Ascent Trip Reportstarted at Seathwaite and climbed up to the ridge next to teh waterfall. Then a scramble up to Base Brown (grade I) and further to Green gable. Short Lunch break and a more exposed scramble up to the top of Great Gable. Attempted to climb back down via the ridges of Napes Needle, but the rocks were wet and slippery and I nearly became cragfast without a rope. So had to scramble back up and descent via the scree. Back Sty Heag Pass and down to Seathwaite.
