This is a nice short walk with some great views from the summit of Hay Stacks. However, I disagree with Wainwright, in that this is not the best/most beautiful fell in the Lakes. It’s nice, but it’s not fantastic.

This was originally planned as a longer walk, taking in three more fells on the ridge from Hay Stacks, but the temperature was 27°C and there was no breeze. Deciding discretion was the better part of valour, I cut the walk short and descended after Seat.
