With Anastasia and Helen. We were staying at a place next to the BP garage on Lake Road. From here we headed north across the town to find Vicarage Road which leads to Rothay Park where it becomes a path which leads to a pretty stone bridge after which we turned right and followed a lane for a short distance before picking up a long driveway of the left. This zigzags steeply uphill past some houses before becoming a path that ;eads eventually to Loughrigg Tarn near Skelwith Bridge. But we were not going there. About halfway to the Tarn a path, actually or than one as there are many minor variant routes hereabouts, headsoff right and meanders delightfully round little knolls and past a little tarn before landing us on the very crowded summit.
The descent north to Loughrigg Terrace is much more unrelenting and steep. At one point I slipped and managed to sprain my knee which borthered me a little all the way down and then rather a lot more the next day. But we got down to the Terrace and turned right to walk along it going right at a fork to visit the cave and then on down to the car park at Pelter Bridge. Here we picked up the same lane we had left before taking us back to the bridge by Rothay Park and home where we played Monopoly.
