Looking back at Hindscarth from Robinson.


Isn’t this a glorious view of the Newlands Valley taken from the route up Catbells.  Left to right: Maiden Moor with the ridge leading down to Knott End and Yewthwaite Comb and Newlands Church; then the dark summit of Dale Head; following the ridge along to Hindscarth and down Hindscarth’s ridge to High Crags then down Scope End. The next fell to the right is Robinson sloping down to High Snab Bank.  Red Pike is the dark fell beyond, lost in cloud.  Finally on the right are the slopes of Knott Rigg.
