Jamie Bryan walked up on July 14th, 2019 [weather] Sunny

Richard Marchant climbed 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 and 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 and carried on along the ridge to Robinson and then cut down in to the Newlands valley and worked out way back to the car. Another lovely memory for me. [with] Mum & Dad [weather] A fine day with no wind and wall to wall sunshine - Carried out the Newlands round horseshoe with my Mum and was taken during a weeks holiday in the Lakes with Mum and 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 and Dad,
