From Keswick take the A591 out of town towards Bassenthwite Village and after crossing the Crossthwaite Roundabout turn immediately right onto the minor road towards Applethwaite. After a mile turn sharp right towards the Underscar Country Club Hotel and continue to the end and park. Now put your hiking boots on!
The map I use for this area is Ordnance Survey, Outdoor Leisure 4, The English Lakes, North Western Area, 1:25,000 scale. The table below shows a set of waypoints for this route together with start and finish points which can be programmed into a GPS. Note that these are OS grid references and NOT Lat. & Long. Positions and that the Bearing and Distance information is an “as the crow flies” bearing and distance to the next peak or waypoint.
|Position||Elevation (ft) ||GridRef.||GridRef ||Bearingº||Distance|
|Car Park||967||NY28085||25335|| || |
There really is very little to say about this route it is very “straight-line-ish” and easy. The map and waypoints will help you in cloud or bad weather but this is a very visible route in that you can see it most of the way to the summit

Good hiking boots/shoes, waterproof and windproof clothing.
