The grind to the Catbells summit is even a match for the best of fell runners.

Overview

Don’t overcook on the run from The Round and out to the Catbells as the grind to the summit is even a match for the best of fell runners! Head down the steps to the lake shore at Manesty and by the end you’ll have circled the whole of Derwentwater.
