Just did this walk on the 19th May,2010 but turned back on second half of the walk when path petered out amid a forest of stumps and no sign posts.Finished the walk by returning to the stile and following the sign post to Hawkshead.

Couldn't spot the less steep path to the top, but straight up was fine. Worth noting that the majority of the woodland in the second half of the walk has been felled. Leaving you walking through a lanscape of stumps, with no markers. Overall though an enjoyable walk.

It's a good walk with a great view at Latterbarrow.
