Walked this from Grasmere to Patterdale as part of C2C and it was a great day with a variation of gradual and steep uphill with a few wet rocky parts, but then a wide windy ridge across St Sunday Crag to peak at The Cape.

We passed this as part of the C2C walk. A very beautiful place with great views back to Patterdale. A spectacle not to be missed.

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
