An excellent walk taking in an unusual combination of hills, and full of interest all the way.

Description

Wainwright states that the popular fell of St Sunday Crag is only a matter of three miles from the road at Dunmail.

This is a very interesting walk, showing in detail many excellent views of the fells in the area.

St Sunday Crag is a very lovely fell with good views.

Well recomended! The summit of Seat Sandal.

By using a newer path than the one in Wainwrights book 1, a direct climb up the front of the fell is a good test of fitness! The quick descent down to the tarn opens up a whole new world of routes available.

After an interesting and straightforward climb a ridge is gained with Fairfield up to the right and St Sunday Crag to the left.

This is a grand summit, worthy of a good inspection and a lunch stop to see the view.

This section alongside the tarn to the descent down raise beck can be quite wet but without doubt it is a quick way down. © dangerdave - UKHillwalking.com, Jan 2012
