This is a contrived round involving a couple of descents and by default ascents. There are always plenty of cars parked at Chapel Bridge as many routes are possible from here. The first top of Robinson via the ridge of High Snab Bank is arguably amongst the best. The going is easy until a series of rock steps (no more involving than those on Catbells) is reached to concentrate the mind. On reaching the summit the fells around Buttermere open up in spectacular fashion. To reach the next top of Knott Rigg it is necessary to descend to the road at Newlands Hause, but it is worth a slight detour to High Snockrigg to appreciate the views down into the Buttermere valley. The tops of Knott Rigg and Ard Crags are taken in quick succession with impressive views to the Addacomb Ridge on Wandope. The descent to the Sail Beck / Rigg Beck pass is on spongy moss and grass. The climb to Sail Pass is on an angled track through heather and is easily accomplished. There follows the enjoyable ridge route along Scar Crags to reach the distinctive top of Causey Pike. It is it's rocky knob that identifies it from every direction. Descending Causey Pike, rock has to be handled, which gives the summit a real mountaineering feel. There follows a great deal of heather over and down from Rowling End. If preferred a more direct route can be taken from Sleet Hause in the direction of Stonycroft.
