Caroline Winter walked up on August 27th, 2019 [from/via/route] Seatoller car park, track up Rosthwaite Fell, Tarn at Leaves, Dovenest Fell. [with] Becky [weather] Gales force gusts predicted, needing to crouch and brace ourselves against wind on Rosthwaite Fell. Good visibity to Glaramara - Unable to park along road near start so back tracked to Seatoller House and parked in paid CP opposite-£6. Path disappears along Rosthwaite Fell, so climbed up to beneath Bessy Boot, where climbers could be heard. Came to Tarn at Leaves, and spotted what appeared to be Dovenest top. Found ourselves following a low route to the left, so climbed up to find the dome shaped top, as on photo in goforawalk, but nothing resembled. Got onto highest point, and altitude meter confirmed 632 M, but as other crags insight we also made way to a few others. Returned same route to car and returned home.
