Richard Banks walked up on March 14th, 2020 [from/via/route] Langdale [weather] Dreadful

Andrew Johnson climbed on February 5th, 2020 [from/via/route] Old DG [with] Ted [weather] Cleared to blue skies at some points, Snow on top with some hail

Elaine Evans bagged on August 29th, 2019 [from/via/route] From Old Dungeon Gill ascended to Bow Fell via The Band and Three Tarns, retraced our steps to Three Tarns then on to Shelter Crags and Crinkle Crags, descended to Red Tarn and back to car park. [with] Sue [weather] Fine, dry and good for walking to start with, strong wind and poor visibility on reaching summit made conditions very difficult. - Didn't see the amazing views we'd heard about. Had the wind got so bad on the way up we would have abandoned our plans and descended but it really caught us out. Lots of people changing their plans due to weather conditions.

Richard Marchant hiked on October 28th, 1993 [from/via/route] This was a walk carried out just by me from New Dungeon Ghyll and took me up Stickle Ghyll to Stickle Tarn up the back on to Langdale Pikes taking in both Pikes and on to Martcrag moor round to Rossett Pike and to Angle Tarn up to Ore Gap-Esk Pike-Bow Fell-Crinkle Crags-Great Knott- Pike of Blisco then back down to New Dungeon Ghyll. [with] On my own. [weather] Wet dull dreary day.

Paul Macey summited on June 19th, 2019 [from/via/route] Langdale [with] Luke Macey [weather] dry some sun

Nick Dobson conquered on June 9th, 2018 [from/via/route] Old Dungeon through Oxendale towards Red Tarn. [with] Margaret & Ralph [weather] bright and sunny with excellent views and scenery. - It was our 18th wedding anniversary, and we had a table booked early evening at the 1863 Bistro in Pooley Bridge. After completing the 5 Crinkles, we contemplated going up Bowfell as well. We changed our minds considering the time, and made our way back down the band, getting soaked as we neared the bottom. (An excellent decision in hindsight)

Craig Steeland scaled on November 26th, 2018 [from/via/route] From Three Shires Stone in Wrynose Pass. [with] Sue [weather] Sunny with no wind and unseasonably warm.

David Watson walked up on August 25th, 2018 [from/via/route] Old Dungeon Ghyll [weather] Sunny

Phillip Bulley climbed on May 7th, 2018 [from/via/route] Via Cold Pike [with] Ruby. [weather] Sunny and very warm.
