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 for example involves a bit of a scramble whilst Glaramara is a steep pull by any standards. However Easy Fells are clearly defined as single mountains in which it is clear you have reached the summit. From the summit enjoy the views but then test your knees on the often steep descents! I have varied the descent to offer a circular walk for which even Wainwright (the true master of individual Lakeland fells) would have been proud of.
