A steep climb path gets very icy so take care but worth it when you get to the top and go prepared for all weather

We took the sticks pass way up to Hevellyn. It was heavy down pouring for the whole walk up, the wind picked up and lashed our faces and we lost visibility completely. Not worth the perilous final 100m to get to the top. Glad we tried it but better to do it on a dry day as conditions can get very dangerous up there.
