Last of the day although I didn't know it at the time. I was going to carry onto Great End but the mist came down heavy, really really heavy by the time I got to Sparkling Tarn. So turned back. Wise move as the rain came lashing down soon after.Altheus25/05/2019

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

Done solo as a general exploration of every peak and knoll on the hill. Lots of tarns - which means bogs and flies made it interesting. This is peak is too easily passed and a good one for kids to learn on.Aimless Rambler12/07/2013
