From Wasdale up Moses' Trod Path to Sty Head. Over the Corridor Route (thanks Dave for the help on the tricky downhill bad step). Up Round How, quite a steep grassy bank. Onto Middleboot Knotts then over Piers Gill and up Lingmell. Back to Wasdale via SW shoulder which is really steep in places. Windy but sunny all day.Glenelg12/05/2016
Walked on my own from Wasdale Head. Did Scafell Pike first so this was my last fell of the day before joining the path back down to Wasdale Head. Warm but eerie at times with mist and cloud coming and going all day. This fell is well worth doing for the dramatic views down into Piers Gill from the path to the summitflockwatcher03/10/2015

Must have passed this Nuttall a few times and it was only 5 minutes off the Corridor/Lingmell path. Still shocked at how easy it was to bag once you know where it is!Jhimmy12/08/2012
11 miles in rain with Graemerossdrummond16/06/2012
An easy one to miss that's for sure. I had the coords plugged into the GPS just to make sure I had the right one. Seldom visited I guess except by true baggers.Father Ted26/05/2012
