This is a great walk and love the route that you took. We did a similar walk a few years back now that included Seat Sandal, Nethermost Pike, Dollywaggon Pike, and Helvellyn. It was a beautiful day and was lucky enough to have very little people in sight throughout our walk too. So this brings back memories of that walk for sure. If it's of any use to you for another day out then check it out and see what you think. :D
