Glenridding Dodd, Sheffield Pike and Hart Side, 14th August 1994

Ullswater from Glenridding Dodd

It's been a real struggle to reach the summit of this modest fell, only 1425ft above sea level. This is the view northwestwards along the length of Ullwater,

Glenridding Village from Glenridding Dodd

The view southwards from the same point, to Glenridding and Patterdale.

Helvellyn from Sheffield Pike

The ridge northeastwards drops to a col and then rises again to the more impressive Sheffield Pike, 2232ft. This is the view towards Catstycam and Helvellyn.

Sheffield Pike summit

The summit cairn of Sheffield Pike, with Ullswater beyond. The highest tops of the Pennines (Cross Fell, Great Dun Fell and Little Dun Fell) are seen about 40 miles away.

The High Street fells from Hart Side

The route continues to Green Side, just half a mile short of Stybarrow Dodd, and then turns northwest for Hart Side. This is the view from the summit to the southwest, with the High Street ridge prominent.

The summit ridge of Hart Side

Hart Side (2481ft) is a beautiful grassy top with a long northeast ridge giving an excellent descent to Dockray on the Ullswater shore. This is the view southwest again, across Glencoyne and the hidden dip of Ullswater.
