Kevin Foster hiked on April 19th, 2019 [from/via/route] Swindale Lane. [with] Henry. [weather] Sunny with very little breeze making it quite hot for walking. - There is a lot of height to give up and regain between Branstree and Tarn Crag so be warned. But the top itself and the views from it are certainly well worth the effort to climb it even on a hot sunny spring day. Whilst I had my second sandwich break, Henry cooled himself off in the tiny tarn by the ordnance survey tower and came out covered in wet muddy peat afterwards. The couple I met on my way to Grey Crag were very amused when they saw him coming towards them. I told them that he was having a spa treatment day!
