After a very steep drop on grass off the northern edge of Seatallan to the col, I aimed to the left of prominent Gowder Crag to ascend to the col between Scoat Fell & Haycock. Then turned left up the clear rocky path to the summit. There are two piles of stones either side of the wall but the southern side is considered slightly higher. A few metres south on a rocky promontory is a small cairn which gives the best views.
