GR.210083 300m E Facing Because these routes start from such a low altitude a prolonged cold snap is needed to bring them into condition. Approach: Follow the Styhead path from Wasdale and follow Lingmell beck instead of ascending up across the screes. Descent: Either descend the corridor path to Styhead or from the summit of Lingmell descend to join the path back down to Wasdale via Brown Tongue.
