Up the old Coffin Road to Burnmoor Tarn and then across the bog - fortunately dry - towards Scafell. Up beside the stream and a steep clamber on a reasonable path through scree and rock to the summit. Then along the ridge down to Slight Side and then across the moor back down to Boot via Stony Tarn and Eel Tarn and the wonderfully named Peelplace Doddle. [with] Flash [weather] Hot and sunny for ascent. Cloudy and breezy on top of Scafell. Sunny patches through the afternoon. - Flash's first Lake District Walk - and, boy, was he tired afterwards. A delightful climb from Boot on the Old Coffin Road to Wasdale Head and then a springy moorland stroll to Burnmoor Tarn. Good thing it was dry, making crossing the bog to Long Gill quite easy. A steep slog over grass and then scree to the top. Only a dozen others on an August Bank Holiday Saturday. Lunch then an easy stroll above Cam Spout and Tom Fox's Crag to Slight Side. A steep descent from there to the moor below and a faint path back to Boot as noted above. Got slightly lost at the very end and followed a poor path above the in-bye wall back to Boot. Flash found a stick on top of Scafell - somehow. Delighted! He found the scree hard work but coped well with boulders on top. A great day.
