Cat Bells is truly a hill for all seasons, here you see it at its best on a bright crisp winter morning in February. Pete has put Cat Bells on the programme for the Keswick Mountain Festival this year on the Saturday... 16/5.
Rising to1481ft /451m Cat Bells repays with interest the modest effort of the climb, the views are truly spectacular in all directions. Access on the day to the hill will be by launch across Derwent Water to Hause End. Ascent will be the "quiet way" along the track from Skelgill and up through the old workings to Hause Gate where astonishing views open out over the lake far below; it's an easy amble from there to the summit, join Pete for a great day out at the KMF.
