[with] My wife Faith [weather] Sunny day with some cloud, wind very cold & strong near summit. Standing still for summit photo was a bit of a challenge - A lovely short day on the fells, Easedale Tarn is beautiful & so peaceful. The route up from tarn to fell top was difficult to find, partly my own fault as we looked across to the fell & decided where the path was based on a line we saw across the fell but this was not a real path! The route down was sometimes a challenge as paths just petered out at the brink of a big drop requiring a bit of skirting round, but it was still a good day overall.
