Honister NT Car Park - Grey Knotts - Brandreth - Green Gable - Great Gable - Moses Trod - Honister
I managed to get to the car-park at about 10am before the crowds arrived. We were alone until the top of Grey Knotts but soon left the couple behind. Coffee on Brandreth followed by the ridge to Green Gable (Click here to see Sweep of Green Gable). Only a couple of people there! Bit of a scrambley bit up from Windy Gap and we were soon at Great Gable summit for more coffee. After a look at the view from the Westmorland Cairn we took the scree route down (which was interesting). Windy Gap was like Piccadilly Circus as we made our way back although the trodden path does not apparently follow the OS route.
