1st of 11 tops from Seathwaite on a warm dry day with Paul and Tony giving Scafell pike a miss on a busy day for walkers taking in Broad and Ill crags and many otherscolinfielding20/07/2013
Done solo as a general exploration of every peak and knoll on the hill. Lots of tarns - which means bogs and flies made it interesting. This is peak is too easily passed and a good one for kids to learn on.Aimless Rambler12/07/2013
