Margaret Richards walked up Cross Fell on September 6th, 2010 [from/via/route] pennine way; Garrigill to Little Dun Fell [with] Don - Windy

Margaret Richards walked up Cross Fell on August 20th, 2018 [from/via/route] Great Dun Fell and Little Dun Fell [with] Henry. [weather] cloudy with rain. - Retracing my steps back the way I'd come I bagged Little Dun Fell for the second time that day. Continuing towards Cross Fell my spirits were raised as conditions brightened a bit and the persistent low cloud threatened to lift. The summit plateau was clear enough to make out the huge summit wind shelter and trig point marking the top of the highest English mountain outside The Lake District still some way away. However the distant views were still nonexistent. Fortunately I have been up here on a fine day when the view towards the Lakeland skyline was amazing. I met a woman from Milburn with two dogs, whilst I was having a very late lunch stop, who was planning to sleep overnight at the nearby mountain bothy called Greg's Hut. She then planned to walk the following day to Haltwhistle to play quoits at the pub which she did every Tuesday evening (play quoits not the walking bit). I hope she made it. I did worry about her as I descended back to Garrigill that evening.

Kevin Foster climbed Cross Fell 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!
