A strenuous walk due to the steepness of ascent from Thirlmere, but some lovely views until the cloud crept in. Next to no views from the summit due to weather conditions. I have also realised that the trig point does not mark the summit. I did visit the summit cairn but didn’t take any pictures; I’ll rectify that the next time I’m up there!

In hindsight I took the harsher and less rewarding route. I will do it again, but next time from Glenridding or Patterdale and along Striding Edge.
