John Bryers walked up on July 8th, 2020 [from/via/route] Used route C226.pdf. Parked on Dunmail Raise lower layby and walked down road to Mill Bridge.

Back to Grisedale Hause and up zig-zag path to summit of Fairfield. Did not find trig point even with good visibility - Easy onward route to Great Rigg. Continued along ridge to Stone Arthur.
