Final peak of the day. Started Seathwaite, Base Brown, Great Gable, Kirk Fell and finally Pillar. Superb day. Descended path before Black Crag slid down the scree, over to Wasdale then up to Sty Tarn and back. 14 miles, not a cloud. Superb walking. Company: Soloiandesbottes15/02/2019
JNR recce. Last top after stunning day in Lakes, descended to Windy Gap then a desperate vertical descent down chute to back of Wasdale in semidarkness, probably better to have gone back to Black Sail passrichardrosser10/10/2018
From Wasdale Head up Black Sail Pass to Pillar, onwards down Wind Gap up to Black Crag,Scoat Fell, Steeple and Red Pike. Descent to Dore Head then SW down on West side of Over Beck to Overbeck Bridge (Didn't fancy going down Dorehead screes to Mosedale) then long road trudge back to Wasdale Head.Grasmoor23/09/2018
