 27th, 2017 [from/via/route] Rogan's Seat [with] By myself [weather] Perfect conditions; sunny with a cool breeze - The route to Water Crag appeared daunting when viewed from Rogan's Seat, but on the ground was quite easy to follow and relatively dry underfoot. Leaving the fence line I had been following at a corner as it turned left I struck NE towards a wall to find my second abandoned vehicle of the day, an eight wheeled all terrain vehicle looking in very good nick. It had robably been left up here by a game keeper, and quite recently by the condition of it, this walk being largely on grouse shooting estate. I half expected the game keeper to appear from behind the wall and tell me I was trespassing on Lord Peel's land but it was Sunday and there was no one about. With the summit of Water Crag reached, I walked over to the OS trig point and the large well constructed wind shelter to admire the views northwards. I tried to locate the position of the Tan Hill Inn across the vast desolate moorland but without luck. Many miles away I could make out the speeding cars and lorries on the A66 a road I've driven on many times. Now I know that the big fell on my left as I drive over Bowes Moor towards Stainmore Gap is in fact Water Crag. Having 'bagged' Water Crag I knew I had completed the Northern section of the Yorkshire Dales 2000ers but I was still a long way from my car. So, initially ignoring the route description to 'descend southwards over rough and pathless moor', I followed the boundary stones on a reasonable track SE towards Great Punchard Head. After a while though I realised that this would take me too far East and by the time I picked up any tracks South I would reappear about half way down Gunnerside Gill and miss the ruined Blakethwaite Dams which was something I particularly wanted to see. Therefore, I left the track I was on and 'struck South over rough and pathless moor', which was luckily very dry to eventually pick up the head of Blakethwaite Gill and a decent trod leading down. Route finding difficulties over the rest of the walk along the entire length of Gunnerside Gill and the descent into Swaledale at Ivelet was an absolute delight in warm sunshine with many stops along the way to take photos. From Ivelet bridge it was a short stroll through the meadows beside the Swale back To Muker. What a day!
