Loc: West Lancs.
I think your problem is just a lack of confidence. Walking with an experienced person that is used to these scenarios will make you feel safer and eventually you will wonder what yopu were worried about.

Whereabouts do you live? As Janice rightly states, the Howgills are a fantastic walking area with few sheer faces (if you avoid the climb alongside Cautley Spout).

Only 15 minutes from Kendal with good parking. If you travel north along the minor road from Sedbergh to Howgill village (to the west of the hills) there is a large area of grassland suitable for parking about 5 miles along it. Park here and pick your route! The Calf is the highest point. Great views with no sheer faces and very gentle ascents.

Hi Slowcoach. I live between The Peak District (which I go to mostly) and Snowdonia so the Lake District tends to be two or three times a year breaks. I have printed this off though as it sounds very suitable, thanks to all.

Should be able to make the southern Dalws relatively easily then.

Suggestions ...
Simons Seat via the Valley of Desolation. A lovely walk. The valley is called after a storm that rushed down the valley and tore up all the trees.

Buckden Pike from Park Rash. Pick the right day and this is Englands finest viewpoint. You can see from Blackpool to Anglesy, from Middlesbrough across the Moors. Weardale down to Penhill north and south. A very easy stree free amble.

Parson's Pulpit from Malham. The small cemetery was used in the opening scenes of Wuthering Heights.

Fountains Fell from Malham Tarn along the Pennine way returning via Darnbrook Fell. No problems with this one if you avoid Malham Cove and Gordale Scar.
