WALK NOTES
A reasonably good day with cloud and eventually rain at the end of the walk. An easy path from Gatesgarth to Scarth Gap Pass and to the summit of Haystacks. The path we were following from Haystacks to Fleetwith Pike was a little vague in places. Great views from Haystacks Summit and as the weather was closing in the views from Fleetwith Pike were reasonable. All in all it was a good days walk.
