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.

Solo ascent from Seathwaite.pwhitaker_196612/06/2015
The National Trust car park at Seatoller was virtually empty as I arrived just before 9am. I set off down the road to Seathwaite, a gentle break-in with Great End dominating the view ahead. The road became a path which passed through a farmyard and gradually climbed to Stockley Bridge. After the bridge, the walking became much steeper as the path zig-zagged up the face of Seathwaite Fell. There is no path to the summit, so I had to watch for a stream at which I turned left and climbed steeply for several hundred feet to Wainwrights summit, more shapely and with better views than the real summit a third of a mile on, which was a rocky knoll and my 100th English hill.peter4lc11/06/2015
