Holme Fell is a real gem among the lesser heights of Lakeland. Although not very high (1,040 ft), it more than compensates with its ruggedness, as even smaller hills can prove challenging to climb. The lower tops were covered in a thick tangle of vegetation, but I persevered and made my way to the top with my trusty Summit Journal.
The path winding its way north of the summit was simply charming, starting from Yew Tree Farm and mostly among trees. It led me to Uskdale Gap on the ridge, and from there, it was an easy climb to the top. The highest point was a platform of naked rock, weathered into pockets of small pebbles. It was an awe-inspiring sight, and I took a moment to enjoy a lovely luncheon at the summit.
