Light wind. Very good views - Wise to ascend the gill to Seathwaite Fell, as difficult to spot access point from above. Lunch stop at shelter before Allen Crags and continuing to find the actual summit cairns amongst others placed on Red Beck Top and Glaramara. Confusion coming off Glaramara, as strayed off path and veering off to the east too early. Difficult descent of Hind Gill. Mountain rescue and Air rescue on Great End crags

Colin Egan walked up on June 8th, 2017 [from/via/route] From Seathwaite and the Grains Gill track, hence to Sprinkling Tarn and out onto Seathwaite Fell. Return via Stye Head [with] My wife Faith. [weather] Atrocious walking conditions, heavy rain and strong winds. - This was the only fell we felt was safe enough to do in such weather, but when you only have 3 walking days you need to be creative with your planning. The streams and waterfalls were at their most impressive but not ideal weather for photos!! The paths were awash in many places, really testing the waterproofing on boots. Sadly mine did not quite hold the damp at bay but Faith's did. We delayed our start til the rain eased but it came back on to rain within half an hour. It had stopped by the time we topped out onto Esk Hause. No view from the summit, as we were in cloud by then, in fact we only found it thanks to other walkers creating a faint but definite track, occasionally backed by spot GPS readings on our location. I have always poo-poo'd sat navs but they do have their uses at times like this. As we walked back towards Stye Head the wind increased and nearly blew us over on several occasions, at one point gusts were blowing water off a waterfall back up into the air. Not unexpected but the Stye Head track where it crosses the bridge over the stream was under inches of water forcing us to divert away from the path by the stream out onto the rough stony fell side. We stopped for a final breather by the 1000ft boulder and were just eating a roll with coffee when the heavens opened again. So much for nearly drying out!! One of the most dramatic days ever and all to bag such a simple fell.
