On top of Armboth Fell (479m)
On top of Armboth Fell (479m)
The highest point of this unremarkable fell is the crest of this ice-smoothed whaleback. It is obviously higher than the summit chosen by Wainwright a few hundred metres away to the south west and one has to wonder why he made such an obvious error. There are intriguing patterns on the surface of the rock which almost look man-made but are most likely the result of lava bombs falling into molten rock when it was first formed. The small cairn which once sat on the crest appears to have been cleared away. As I sat here I saw a 'Wainwright Bagger' reach the lower top then head back towards the High Tove area without 'collecting' this point - obviously a purist!
