Heading north off Arant Haw
Heading north off Arant Haw, taken 5 years ago
The nameless ridge that drops off the north side of Arant Haw provides an easy route back into the valley for those (us!) unwilling to face more climbing up onto the central Howgills plateau. Fell Head is the most distant summit. It is easy to see why Wainwright wrote: 'They are sleek and smooth, from a distance, like velvet curtains in sunlight, like silken drapes at sunset' ('Walks on the Howgill Fells').
