Kevin Foster walked up on March 4th, 2020 [from/via/route] Hobcarton Crag. [with] Henry. [weather] Cloudy with light snow showers. - The North East ridge offers a direct easy scramble to the summit but I elected for the easier ascent from Coledale Hause via the col between Grasmoor and Crag Hill. The views from just beyond the trig point (above Eel Crag) are superb especially towards Keswick and the Skiddaw range.
Bill Salisbury climbed on March 21st, 2020 [from/via/route] Newlands [with] Sue [weather] Cloudy windy
Christine Shepherd bagged on September 22nd, 2007 [from/via/route] I walked from Braithwaite using walk c137 'The Coldale Round'. [with] On my own [weather] Perfect walking weather; bright and clear - This is a fantastic walk with wonderful views. The pull up Grisedale Pike is hard work but well worth it. Climbed again as part of the 10 in 10 challenge. 22.6.19.
Simon Boddy hiked on September 17th, 2019 [from/via/route] Rannerdale [with] HF Holidays [weather] Sunny and clear
Richard Marchant summited on October 3rd, 1993 [from/via/route] We parked at the car park just before the visitors centre up in Whinlatter Pass. The walk was basically Coledale Round starting with a walk through the Hospital Plantation on to the ridge of Sleet How and the ascent of Grisedale Pike then on to Hopegill Head-Sand Hill down to Coledale Hause followed then by the ascent of Crag Hill (Eel Crag) to Sail and then descended to Outerside missing out on Causey Pike due to Marlene shattered as it had been a long day for her, so then to Stile End and down into Braithwaite and back up the road to the car. That trek up the road seem to go on for ever and was a bad move. [with] Marlene & Alan Harker [weather] A fine day with no wind and wall to wall sunshine - Carried out the Coledale Round with Marlene and Alan Harker and the memorable thing we still laugh about today was the the pubs didn't open all day then and when we got into Braithwaite everything was closed and Marlene was so looking forward to a half of Shandy.
