In reply to M1EYP:
The ascent from the end of Haweswater to the summit of High Street is one of my nearest favourites and it has no exposure at all. The ridge is broad and mostly grassy with occasional rocky outcrops to add some minor scrambling interest towards the top.
From Thornthwaite Crag the descent and ascent up to Stony Cove Pike is quite steep, rocky and a bit scrambly but very satisfying. It’s then an easy stroll down to the Kirkstone Inn for some pints of Jennings’ finest ale.
There’s lots of routes up Red Screes from the Kirkstone Pass. The “official” path, which probably is finished by now, skirts around to the south of the main face and is steep but easy. I tend to prefer to cross the scree onto the east face to some really excellent grade 1 scrambles for the summit.
From Red Screes to Fairfield is a respectable hike across very remote feeling and sometimes challenging terrain. Lots of ups and downs! Fairfield via Cofa Pike to St Sunday Crag is OK. The main path bypasses most of Cofa Pike but if you fancy the scramble, now’s your chance. St Sunday Crag is delightful.
As previously mentioned, the White Lion in Patterdale is the place to eat and quaff ale. If you don’t fancy the steamer (which is very pleasant by the way) there is a lovely path round the east of Ullswater which, with a bit of careful map reading at the end will put you on the road pass to the SE of Hallin Fell, from which it is a five minute ascent to the summit. The views from Hallin Fell are stunning for such a low summit. You’ll work all the lads in Penrith, line of sight. It’s a darned long way from there across Martindale Common, Kidsty Pike et al back to your car!
If you wanted to do Place Fell instead then that’s fine and it’s pleasant walking. I suggest returning to Boredale Hause then Angle Tarn Pikes > Satura Crag > The Knott and back down by whatever way you fancy.
If you still have too much energy then continue on over High Street to Mardale Ill Bell then down to Nan Beild Hause and back to your car via Small Water - a delightful walk.
