Good Friday circuit of Borrowdale Fells from Seathwaite, though had to park courteously over a half-mile before due to so many other visitors, even at 09:30! Styhead Path onto Seathwaite Fell (Wainwright) via Aaron Crags. Then on to Seathwaite Fell - Great Slack and South Top. From Sprinkling Tarn up on to Great End via Esk Hause, then on to Esk Pike. Next on to Allen Crags, then the long walk over High House Tarn Top, Red Beck Top and Looking Steads to reach Glaramara. Finally, descended via Thornythwaite Fell and walked back round via Seatoller. Magnificent hike and sunny throughout - Great End was the only one of the five Wainwrights I'd previously climbed.mavero1019/04/2019

Our last Wainwright on an absolutely glorious sunny day, now wind, very few clouds and visibilty for miles.Climbed from Seathwaite Farm (plenty of available roadside parking at 7:45am). Stockley Bridge then East bank of Styhead Gill to Sty Head. Onwards to Sprinkling Tarn, Esk Hause, Calf Cove then NE to Summit. The actual summit was quickly appropriated by a pair of walkers who parked their backsides to have lunch thereby putting off other arriving walkers to take photos at the top. How I hate summit sitters. When we approached they were non to keen to allow access. Why can@t they reach the top, take pictures and buzz off a few yards away to eat?Grasmoor28/09/2018

Came up from Old Dungeon Ghyll via Angle Tarn and Esk Hause. Was in the clag on approach to the summit having to follow the cairns that were only visible one at a time. Cloud began to lift just as I hit the summit giving me glimpses of the view but not the full view.NorthernWayfarer09/07/2017
Stormed up Scafell Pike, dodging the masses. The weather was closing in by the time we got to the top. No time for pics or to touch the summit cairn, off down the annoyingly rocky ridge towards Great End. By the time we reached the summit it was completely foggy, windy and cold. Al's shorts didn't look such a good bet now (K had done a striptease on the way and was now in long trousers). But joy of joys, there was a shelter at the top and no one there but us. We huddled together and cracked open the champers. Hurrah! 214 down...very happy. SF was with us. Got completely soaked on the way down via Sprinkling Tarn but that didn't matter. It was a Great End.AlanDStewart01/07/2017
