Up the ridge from Gatesgarth. Along to Honister Crag. The little bothy there is now totally wrecked with no roof. I remember when it was useable and just needed a simple roof repair. Back to Warnscale Bottom visiting the other two bothies on the way. With Alfie. W 22 Rnd 6Dangerous Dave23/06/2020

7th and last summit of the day following Stuart Marshall's Buttermere Marathon. Took a long break between Haystacks and Dubb's Hut before tackling this one. Was feeling the heat from a relentless sun and despite refilling my water was feeling dehydrated. The descent took 1.5 hours because of fatigue and dehydration but no other problems (the path looks scarier than it actually is). Long walk back to Buttermere through clouds of midges along the road because lakeside footpath was closed.NorthernWayfarer22/06/2019
