Torver Beck begins at Goat's Water and meanders amongst boulders before it heads more purposefully down towards Coniston Water. This is the route rock climbers take heading for Dow Crag. Our job today was to scatter someone's ashes by the shores of the tarn then also take the remainder to the summit of Dow Crag. No-one slipped into the beck despite the wet rocks. Beyond are the craggy lower slopes of the Old Man.
