Fellow go4awalkers who have already walked, climbed, summited & bagged Gragareth
Stella Nuttall walked up on October 17th, 2018 [from/via/route] From Lack House Farm. Ny 129 Gragateth, Great Coum Green Hill and Crag Hill. We didn't see anyone else on this walk until we saw firstly 3 people in orange boiler suits and then 2 men in yellow boiler suits approaching in the distance, quite surreal. They had all been pot holing and were making their way back to the farm. We had lunch by the waterfall in the sun. [with] Stella, Ann, Sally Christine and Kath. [weather] Misty to start with but when this lifted the views were awesome. - Very wet on the top between Gragareth and Great Coum.
Kevin Foster climbed on August 16th, 2017 [from/via/route] Yordas cave Kingsdale [with] Henry [weather] Sunny morning turning increasingly cloudy then light rain late in the walk - A fairly straightforward route up, with one very steep pull just after the sheepfold. The red rose county top of Lancashire gave me extensive views towards the west particularly Morecambe Bay and South Lakeland. I was pleasantly surprised by a FaceTime from my 5 year old grandson, wanting to know what I was up to, just as I reached the trig point. Perfect timing. Isn't technology wonderful?
Mark Davidson bagged on February 2nd, 2004 [with] Mike [weather] Bit of a dull February day but clear on the tops
Darren Mortimer hiked on December 20th, 2015 [from/via/route] Leck Farm House [with] Dermot Palmer [weather] Overcast and windy - The very last Yorkshire peak
Caroline Winter summited on October 3rd, 2015 [from/via/route] Yordas woods in Kingdale, summit, Great Coum, High Peak via Green Lane track, road by Long Gill. [with] Solo [weather] Foggy but lifted only to return before peak. Poor visibility 30 metres on higher ground rest of day - Met cavers start and end of day exploring Yordas. I ventured to large entrance in woods but with no torch and by myself- too spooky! I've actually enjoyed caving but alas yearn for the blue skies! Not much blue today, nor views I'd been promised. Trig point easy to spot
Tony Rogerson conquered on January 24th, 2010 [from/via/route] From Ireby [weather] Low cloud & mist - Snow under foot and drifts on hills
David Congreave scaled on January 20th, 2015 [from/via/route] From Ingleton [with] Jonah [weather] Cold but mainly dry. - Heavy snowfall on the peak made the walk from Gragareth to Green Hill pretty gruelling.
