TC, EC, Pete & Alfie Day trip to Sadgill from Lincoln. Last peak of the day but we went wrong from the top of Tarn Crag, losing too much height, so had to regain the height and find the path. End of a long day. Sore knees at the end!TopCat195903/08/2019

From Mardale Head, Haweswater: Selside Pike, Branstree, Tarn Crag, Grey Crag, Harrop Pike. Beautiful hot May Bank holiday weekend. Went to the Punch Bowl in Askham village for a meal afterwards.Lazylizzie06/05/2018
The start of our 6 day bank holiday weekend. Dropped Myla off and headed off on the adventure. First issue was the road into the valley through Burnside was closed so had to head up to Shap and turn off down into the valley of Longsleddale. Once at Sadgill bridge we parked up I realised I forgot my fleece and had no coat…amateur. We headed through the gate straight up easy gully stopping for breakfast on a cliff edge using our new Jetboil again. From the followed the route up to the summit. Seemed to go on and on forever but great views of the valley, survey posts and kentmere pike and the Yorkshire dales of course. Great start to the week.Scotty 2 Hotty02/05/2018
