On 31 October 2013 I decided to get my boots on and see what it was like on the third highest mountain in the Yorkshire Dales!
The route is very easy to follow from either Hardraw or Thwaite.
I chose to climb up the Southern slopes from Hardraw which gave some wonderful views to the east looking over to Buttertubs Pass and equally impressive views to the west towards Cotterdale.
This is probably one to avoid on a wet overcast day! Visibility can be very poor on the moor approaching the summit and in areas where it is not flagged it can be extremely boggy underfoot!
