Julie Besbrode walked up Atkinson Pike on August 4th, 2021 [with] Damian, Sam, Robin, Oli & Cameron (Oli's friend) [weather] Warm & sunny

Christine Shepherd climbed Atkinson Pike on April 23rd, 2006 [from/via/route] Walked from Scales Climbed again 10.08.2021 using walk c245 [with] Rebecca [weather] Cool but sunny

Kevin Foster bagged Atkinson Pike on April 13th, 2021 [from/via/route] Hallsfell Top [with] By myself [weather] Sunny to start but clouding over later. Clear visibility on tops. Cold when you stopped moving. - Another easy saunter from Hallsfell Top (this time in a sort of north easterly direction). A memorial cross marked out with white stones is a point of interest en route just after the tarn-let. It's worth making the detour right to the top of Sharp Edge for the dramatic aerial views even if not making a descent that way. I chickened out of the descent this way (I have done Sharp Edge in ascent many years ago I hasten to add) & headed off for the col dividing Blackhazel Beck from the Glenderamackin River. At the col I took the right sided path down the valley (as I had used the left sided path on the approach to Bannerdale Crags last November). As I reached the outflow from Scales Tarn I was sorely tempted to climb back up the stony path & have another go at Sharp Edge but time pressures prevailed so I carried on the track to Mousthwaite Comb vowing I'd return someday. This walk completed my Northern Fells section of the Nuttalls list.Only the Western & Southern Fells to go. However these two sections are the largest by some margin with 29 & 45 separate tops respectively!
