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!

[with] Charlie [weather] Sunshine. - No 57 Wainwright!
