WOs 46; Bs 42,43,44 and 45. A showery day but stayed mostly dry. Parked on the Eskdale to Ulpha road below Great Worm Crag and went straight up over rough ground. Difficult terrain continued over White How, Broad Crag and Great Crag with no paths and so-called path back mentioned by W as outward route was continuous bog and very unpleasant.BURGESS27/07/2017
