Walked from High Nibthwaite using Wainwright's Outlying Fells on my own. Dull but clear. Didn't need to struggle up Wainwright's route as there is a clear path up the back of the fell. Brilliant views from the summit cairn and from the second cairn a short walk away. This was fell number 400 since I started logging my walks about ten years ago.flockwatcher20/02/2015
