Waypoints (0)

A roundabout route to 'Pike 'O Blisco' or 'Pike of Blisco' if you prefer, by way of Side Pike, Lingmoor, Blea Tarn and Blake Rigg, returning from Red Tarn via Oxendale. Take note that the only way off the top section is to retrace your steps until an obvious track leads off left towards Blea Tarn. Lingmoor is named after the 'Ling' or heather hereabouts. The descent was down by the fence directly opposite the cairn towards Half-way House and Blea Tarn. The ascent to 'Blake Rigg' is on grass but generally 'pathless' with only the occasional trod to follow. There is a good sized cairn on this excellent viewing spot. Likewise there is only intermittent signs of paths across the sometimes craggy area to the summit of Pike of Blisco. This summit is craggy with plenty of clean rock on which to scramble between the two 'tops', the northern one, with its impressively sized cairn, obviously being the highest. The path descending into Oxendale was one of the first to be 'pitched' with stones in Cumbria. Thus with age it has blended into the landscape and is hard to pick out from any vantage point.
