Great hike, long but not too strenuous. Worth getting up early to do this one for less crowds.
Route is easy to navigate with all trails map. No toilets on route only at campsite at the start. Just a shame couldn’t see anything when we got to the top

my first hike for nearly over 10years, had an amazing day the view wernt the best because of low clouds but what a climb, very rocky at the start but the path gets easier as you go, just keep thinking your nearly there and you'll do it, that's my motto and I conquered it of to snowdan next week then the big Ben Nevis after then hitting irish peaks, I can say the pike got me attached.

One of the more interesting ways to do England’s highest point with varied terrain - but it feels a long way! If clockwise round this loop then going up a scramble on Great End - eg Cust’s Gully is a lot of fun and really add to the day!

Great hike! Unfortunately it was a cloudy misty day and views at top were limited.

Fantastic hike to see a more remote part of the Lake District mountains and scale the peak of England. Be prepared for very rocky terrain and plan more time in your hike. It was cloudy and difficult to scale that last part to the peak. On the way back you will get to a turnoff that goes up (see arrow on rock). It is a bit challenging for a moment, but provides better views on the way back. This hike was way more tiring that a similar distance hike we did to The Old Man Coniston but well worth it for the views, the feeling of having the mountain to yourself, various creeks, and solitude.
