Seat Sandal and St Sunday Crag Map

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.
