Elaine Evans walked up on September 23rd, 2019 [from/via/route] From Wasdale campsite carpark, via corpse road towards Burnmoor Tarn, ascended to Sca Fell then descended to Slight Side, back to corpse road and returned to car. [with] Sue [weather] Wonderful walking weather - fair, sunshine and cloud with a cooling breeze. Poor visibility on Sca Fell summit. - Very boggy ground on way up and on way down.

Bay Wan bagged on August 25th, 2019 [from/via/route] Slight Side to Scafell loop (avoided Scafell Pike like the plague because a) it was August Bank holiday weekend and b) I heard it was all bouldery so not really my bag) [with] Cocoa dog - 8 yrs old [weather] Sunny summers day. 25 degrees. Lovely with a breeze. Cooking without. - Path disappeared after about an hour on the way up to Slight Side at Whinscales and it's pretty boggy in most if the way, however, treading a lesser used path has its advantages being I saw no one until I neared Scafell! Didn't enjoy the scree descent down from Scafell and the boggy return, although the path was better here.
