Ascended the crag via pinnacle ridge, a grade 3 scramble which advised use of a rope, 5 of us went up in normal boots and packs, no problem! Excellent climb, the hardest bits can be detoured around (including the only vertical climb), really good fun.

Great experience in the snow and made good use of our crampons and ice axes. Others not so well equipped struggled in places

From Patterdale up to St Sunday Crag there was a good path leading to the summit. The views from the summit of St Sunday Crag were amazing but it was rather windy. The path to Grisedale Tarn is narrow and rocky and in parts a little slippery. From Grisdale Tarn, the path descended gently along the Tongue Gill to Grasmere.... More

You get high quite quickly with lovely views over Ullswater. We walked with an 11 and 13 year old so good for those sort of ages

If you've got the skills, Pinnacle Ridge on St Sunday Crag is a great little scramble. A bit awkward to find ("Scrambles in the Lake District: North" has a decent description of the approach) but once on the route, it's superb.
