Birkett 3 Revisit with PeteDave Geere15/03/2020
From Pianet Knott in fading light and descended as fast as possible. Just made it to the bridge while I could see and hit the path. Back to car just after 17:00. 7.5 hours. A challenging walk, especially the descent of Cam Spout Crag in mist but one that cements my opinion that the Scafell Massif is not just England's highest but also the finest.Wycombe Wanderer03/12/2019
12.5 mile round of hills parking wide grass verge at NY 2103 0113: Heron Crag -> Silverybield -> High Scarth -> Cam Spout Crag -> Pen -> High Gait Crags -> Scar Lathing -> Pianet Knott -> Throstlehow Crags. High Scarth to Cam Spout Crag and on to Pen a bit tricky in places, otherwise all ok. Section 34B All Hills completion on Throstlehow Crags.jonglew19/11/2019
