From Gillerthwaite to Rosthwaite

From Gillthwaite you set out along the Ennerdale Recess to Black Sail Youth Hostel which lies at the feet of the most beautiful mountains of the Lake District. These provide challenging summits for mountaineers. The path, though, does not lead onto the peaks but leads you along its feet through the crumbly confines of Loft Beck before swinging up to Honister Pass - not an alpine stage, of course, but demanding and not one to linger on for long in bad weather. There is also a longer and higher traversing variant described which strong walkers might want to take. In Borrowdale you have reached the very heart of the Lakeland.
