Me and Nigel climbed this way to compare it to the other side. It is shorter on approach and offers less veiws but is a fine route never the less to Scafel or the Pike. It would be more of a day out to return via Great End and down to Sprinkling Tarn. We were glad of the shorter day because of damp weather and high winds.
"After the first glass, you see things as you wish they were. After the second, you see things as they are not. Finally, you see things as they really are, which is the most horrible thing in the world."
--Oscar Wilde on Absinthe
