John Bryers climbed on July 8th, 2020 [from/via/route] Used route C226.pdf. Parked on Dunmail Raise lower layby & walked down road to Mill Bridge. Due to erosion sign posts took me on the higher route on the Coast to Coast path, thus missing turn at the 2 footbridges. Walked direct to Grisedale Hause & turned left up to top of Seat Sandal. [with] With Mya my faithful 13 year old Patterdale Terrier. [weather] Cloudy with some sun. Cooler on the tops. - Lots of walkers on a Wednesday due to covid-19 still about.

Kevin Foster bagged on October 24th, 2019 [from/via/route] Patterdale [with] By myself. [weather] Blue skies (cloud developing later on Striding Edge & Helvellyn). - The route from Dollywagon Pike to Seat Sandal is indicated by a prominent metal fence post & is direct. A steep descent to the col followed by an equally steep slog beside a ruined wall makes a beeline straight for the top. By this time the sun was shining sun beams through the clouds & the light picking out the Lakeland fells was magical. After another steep rocky descent to the col with Fairfield I took the higher path skirting Grisedale tarn, intending to climb to the col the other side of Fairfield with St Sunday Crag., however common sense got the better of me as I realised I probably didn't have enough daylight hours to finish the next two tops so I called it a day & made my way down the Grisedale valley instead.
