Clare Tait hiked Graystones on October 25th, 2023 [from/via/route] Parked in a carpark on the Whinlatter pass road. Saw the wall up Graystones from the base & was rather concerned by the steepness. Began through the forest & followed the path to halfway up the wall. There are forestry operations going on. The ascent was extremely steep & I found it difficult (I'm not new to hill walking) I would not choose that route again. In addition on the return the bridge over one off the streams is out. I think I'd just go as an out & back from Lords Seat & Whinlatter visitor Centre if I knew better but hindsight is a wonderful thing. [with] Charlie [weather] Cloud & damp. - Our no 89 Wainwright & to be fair maybe the one that stops me doing any more.

Christine Shepherd summited Graystones on July 31st, 2009 [from/via/route] Walked from Whinlatter Forest Park using walk c183. Climbed this again on 12.6.21 using the same route & again on 24.07.23. [with] On my own [weather] Cloudy, starting to rain. - I should have been going on to Whinlatter from here but the rain got heavier & as I had had a good day's walking I made my way down to the carpark & called it a day.

We stopped & had a coffee & a protein bar. Tess had a chewy sick & then onto Broom Fell. Nice run across the moor.See below [with] Tess (Jack Russell) [weather] Windy day with high cloud & sunny intervals. - We dropped down from Broom & then climbed upto Greystones, skipping over a couple of other bumps on the way.
