Richard Fulcher walked up on July 31st, 2021 [from/via/route] Jen dropped me at the Gale Road car park & I started off along the Cumbria Way around Lonscale Fell. I ascended up on the edge of Lonscale Crags to Lonscale Fell & then walked over Jenkin Hill to Little Man. From there I joined the main route up to Skiddaw & over the other side to Bakestall. I descended via Birkett Edge & then followed the Cumbria Way route down to Peter House Farm. I walked down the road to Walk Mill Bridge where Jen picked me up. [weather] Low cloud but otherwise reasonable weather. - The initial climb up Lonscale was tough (unfit!) but the other climbs were separated by easier sections.

Chris Sheard climbed on June 28th, 2021 [from/via/route] Down ridge from Skiddaw [with] George and adopted Sarah [weather] Warm, slight winds a bit oppressive in calm valleys - Nice mountain, seemed nothing until meeting Cumbrian way when it showed itself as quite impressive
