Ascended by way of Grains Ghyll from Seathwaite where I met up with the DofE Gold Expedition group that I was assessing. Ascended and descended Scafell Pike by Esk Hause, Ill Crag and Broad Crag in poor visibility, rain and blustery wind. Wild camped overnight at Sprinkling Tarn, decending via Styhead Tarn to Seathwaite the following day.
