Sarah Hamer walked up on August 20th, 2020 [from/via/route] Glenridding - parked up and took on Nethermost Pike, Dollywaggon Pike and Birkhouse Moor - Striding Edge - near meltdown [with] Chris Hamer, David May and Maddie [weather] Started off sunny and 17 degrees - wind got up and on the top it was really blowing, a little shower but once away from the tops the wind dies down - thank goodness - My memory of Striding Edge must have been buried as this was the 3rd time of taking it on. A good one to start off on - the others surely can only be easier!!

Andy Buxton climbed on April 25th, 1992 [from/via/route] From Patterdale. Circular walk: Birks, St.Sunday Crag, Fairfield,Dollywagon Pike, Nethermost Pike,Birkhouse Moor [with] SPI Lewis [weather] Cool, clear day, but windy. - Enjoyable route. Only merit is its another Wainwright knoked off.

Michael Austin bagged on June 28th, 2019 [from/via/route] Striding Edge

Victoria Bates hiked on May 12th, 2017 [from/via/route] Glenridding

Kevin Foster summited on October 24th, 2019 [from/via/route] Patterdale [with] By myself. [weather] Blue skies cloud developing later on Striding Edge and Helvellyn. - The route I took was a new approach for me; leaving the 'hole in the wall' track which leads direct to Striding Edge I followed a minor path to the right climbing to the wall running over Birkhouse Moor. A hidden stile negotiated this substantial structure. Good job I didn't bring Henry though. Lugging a 30 Kg Labrador over that would have been hard work. Near the top of the final climb I encountered a couple in their golden years ( he was a sprightly 79) who asked me the way to Striding Edge! They had previously climbed Cat Bells and The Dodd and thought they would have a go on Striding Edge. They quickly changed their minds when I pointed it out and said it was a scramble not a walk. In the end I think they headed for a lunch stop at Red Tarn before descending back down the main path to Glenridding.

Richard Marchant conquered on October 28th, 2010 [from/via/route] From Glenridding up on to Birkhouse Moor to Striding Edge-Helvellyn-Swirl Edge-Catstye Cam down to Red Tarn up to the Hole in the Wall and followed the footpath down in to Grisedale and cut back up to Lanty's Tarn and down to the car in Glenridding. [with] My oldest son James. [weather] Overcast but dry and the cloud level was above Helvellyn, also very light winds. - First time for James on Striding Edge.

John Tippins scaled on October 27th, 2018 [from/via/route] Started from Glenridding car park. Walk c220 from go4awalk.com [with] Solo [weather] Very sunny all day but biting northerly wind - wind chill minus 11. Was quite warm in sheltered spots - if you can find any on the way up Helvellyn.

Nick Dobson walked up on March 23rd, 2019 [from/via/route] Glenridding via Mires Beck [with] Margaret, & Ralph [weather] bright but chilly day with patches of snow on route, great views of a snow covered Helvelyan. - First Wainwright of 2019, that's 130 done now hopefully a decent year with the weather can see a good reduction in the remaining 84.

Andrew Peate climbed on October 31st, 2018 [from/via/route] From Grisedale Bridge [weather] Cloudy then wet and windy

Christine Shepherd bagged on June 13th, 2009 [from/via/route] Walked from Glennridding. [with] On my own [weather] Bright and sunny - Took a detour to bag this summit while friends had a break at 'The Hole in The Wall'. Climbed it again on 25.9.10 at the start of a brilliant day's walking using walk c264.
