Simon Boddy summited on April 19th, 2019 [from/via/route] Glenridding [with] My girlfriend [weather] A lovely warm and sunny day. Cooler at the summit though.
Nick Dobson conquered on July 25th, 2018 [from/via/route] Glenridding [with] Margaret,Ralph, & Kate [weather] Sunny day with bright blue skies - Kate could'nt be bothered with the 10 minute amble from Swirrall Edge to Catstye Cam top,so the usual suspects duly completed it before returning to collect her on route to the days main objective Helvelyan.
Andrew Peate scaled on November 23rd, 2018 [from/via/route] From Glenridding [weather] Cold and sunny. Sprinkling of snow on tops.
Caroline Winter walked up on August 9th, 2018 [from/via/route] Glen ridding, Stiding Edge, Helvellyn, Swirral Edge, Catstye Cam [with] Becky [weather] warm, clear skies, light breeze - After battling with the new Ticket machine at Glenridding CP for 20 mins, we eventually got away. Hot and sticky long ascent. Rather than doubling back, should have taken a direct line to hole in the wall. Third time lucky, due to poor weather, did Striding-perfect conditions. No problem for Becky on tricky climb section. Others struggling! Made for Dolly Waggon Pike, but time and energy against us, so came back to top Helvellyn, and Catsye Cam via Swirral. Enjoyed a needed drink in Hole in the Wall cafe at YH. My boots painful-time for a new pair!
