Kevin Foster climbed on July 22nd, 2017 [from/via/route] Dale Head Farm, Silverdale road [with] By myself [weather] Rain to start, low cloud but then tops clearing and hot and sunny. - Disappointed to have no view from the summit and a coach load of walkers already at the trig point. The climb through the two bands of rock was quite exhilarating though. PYG is a very fine mountain and a worthy member of the Yorkshire 3 Peaks club. I decided to not hang about and pushed on for Plover Hill leaving the crowds behind.

Andy Jakob bagged during August, 1985 [from/via/route] Pennine Way north to south - climbed this more than once
