  Path To Rosthswaite
by steventilly

This is on the path from Watendlath tarn to Rosthwaite. The path climbs quite steeply up from the tarn before cresting the hill and heading back down into Rosthwaite. That's quite a descent and there are quite a few stone steps. It's not awfully easy on the knees if you have knees like mine (cute but weak). At Rosthswaite there's a pub/hotel and a shop. You can get the bus back to Keswick from there, or cross the road, pick up the River Derwent and follow it back to Grange.
