(Barrow, Stile End, Outerside, Sail, Scar Crags and Causey Pike). [with] Myself. [weather] Warm and sunny day. A short spell of low cloud around Sail. - A shorter Coledale Round starting at Braithwaite. An accurate route description which was followed. The only deviation was to include Sail on the easy to follow zig - zag path from the col between Sail and Scar Crags. The steep descent from Causey Pike was interesting so easy does it is the best way. Time took 5 and 1/2 hrs.

Started off sunny and hot but was 40mph winds at the top and complete cloud. Very windy and cold, much nicer at lower heights - Hard going to start with but a lovely easy to follow track.
