Kevin Foster summited on May 17th, 2019 [from/via/route] Place Fell via Boredale Hause and Angletarn Pikes [with] Henry. [weather] Sunny and hot to begin with becoming cloudier later on with a fresh northerly breeze. - The approach from Boredale Hause via Angletarn Pikes is quite interesting with great views along the way of Brothers Water, Kirkstone Pass and Hayeswater. Rest Dodd's remote position at the head of Martindale makes it one for the 'baggers'. The top is marked with a small cairn of stones but the flagpole mentioned in the wainwright books is sadly no longer there.
