Low Water Beck scramble

Entertaining scramble on sound rock which provides much more interesting route to Old Man then the path from Coppermines valley.Exposed on places,but easier then Dow crag Easy terrace and continuation.Certainly this is not scramble for novices.Best done when dry,otherwise there would be difficulties in entry pitch.

Getting There

From Coppermines valley follow path to Pudding stone.the stream of low water beck is easy to recognize from here.
