From Mungrisedale. Route via slanting path under the Tongue. In early part before confluence with Bullfell Beck the path has completely collapsed and a very wet and unpleasant detour is necessary. Now whilst I think that local communities need all the inputs they can get, it seems odd that the footbridge from the village hall to the pub has been replaced before the valley path has been restored. The fact is that the road to the pub is intact and provides a way both vehicular and pedestrian with no inconvenience whatsoever. Who is responsible for this s kind of crooked thinking? The summit was reached in cold damp conditions and a way down the delightful Bullfell Beck. With a Mag.iredale08/11/2017
