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

From Mountain View along the ridge from Rosthwaite fell to Allen Crags.Mild in the valley blowing a hooly on the ridge and the clag was down making spotting the birketts amonst all the outcrops a bit tricky.jocks127/09/2017

Approx. Stats: 7hrs, 18km, 1,095m ascent. Weather: wet, cold, claggy & windy (!), cleared up for final descent.

During week at Martin's house in Keswick with LesleyChris Pearson14/08/2014
First top of a 10 hour sweltering day - as I couldn't be 100% certain I'd 'ticked' this on 1st Sept 1968 from my log book and I didn't remember the unusual summit so probably hadn't. Later contoured back to Round How (which I definitely hadn't done before) before finishing by scrambling up to Broad Crag & Scafell Pike, then Lord's Rake to Symonds Knott. Just Pillar Rock to finish the Nuttalls now.signyred26/07/2014
