[with] Sue and Christine [weather] Dry but very, very windy and cold on the tops. - Followed walk c130 (in reverse). Good day out but had the wind against us for much of the summit walk which increased the difficulty level. Beautiful late afternoon sunshine as we descended. Visibility hazy.

Craig Steeland hiked on July 9th, 2018 [from/via/route] From Bowness Knott car park with bike used to start of walk [with] On my own [weather] Hot and sunny with no wind.

Clive Ward bagged on July 29th, 2016 [from/via/route] Scaly Moss. See Grike for details [with] Solo - Extended route C340 to do this one

Doug Martin hiked on August 1st, 2016 [from/via/route] Kirk Fell, Pillar, Little Scoat Fell, Haycock - then came back on myself to below Scoat Fell and cut over to Red Pike and off down Dore Head [with] Solo [weather] Wonderful day to be in lakes - sunshine , cloud on occasion and cooling breeze - most importantly no rain. - Having come up from Ennerdale on a few occasions always seemed to miss Caw Fell so decided to tag it on to my ascent of Kirk Fell as I was coming in that direction sort of - didn't look too much after Little Scoat Fell and in reality it wasn't - that is apart from the 4k each way and up and down Haycock twice. Had perfect weather to just stride out. Reminder of the day - Descent down the scree slope at Dore Head - confirmed I'm bordering on fringe of madness - definitely not one for the faint hearted.

Victoria Bates has summited [from/via/route] Ennerdale [with] Mark [weather] Cold, wet and windy - Last Western Fell :)
