Walked along bridleway towards Patterdale & veared upwards along a track to Boredale Hause. Turning right to Angletarn Pikes. Walked to top of each pike to make sure I'd completed the Wainright. Continued along easy paths East of tarn to Brock Crag. Continued along clear path to The Knott. Headed downhill towards Hayeswater dam, rising up directly on to ridge of Gray Crag. Joining ridge path to top. Returned down Northern ridge to car park. [with] With Mya my faithful 14 year old Patterdale Terrier.

Claire Murray hiked on April 11th, 2021 [from/via/route] Hartsop Dodd, Stony Cove Pike, Thornthwaite Crag & Gray Crag [with] Vitor and Rita [weather] Lovely with a little snow - Lovely walk, was nice & dry, lovely views & spot for lunch. Free little car park at the end of the lane

Andrew Johnson summited on October 8th, 2020 [from/via/route] Hartsop [with] Ted [weather] Blue skies, beautiful views

Andrew Douthwaite conquered on August 31st, 2020 [from/via/route] c231 [weather] Sunny spells - Good views, quite steep ups & downs

Richard Beardsley climbed on September 20th, 2019 [from/via/route] Route C231 from Hartsop. [with] Gillian. [weather] Clear, fine & a beautiful sunny day for late September. - Parked car at Cow Bridge car park. (donation into box). Commenced at 0945hrs. & stuck to the route apart from not visiting the top of Cauldale Head to take in the views. The good weather certainly brought out individual groups of walkers so we were not alone. Arrived back to the car at 1515hrs. After a thoroughly enjoyable day.

Kevin Foster bagged on May 28th, 2019 [from/via/route] Thornwaite Crag. [with] Henry. [weather] Sunny & hot becoming cloudier later on with a cold northerly breeze. - This was no more than a gentle descent on grass down an undulating ridge. The top of Gray Crag lies beyond the second col but before the wall that crosses the summit & is unmarked. Just a metre lower & beyond the cross wall is a large cairn which is generally recognised as the summit & has the better views. The views of Hayeswater & the valley of Pasture Beck on the descent are great. I also noticed a massive gully on the slopes of Brock Crag I think? which looked as if it would make a great scramble. One to investigate in future maybe?
