The Falkirk High Tops Team and I visited the Lake District today. The original plan had been to visit Glencoe but with forecast torrential rain we opted to go south. This proved to be a good choice as we had dry weather all day.

We completed the classic scramble Pinnacle Ridge on St. Sunday Crag.  The rock was dry. The crux corner is currently very green and requires care.

People often have difficulty locating this route. The best way to locate the route is to look back down into Grisedale. Directly downhill from the route is a large sheep pen which appears to be part of a wall. Just underneath the ridge is a large fan of scree.

As the guidebooks suggest, this is one of the best scrambles in the Lake District.
