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
