I used Fleetwith Edge straight up & down; superb! [with] Jenny [weather] Glorious sunshine - Had got very close to the summit the year before when I did the Via Ferrata at Honister but they wouldn't let us visit the actual summit.

Mark Smith hiked Fleetwith Pike on May 5th, 2009 [from/via/route] Buttermere [weather] hot & sunny

Richard Marchant summited Fleetwith Pike on August 26th, 2021 [from/via/route] Started from Gatesgarth car park & then walked along the East shore of Buttermere up to Haystacks. Then traversed across to Fleetwith Pike & descended Westward off Fleetwith Pike back down to Gatesgarth Carpark. Just a quick morning's walk but in sublime weather with fantastic view 360 degrees from both peaks [with] Just myself [weather] Dry & fine weather. - Simply awesome morning out

Richard Fulcher conquered Fleetwith Pike on July 10th, 2021 [from/via/route] Walked up from the NT car park at Honister Slate mine via the Bothy (which bothy?) to photograph the late evening light kissing the fells. Didn't quite work out that way as the heavens opened about 7pm & I got soaked to the skin. Had to hurriedly retreat back to the car. [weather] Sun, cloud, low cloud & then torrential rain!

Kevin Foster climbed Fleetwith Pike on May 14th, 2021 [from/via/route] Honister Pass (slate mine). [with] By myself. [weather] Low clouds down on tops gradually lifting. - Not the most obvious route to bag this mountain. A tough descent from Kirk Fell into Ennerdale & then back out again via the path alongside Loft Beck followed by a detour round Haystacks before climbing on a diagonal path from Dubs Quarry to the summit cairn of Fleetwith Pike. Great views down Buttermere made it all worth while though.
