Circuit from Buttermere, taking in Red Pike, High Stile and Mellbreak. Route and write-up at:
Parked in Buttermere with Brian K and set off in rain and showers. Ticking off my highest incomplete Wainwright and the Birketts on route. Up the Sour Milk Gill path and onto Dodd, stopped raining now, clouds blowing through. Then onto Red Pike, both High Stile tops, High Crag, Seat and down to Scarth Gap, down to the Lake and back. Cracking walk with amazing views particularly down to Buttermere. Bleaker Ray Tarn and Chapel Crags reminded me of Cwm Idwal, my favourite place.Mark T25/11/2015
