A lovely name for a lovely fell: Silver How is delightful. Not because the summit is remarkable, except for the view; the grassy top is indeed, the least of its attractions. It is the rough slopes that delight the eye, especially on the Grasmere side for the intermingling of crag and conifer, juniper and bracken , is landscape artistry at its best.
