From Seavy Knott. Fantastic walking with the might of Gable, Kirk Fell and Pillar for company. A hidden gem of a route that the tourist route up Haystacks misses. Climbed to point 545 before realizing my mistake and going back. On to Green Crag.Wycombe Wanderer27/10/2019

Day 4 of backpacking trip through Lakes with 5 friends from CUHWC: Innominate Tarn - Brandreth - Great Gable - Sty Head - Corridor - Scafell Pike - Great End - Angle Tarn. Illustrated account: http://tinyurl.com/phapebu. Managed to find 2 unbagged peaks en route - 2 subDeweys SE of Haystacks. Good!Mark Jackson05/09/2013
Seems to be pushing it calling this a Haystacks top. Does not really seem to be connected to Haystacks. Spent 48 hours in a tent on this top in the early 1990's. It never stopped raining. Up from the fence to the west after leaving Haystacks.mick04/08/2013
After Haystacks. If GPS coverage is not at its best it is difficult to work out the correct peak.destaylor25/07/2013
