Other walkers who hiked, climbed, bagged and summited Froswick Fellow go4awalkers who have already walked, climbed, summited & bagged Froswick

Paul Roddam walked up Froswick on March 17th, 2024 [with] Barber [weather] Cloudy coming into sun

Sarah Moore climbed Froswick on February 24th, 2024 [from/via/route] c332 / The Hagg Gill Round from Troutbeck. Loads of parking options & the route was well defined. Only thing to watch for is the path down when on the ridge. Most continuing on from Froswick but I needed to go left - it's clear if you look for it! Nice to go along the path once down at the Gill / stream - the road / track would be easier if there was a hurry. [with] On my own [weather] February frost, but dry although low visibility for most of the walk - particularly once past Sallows until coming down from Froswick. Glad of layers today! - 10 months since I've been in The Lakes - & it was so so good to be back. Not as cold as I expected & the sun made an appearance but visibility was rubbish. Coming down from Froswick was lethal & I went full length twice - but very glad for the poles & nothing that the washing machine can't fix! (Disappointing given how clear it was later in the day & the next day!)

David Higginbottom bagged Froswick on February 9th, 2023 [from/via/route] Route 332 [with] Carolyn [weather] Good

Martyn Howarth hiked Froswick on August 15th, 2023 [from/via/route] From Kentmere Institute, as part of the Kentmere Horseshoe. [with] Tilly Howarth. [weather] Gorgeous August day, after some dreadful weather the days before! - Tough 14.5 mile walk - 3600ft of ascent! Brilliant effort by 14 yr old Tilly!

Richard Fulcher summited Froswick on April 18th, 2023 [from/via/route] No parking spaces in Kentmere! Parked off road (almost in a ditch, next to farm track). Set off up to the Garburn Pass, turning right at Garburn Nook & then walked up to Yoke. From Yoke we walked around the Kentmere Horseshoe & completed Ill Bell, Froswick, Mardale Ill Bell, Kentmere Pike & Shipman Knotts. We descended via an old shepherds path passing 3 derelict buildings (shepherds huts?) & then walked along the roads back to the car. 12.14 miles. [with] Jen [weather] Sunny, blue skies, very windy in exposed places.. gusts of 30 to 40 mph. Visibility was okay but hazy. - Tiring because of the distance & total ascent of 3,500 feet.

Ian Ashton conquered Froswick on April 7th, 2023 [with] Solo

Chris Faulkner scaled Froswick on March 13th, 2022 [from/via/route] Troutbeck [with] Michelle Chandler [weather] Bright & blustery. - Yoke with Ill Bell, Froswick & Thornthwaite Crag

Pete George walked up Froswick on May 3rd, 2022 [from/via/route] Troutbeck [with] Roco [weather] Overcast. Wet on tops

Christine Shepherd climbed Froswick during August, 2004 [from/via/route] Walked from Kentmere [with] Rebecca and Will [weather] Dull at first, heavy rain during the afternoon. - Climbed this again with my other daughter, Hannah on 24.2.11 in cold,misty conditions. 11 years later I finally did the full Kentmere Horseshoe solo on 6.3.22. This fell was the hardest due to the icy wind blowing in my face but it was a glorious day otherwise.

Geoff Hand bagged Froswick on November 10th, 2021 [from/via/route] c332 The Hagg Gill round from Troutbeck [with] Alone with Tess [weather] Warm & Dry - Set out from Church Bridge. Froswick is the fifth Wainwright on the walk. Could see Thornwaite Crag beacon where we had walked a couple of weeks before.
