Starting from Seathwaite we turned right through the farm, up Sour Milk Gill, pass Base Brown, over Green Gable and scrambled to the top of Great Gable.
Nothing too difficult or dangerous.
The way down was by a different route, which ended up south west of Styhead Tarn. We followed the river, over Stockley Bridge and back to the farm.
At a leisurely pace it took five and a half hours.
I've walked from Seathwaite several times and only just noticed (perhaps it's new) that the farmer allows parking on a field next to the farm. This is well worth £3.00 a day for a shorter walk and the knowledge that you won't get blocked in if you park on the narrow approach road. I've seen people blocked in before - not something you want after a hard day walking!
