|Distance:||7.5 miles||Ascent:||3,300 feet|
|Weather:||Sunny with a cool breeze on the fell tops|
|Comments:||A fantastic day for a great walk. Taking a route up the flanks of Seat Sandal was quite tough and made the climb onto Fairfield seem much easier. Views across to the Coniston fells were very clear making it possible to name a number of Wainwright summits.|
