EasyFells

I trust I will not be challenged by Trade Descriptions when describing some of the fells in this category as easy!

Some definitely are straightforward 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.  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.
