Easy Fells

I trust I will not be challenged by Trade Descriptions when describing some of the fells in this category as easy! Some definitely are but others are definitely not - Yewbarrow involves a little bit of a scramble whilst Glaramara is a steep pull by any standards. However Easy Fells are single mountains in which you know when you have reached the summit all you need to do is enjoy the views (hopefully!) and then test the knees on the way down. I have varied the descent on every fell as this is important but aside from that these are all just individual great walks of which even Wainwright would have been proud of.
