Scandale Pass

In the Lakes.

A one-way trip from Hartsop to Rydal. One-way trips are always more interesting. I haven’t used the High Pike ridge of Dove Crag much. A couple of times descending in the Fairfield Horseshoe.

This view is from High Pike summit looking towards Scandale Pass, the col between Red Screes and Dove Crag. The air clarity was great today, and the low sun lighting accentuated the long straight dry stone walls of Scandale Bottom.

Were these drawn with a ruler on the map and then built, or built first then surveyed? Most Lakeland walls are higgledy-piggledy affairs bending to suit the contours or to avoid boggy terrain.
