Eskdale: Mountain walking, scrambling and climbing in the Lake District

March 7 - March 11

A long weekend away in early March 2024 (dates are provisional but basically the weekend of 9/10th March 2024) in shared accommodation.

Eskdale is one of the great Lake District dales, and the Club has not been there for a good few years. There is something for everyone – high level rugged mountain walks, lower rolling fells and low level scenic walks, scrambling, climbing and/or wild swimming for the hardy, seven pubs, ticks on multiple lists such as the ‘Wainwrights’, England’s highest mountain, etc. As described by the eskdale.info website:

The river Esk starts it’s journey to the sea from high in the fells at Esk Hause, passing through Great Moss at the base of Scafell Pike then tumbling down through a narrow gorge and a series of waterfalls. The stream swelled by many becks becomes a river and encounters it’s first road at the foot of Hardknott Pass England’s steepest road. From here the river takes on a more gentle character with small rapids as it passes through some of the most beautiful oak woodland in Cumbria. The Esk is responsible for carving this remarkable landscape which is both picturesque and dramatic with majestic high peaks, stunning waterfalls and rolling green hills.

Note though, that the Ravenglass &Eskdale Railway won’t be running at that time of year.

For our newer members, if you’ve not been on a Club weekend before, these are great opportunities not only to mountain climb in some of the UK’s best mountain areas but also to socialise, have fun, and gain confidence/experience with help from other members. If you’re not sure, please do ask.
