Seathwaite Fell Excursion PDF

This arduous excursion will cover a complete section through the sedimentary fill of the Scafell caldera in the type area specifically considering the range of rock types, depositional environments, and the abundant examples of soft-sedimentary deformation. The party will take the Styhead Tarn path and where this levels out after Taylorgill Force we will climb over rough fellside to Aaron Crags and then mainly traverse along the crest of Seathwaite Fell to Sprinkling Tarn. The return will be via Styhead Tarn along paths giving a total distance of six kilometres with a height gain of 500 metres. Information about a poor weather alternative will be posted on the website in due course.
