“Excellent walk”
Reviewed June 2, 2013

Take the Launch from Keswick and start your walk from Hawes, then climb Catbells. Climbing over the tops to High Spy then down Newlands Valley into Keswick. Enjoying your packed lunch along the way.

“The first mountain (just) for our 2.5yr & 4.5yr olds”
Reviewed May 31, 2013

Decided to try and get the kids up this as their first mountain, well worth the effort. The loved it and managed the whole thing without crying.

We ascended from Hawesend and the climb starts gentle and gradually gets steeper, before levelling off and getting steeper again. Only a few bits they couldn't manage on their own.

Go for it!

“Nice views and walk!”
Reviewed May 29, 2013

We did a 10 miles walk over the cat-bells, although a shorted 4 miles one was available if one can't be bothered. It is relatively steep to get to the top, but it actually does not take very long. Would suggest you go only if the weather is nice, otherwise would not enjoy the view and with the hill-top location might get quite windy I suspect.
The best bit for me was the 90 minutes snooze at the summit after the ascent and a sandwich. Got sun-burnt but was amazing! Never slept that well in a while!

“Not a walk for a tranquil moment”
Reviewed May 29, 2013

If you want a lakeland fell this is a perfect little fell, but to avoid if you dont want to be surrounded by 100's of other wanting the same.
