We parked up at The Woolpack car park then set off to Sca Fell via Throstle Garth/Great Moss/Cam Spout/Mickledore/Lords Rake we then descended to Great How.We then headed for Eel Tarn to pick up the path back down to The Woolpack.A couple of pints of Aspall's Cider on our return was a welcome reward after a boggy arduous hike with P61 & Mark.

Visited as part of completing Wainwright Outliers (Boat How) and Birketts (Great How and Whinscales). Parking is very limited around Boot but there is a pull off opposite the camp site entrance by Eelbeck Bridge on the Hard Knott Pass road. A fabulous and easy round taking in the stone circles on Brat's Moss and the splendid Burnmoor Tarn. The bolt is easily found on the rock platform besides the cairn. I had wonderful, warm weather , blue skies and views for miles. I met no-one except near Burnmoor and because Great How is of no interest to Wainwright baggers the little known Oliver Gill is a hidden paradise that only us trigpointers will see.

Easily found, 1.5m S of summit cairn on flat slab outcrop. Out for a dozen Birketts & Synges on a lovely warm clear October day, revisited this summit having seen the trig symbol on POI and Explorer.
