Fellow go4awalkers who have already walked, climbed, summited & bagged Cross Fell
Mark Davidson walked up on February 14th, 2007 [with] MK and his mate who did all the Charity Walks (incl Land's End to John O'Groats) [weather] Clear & Sunny with a touch of snow on the tops - lovely
Margaret Richards climbed on September 6th, 2010 [from/via/route] pennine way; Garrigill to Little Dun Fell [with] Don - Windy
Kevin Foster hiked on August 20th, 2018 [from/via/route] Great Dun Fell and Little Dun Fell [with] Henry. [weather] cloudy with rain. - Retracing my steps I bagged Little Dun Fell for the second time that day before descending to the col with Cross Fell beyond. Conditions brightened a bit and the mist appeared to lift slightly as I began my ascent of Cross Fell. The summit plateau was clear enough for me to see the large wind shelter cum cairn in the distance. However long distance views were still nonexistent unfortunately. Never mind I have been up here on a clear day when the views were amazing especially towards the Lakeland skyline. You win some you lose some as they say. Whilst having a very late lunch stop I met up with a woman from Milburn with two dogs who was walking to Haltwhistle to make her weekly appointment there to play quoits! She planned to bed down for the night at the mountain bothy nearby called Greg's hut. I got the impression that she usually drove to Haltwhistle each week but fancied walking there from her home this particular week. I hope she made it!
