Ascent gained from the North. Dropped at the cattle grate by taxi due to Derwentwater being flooded above the docking stations therefore preventing access by boat. Climbed via Skellgill Bank. Once the summit was reached continued into the saddle before the rise to Maiden Moor and followed the steps down towards Derwentwater. Weather was warm and sunny approx 21 Degrees C.Symon1p24/08/2019
A scramble to get here and it was blowing a gale at the top. Managed to miss most of the rain on the way down.BizBoff18/08/2019
