Kevin Foster climbed on April 19th, 2019 [from/via/route] Swindale Lane. [with] Henry. [weather] Sunny with very little breeze making it quite hot for walking. - Most people miss out this top taking the shortest route between Selside Pike and Branstree by following the fence. However, by crossing the fence at the col you can make a gentle five minute ascent over grass to the small cairn marking this subsidiary top on Branstree. The obvious path back towards Artlecrag Pike passes two small tarns and the old ordnance survey tower with glimpses of Haweswater reservoir below, a good place to stop and take photos.
