Seathwaite Farm, Stockley Bridge, faint path beside Aaron Crags, Seathwaite Fell, Sprinkling Tarn, Styhead Tarn, Styhead Gill, Stockley Bridge, Seathwaite Farm
|Start Point:||Roadside near Seathwaite Farm||Grid Reference:||NY 235 123|
|Distance:||6.5 miles||Ascent:||2,100 feet|
|Comments:||With good weather forecast we decided to return to Seathwaite to complete the walk we attempted to do on Sunday. We left the main footpath just after a small beck to climb steeply to the right of Aaron Crags. This was hard going but meant that we didn't have to return all the way on the outward route.|

as am I
The sun makes a brief appearance for a parting shot
Scafell Pike pops up in the distance . . .

We thought this picturesque tarn deserved a name?
