Great fun! We chose to go off route and take a longer walk up to make it a loop. That definitely made it a better route. Scramble on the way down and loose scree on the path to watch out for

Probably the most direct, but neither the easiest, most interesting nor most sensible route. If you’re strapped for time and running it works ok. Other routes from the Borrowdale side generally give more interest as would adding another top like Green Gable or Pillar.
