Our second fell of the weekend was a little trickier than expected although I had been told the top was slightly confusing. I have to say i'm not exactly sure if I found it. I'm told the wainwright is called Bessyboot but this is not the highest point on the fell. The high point is Rossthwaite Cam and involves a nice little scrabble to reach the top which is 300 feet higher than the point said to be the wainwright.
