Kevin Foster bagged Kirk Fell (East Top) on May 14th, 2021 [from/via/route] Honister Pass (slate mine). [with] By myself. [weather] Low clouds down on tops gradually lifting. - I remember climbing Kirk Fell many years ago from Ennerdale in thick mist thinking it was Great Gable. Imagine my disappointment when I found out it wasn't & I still had Gable to climb. Thankfully my map reading skills have improved since then. Anyway the clouds had completely lifted off Kirk Fell today so navigation was easy even if the climbing wasn't.

I found the steepness quite a struggle. Lunch in shelter at top before finding the sister top by descending to the tarn.
