A quick route up Seat Sandal

Mist and drizzle was the order of the day, but at least on Sunday it didn’t sap the desire to head for a proper walk. Seat Sandal is quite close to the road, making it easy to do in a few hours as a quick walk before heading home.

The route up the Little Tongue Gill path and as you can see the mist was circling.

Further up you can just about see that the path runs up and over the top of the crag to the right. The mist had settled and the wind had picked up.

Once at the col at Grisdale Hause you cross the wall and head up to the left up a scree bank. This photo is looking back to the wall and the small shelter. From here on a clear day there would be a good view of Grisedale Tarn (to the left of this shot).

There is a cairn around here somewhere!

I continued straight over the top to descend the southwest ridge of the mountain, to head straight back to the path near the farm. Half way down I finally got a good view of Grasmere.

A good walk even if, as usual, there was no view from the top. The walk took two hours as a round.
