16th Oct 04 - Angle Tarn and Hayeswater
The day started 'OK' but the weather got worse and worse. First mist then rain.
We probably shouldn't have attempted this high level walk. We started at Hartsop and climbed up (and up!) to Borsdale Hause with its views over Ullswater. Then the mists came down. You could hardly see your hand in front of your face. So it was a blind trudge along to Angle Tarn. Then along Satura Crag to the Knott before a steep descent to the dam at the end of Hayeswater. Then a long walk alongside Hayeswater Gill back to Hartsop.
About 7.5 miles and would have been truly wonderful on a sunny day.
