This was one of those walks that turns out to be more dramatic than expected. Starting off in Braithwaite we set off on a walk into Newlands which hugged low to the road for some time but once we started to head upward, things got really impressive. Causey Pike is a peak I've not really understood in the past. I always saw it as a small addition to a range of other simple peaks. Turns out this walk was a cracker and with small scrambles to make it even more exciting. I drew this route up to include several Wainwright's and it's definitely a route I will do again.

With weeks and weeks of rain I was expecting a break at some point and my fingers were crossed it would be dry for our annual Christmas Lakes trip. As you will see from the photos, we lucked out to some extend but we didn't let it stop us. We could have easily stayed in a nice warm pub but we waterproofed up and didn't regret it. In fact, it was to wet that I didn't even want to take my camera with me. ll of the photos were taken with my phone.
