Kevin Foster scaled on May 17th, 2019 [from/via/route] Rest Dodd [with] Henry. [weather] Sunny and hot to begin with becoming cloudier later on with a cold northerly breeze. - There is quite a steep pull from the col between Rest Dodd and The Knott. Once the main C2C path is reached the gradient eases as the path skirts The Knott, which turns out to be just a shoulder of the main fell, and carries onto Ramspgill Head. A cairn above the crags denotes the summit and has the best views but isn't quite the highest ground which lies just beyond in the vicinity of a small tarn.
