Cold northerly wind. - Climbing steeply up Hindscarth Edge there were great birds-eye views of the cliffs of Honister Pass across the valley including the impressive 'via ferrata' which follows the old miners track up the steep incline. It was good to see that the summit cairn on Dale Head has been repaired & returned to its former glory which befits such a stunning view point!

Richard Marchant bagged on October 9th, 1988 [from/via/route] We parked at the NT car park at the base of Cat Bells. This walk was basically the Newlands Round although we didn't take in Hindscarth. We started with the ascent of Cat Bells & basically followed the ridge up to High Spy then dipped down before ascending Dale Head. With my Mum being a bit tired we missed Hindscarth out & carried on along the ridge to Robinson & then cut down in to the Newlands valley & worked out way back to the car. Another lovely memory for me. [with] Mum & Dad [weather] A fine day with no wind & wall to wall sunshine - Carried out the Newlands round horseshoe with my Mum & was taken during a weeks holiday in the Lakes with Mum & my Dad although I just went out walking up the mountains with my Mum as my Dad was not fit enough to join us. We stopped at a self catering cottage at Dockray. Probably the last holiday I had away from Dorset with my Mum & Dad,
