Richard Fulcher walked up Sergeant's Crag on June 24th, 2024 [from/via/route] Parked next to the red telephone box in Stonethwaite (7:50am). Crossed the bridge & turned right following Stonethwaite Beck. Crossed river at Smithmire Island & followed the path on the other side of Greenup Gill to second pasture, turning right to follow the wall steeply up to Bleak How following Wainwright's route 'A'. Some climbing / scrambling required but nothing out of the ordinary for a 66 year old! After Eagle Crag I followed vague paths over the boggy terrain to Sergeant's Crag & then headed for Long Crag, finding a small path that traces the top of this crag & then crosses the bridleway that joins up with Grasmere? Followed an intermittent path up to Ullscarf that follows an old fence line ( only the iron posts remain). After Ullscarf I retraced my steps back to the bridleway turning right to follow this path down the valley & back to Stonethwaite. [weather] Started warm & cloudy but as the day wore on the clouds disappeared & the sun was fierce! - Great views of many Lakeland mountain ranges from Ullscarf. The heat made the descent very taxing. The route down is rocky with many opportunities to break your ankle.

From here I carried on to Sergeant's Crag & then up to Low White Stones before turning & heading Northeast ridging around to Ullscarf then along to Coldbarrow Fell & Northwest to Dock Tarn.
