Direct ascent to Grey Knotts & Brandreth from Honister Pass on our last morning in the Lakes - the main car park is free for NT members; for non-NT members you're better to park at the slate mine, where parking is far cheaper. The way up was a steep slog & horrendously slippery in the wet; take care! The low murk momentarily lifted just enough at the summit for us to see Buttermere below.wheresthepath25/09/2017

From Honister into thick fog. Climbed 5 of the tors at the top before finding the two with cairns marking East and West summits. No idea how they compare because couldn't see between the two main summits with the fog.NorthernWayfarer25/07/2017
Climbed with Andy on Bob Graham Round Leg 4 via Yewbarrow, Red Pike, Steeple, Scoat Fell, Black Crag, Pillar, Looking Stead and Brandreth. Continued on to Honister.dhbond24/07/2017
From Honister with Lou. Straight up from the YHA carpark up to Grey Knotts and onto Brandreth where we explored the various summits and excellent views. Continued up to Green Gable for lunch where we observed Great Gable and decided to go for it. Glad we did as the views we stunning. The Typhoon flypast at from Windy Gap was superb timing by the RAF. We returned via Windy Gap and Green Gable, then headed towards Brandreth but dropped down to pick up the Moses Trod path contouring around to the Tramway. A hot, still sunny day. Perfect!Butty12/07/2017
