Good Friday circuit of Borrowdale Fells from Seathwaite, though had to park courteously over a half-mile before due to so many other visitors, even at 09:30! Styhead Path onto Seathwaite Fell (Wainwright) via Aaron Crags. Then on to Seathwaite Fell - Great Slack and South Top. From Sprinkling Tarn up on to Great End via Esk Hause, then on to Esk Pike. Next on to Allen Crags, then the long walk over High House Tarn Top, Red Beck Top and Looking Steads to reach Glaramara. Finally, descended via Thornythwaite Fell and walked back round via Seatoller. Magnificent hike and sunny throughout - Great End was the only one of the five Wainwrights I'd previously climbed.mavero1019/04/2019

Route: Seathwaite – Corridor Route – Scafell Pike – Broad Crag – Blunt Top – Esk Hause – Allen Crags – High House Tarn Top – Red Beck Top – Looking Steads – Glaramara - Thornythwaite Fell – Seathwaite. Approx. Stats: 7hrs, 18km, 1,095m ascent. Weather: wet, cold, claggy & windy (!), cleared up for final descent. Notes: got quite cold hands on final ascent of Scafell Pike, so had to borrow Pete’s gloves.millionmts19/08/2017

Weather forecast good and did not disappoint. Parked at Stonethwaite and went up onto Bessyboot and along the Glaramara range. Skirted round Allen Crags and along the Seathwaite Fell tops. 12 tops 7 1/2 hours. More ascent than I anticipated but hey ho no pain no gain.Mark T28/05/2017
