This is a fairly easy walk starting from Old Dungeon Ghyll and coming back to New Dungeon Ghyll. It was led by an HF volunteer - Pete McCloud.The walk is mostly on established tracks and returns via part of the Cumbria Way after visiting Elterwater, a place of teahouses and pubs all very tolerant of the muddy booted. On the SW side of Side Peak is this "squeeze". The route we took crossed boggy untracked land past this small lake called Lingmoor Tarn. One unexpected "disaster" .. for this HF organised route we were bussed to start and finish. Except that the bus taking us from the end didn't make it. And so we had to wait for an hour in the pub. Awful - a test of resolve. :-)
