With Jo, walk from Brotherilkeld: along paths to top of Cam Spout waterfall, then across rough ground to Cam Spout Crag (top: dome shaped with cross wall, rock is highest point, (from above looks like a hot cross bun), (surprisingly, after seeing nobody all morning somebody was sitting on summit when we arrived)). Descended via scree slope (easier than it looks) onto High Scarth and Rowantree Crags then as outward journey. Weather, cloudy with sunny intervals at first, sunny later, warm throughout, good visibility.amblerbob30/06/2014
