The general area is called Green Quarter Fell.
"...the long easy climb is without excitement and its accomplishment is gratifying only as evidence that there is life in the old dog yet."
I wouldn't agree entirely with W but it was certainly one of the less inspiring of these outings so far, especially with gale force wind and cold, and with the threat of rain ever present.
W. gives the option of a detour to Skeggles Water, only a few hundred yards each way, and I opted out of this. But I was a bit taken aback with W's dismissive comments...
"Skeggles Water, lying in a vast bowl of heather, is conveniently visited on this walk but is an uninviting place with attractions mainly for bird watchers and anglers".
... almost as if those two pass-times were the lowest of the low. I think he must have walked this one in a narky mood. He may have had a wake-up if he'd asked some bird watchers or anglers about their opinions of fell walkers.
