Scawgill Bridge. From here we followed the path alongside the wall all the way to the top, and about 300m from the top the rain really started to come down and the wind picked up.
Now at one of the summits of Graystones.
The wainwright summit is to the left of the stone wall that runs over the top of the fell. You can just see the cairn on the highest point.
