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.
