With Stephen. Selside Pike, Branstree NE top, Branstree (via Artle Beacon), Tarn Crag, Grey Crag & Harrop Pike. Parked at Mardale Head.ADT23/06/2018
A nice walk from Sadgill. The field by the parking spot is not mapped as open access but the farmer told me it's fine to go through the gate and there's a stile top left corner of the field. A good, tidy path leads up beside a grassy stream way, then heads right to another stile. An ATV track heads up over Great Howe, then it's easiest to go off piste to cut across the stream diagonally upwards below Grey Crag to the summit (unless you want to bag these Wainwright things as well). It's nice (and very easy) heading north down the fence to the head of Mosedale, then west and back down the River Sprint, great views all the way.Gill20/06/2018
