Sarah Culverhouse walked up on September 18th, 2020 [from/via/route] Glenridding [weather] glorious sunshine
Sarah Hamer climbed on August 20th, 2020 [from/via/route] Glenridding - parked up and took on Nethermost Pike, Dollywaggon Pike and Birkhouse Moor - Striding Edge - near meltdown [with] Chris Hamer, David May and Maddie [weather] Started off sunny and 17 degrees - wind got up and on the top it was really blowing, a little shower but once away from the tops the wind dies down - thank goodness - My memory of Striding Edge must have been buried as this was the 3rd time of taking it on. A good one to start off on - the others surely can only be easier!!

Kevin Foster hiked on October 24th, 2019 [from/via/route] Patterdale [with] By myself. [weather] Blue skies (cloud developing later on Striding Edge and Helvellyn). - The only other person I saw the rest of the day was a female fell runner who overtook me on the final pull to this top. The summit cairn, like the previous one, is situated on a small promontory east of the main path and probably gets overlooked by most people who head to or from Helvellyn which is a pity because the views are worth the slight effort it takes to reach it. Superb side on view of St Sunday Crag across the valley.
