Chris Sheard climbed on May 18th, 2022 [from/via/route] Along from Sail crossing over to next ridge [with] George [weather] Pleasant at ground level, no rain brightened later later with sunshine as we completed the round - Made this ascent as part of a nice circular coming down the other side of a horse shoe

Mark Hazelton bagged on June 6th, 2021 [from/via/route] Walked up from Crummock up front of Grasmoor (not summitted), over to Crag Hill,Wandope & Whiteless Pike [with] Family and Pepper [weather] Sunny - It's a slog up Grasmoor

Tim Winn hiked on May 26th, 2021 [from/via/route] Keswick [with] Jane, Louise and Barry [weather] Good

Claire Murray summited on April 4th, 2021 [from/via/route] Coledale Horseshoe. Grisedale Pike, Hopegill Head, Crag Hill, Sail & Outerside [with] Vitor [weather] Awful! Started off sunny & hot but was 40mph winds at the top & complete cloud. Very windy & cold, much nicer at lower heights - Hard going to start with but a lovely easy to follow track. Would be much nicer on a day with better weather

Nick Christian conquered on September 14th, 2020 [from/via/route] Griesdale Pike [with] Karen Brown [weather] Good Sunny

Richard Marshall scaled on August 6th, 2020 [from/via/route] From Crummock Water [with] Bo and Dave Jones [weather] Hot, Sunny/Cloudy little bit of drizzle for 20 mins

Claire Kirk climbed on July 11th, 2020 [from/via/route] Braithwaite [with] Phil [weather] Low cloud & drizzly to start, sun came out in the afternoon

Kevin Foster bagged 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 & Crag Hill. The views from just beyond the trig point (above Eel Crag) are superb especially towards Keswick & the Skiddaw range.
