I had to do this one again because on previous visit in thick cloud and rain I had been convinced by others leaving it that it was Scafel Pike. A weary guy today was under the same illusion when he saw me leaving it. (The real thing was just out of his line of sight,) I have probably done it four times now.Aimless Rambler29/06/2018

The good news was that the clag lifted by the time I reached the summit. The bad news was that it lifted because of the high winds. Felt very exposed on the top with the wind and wobbly stones I was standing on. Great views but was happy to get back down.NorthernWayfarer09/07/2017
