Pinnacle ridge is good climbing but tough to find in poor visibility, St Sunday crag is a satisfying view - when the clouds lift!

Fairly strenuous climb up from Patterdale but again if the weather is good great views of the helvellyn and high street ranges.

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

St Sunday was our backup if Blencathra was too dangerous so we did not go to St Sunday but the research made it seem worthy

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
