Kevin Foster climbed on July 2nd, 2021 [from/via/route] The Old Dungeon Ghyll National Trust car park. [with] By myself. [weather] Some clouds. - The paved path to the head of Rossett Gill goes up & down a bit & passes Angle Tarn. I would have stayed for a break here but the wind had picked up & it had clouded over so I decided to press on. The ascent of Rossett Pike from the top of the rise to the head of Rossett Gill is quite easy ( a five minute walk). Descending back into Langdale via the packhorse path has improved due to large sections being paved but it is still long & my knees were glad to reach the valley floor. A classic walk!
