During week at Martin's house in Keswick with LesleyChris Pearson14/08/2014
First top of a 10 hour sweltering day - as I couldn't be 100% certain I'd 'ticked' this on 1st Sept 1968 from my log book and I didn't remember the unusual summit so probably hadn't. Later contoured back to Round How (which I definitely hadn't done before) before finishing by scrambling up to Broad Crag & Scafell Pike, then Lord's Rake to Symonds Knott. Just Pillar Rock to finish the Nuttalls now.signyred26/07/2014
