Car parking for this one can be tricky, but getting there early is a big help.  You need to park off the road on Wrynose Pass, so choose your parking spot carefully!

This is a reasonable walk on a reasonably well defined path, but we did check the route before hand as it's not obvious from the start.  Once past Red Tarn it becomes more well defined.  Again this summit has a good 2m takeoff and 15 QSOs were added to the SOTA log which included 4 S2S QSOs ; Hart Fell, Scaw'd Fell, Helvellyn and Moel Siabod.  Plus Nick G0HIK (my SOTA buddy) had taken microwave kit, so a 23cm and 13cm QSO were in the log too.  Thanks as always to everyone who came back to the calls.
