Kate Peacock summited on March 19th, 2022 [from/via/route] Peter House Farm via the Cumbrian Way [with] Just me [weather] Beautiful sunny day however the winds were crazy once I got up higher - Overshot the way up & had to come back a little & climb over a fence. Drying out nicely but the winds made it impossible to relax at the top. Very boggy at the bottom. Returned the same way I had gone up due to winds.

Claire Kirk conquered on February 11th, 2022 [from/via/route] Gale Road car park [with] Alone [weather] Quite cold when not sheltered - wind chill at times. Clear day.

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 walked up 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
