Colin Egan summited on April 7th, 2017 [from/via/route] From the NT car park by the Old Dungeon Ghyll hotel, via Mickleden and Rossett Gill [with] My wife Faith. [weather] Day started cloudy but the sun then started coming through, wind cold on summit. By the end of the day we had full sun. - This was our 204th Wainwright leaving us 10 to go and it fitted the bill perfectly. The path up Rossett Gill is testimate to the skill and ingenuity of the Lake District path builders. It is still a tough climb but they have so engineered it that you can follow it with confidence. Some might argue that it reduces the fells to a pavement but it stops us wandering here and there and making a mess of the fell side. The walk back along Mickleden in the late afternoon sun was magical. The pint at the Old Dungeon Ghyill was almost as good. Saw our first swallow of the year whilst enjoying our post walk drink. A very good end to a special week in the lakes.
