Is it wrong to have a soft spot for Mungrisdale Common?

Mind you, I find many of Wainwright's grassy knolls distinctly underwhelming when compared with favourites like Bow Fell, Great Gable, Sca Fell, and Pillar. Even with those it's not the actual summits that hold the magic for me - with Pillar it's the route through Green Cove, Hind Cove and Pillar Cove; with Bowfell it's the Climbers Traverse to Bowfell Buttress (and also the Churns, often referred to as Bowfell Links); with Gable it's the various climbers approach paths and the Napes; and with Sca Fell it's the West Wall and Deep Gill
