There is a small car park about 100m south of Troutbeck Church where the river flows under the under the road at a bridge. Large enough for about 6/7 cars also laybys on the Kirkstone Pass road which some people were using when the car is full.

That was my first Wainwright, about this time 4 years ago - nice to see it again :)
I like the view back down the valley.
