Fellow go4awalkers who have already walked, climbed, summited & bagged Cold Pike
Kevin Foster walked up on July 30th, 2021 [from/via/route] The Old Dungeon Ghyll National Trust car park. [with] By myself. [weather] Light rain, cloud base down, very limited visibility. - The next three tops along the Cold Pike ridge were a bit tricky to locate in mist. But by referring to my phone apps, my OS map and my Nuttalls guide book I was able to confidently bag them all. As Sod's Law dictates, as I returned to the top of the Browney Gill paved path for my long descent back down into Oxendale, the clouds began slowly lifting so that most of Pike o' Blisco was now visible (just the summit itself was still in mist). At least I'm coming back here to do the Crinkles and I'll make sure I pick a better day for it!

Clare Tait hiked on September 27th, 2020 [from/via/route] Parked near the Three Shires Stones. Couldn't see how to do it in a mile though as the sign post indicated.

[with] Charlie [weather] Sunshine. - No 57 Wainwright!
Sarah Hamer summited on September 1st, 2020 [from/via/route] Started out with blue skies and a spring in my step - more rock climbing than the guide would give you an indication of - bagged with Crinkle Crags and Cold Pike [with] Chris Hamer [weather] Started off sunny and 15 degrees - wind at the top which is to be expected but not enough to be an issue - The views from Crinkle Crags were just SPECTACULAR - seeing where we had been and where we were to go.
