Walla Crag and Ashness Bridge

On Sunday 12th September, with the Keswick Mountain Festival still in full swing, the fells close to the town were buzzing with walkers. I inadvertently mingled amongst some of that throng from Rakefoot onto Walla Crag, and continued to Ashness Bridge via Falcon Crag. To judge by the thin trod to the cairn at the very top of Falcon Crag, this vantage-point is infrequently visited. It is without doubt the most perfect place to survey the grand surround of Derwent Water.
