Caroline Winter bagged on October 19th, 2018 [from/via/route] Hardraw [with] Shirley [weather] Good views and sunny,westerly wind, great visibity - Parked opposite PW and a steady walk to the top. Shirley having a bad time with her boots and heels blistering, so there and back took us 5 hrs, but in no rush and still in time to visit the cheese factory in Hawes.
Andy Jakob hiked during August, 1985 [from/via/route] Pennine Way north to south - and again on April 21st 2018 in fantastic sunshine after an extended winter of snow and recent heavy rain. Amazind day with AFWC

Stephen Eddy conquered on August 26th, 2017 [from/via/route] Hawes, whilst completing James Herriott way [with] Paula Eddy, Martin Bayliss, Tracey Bayliss [weather] cloud clearing
Kevin Foster scaled on July 11th, 2017 [from/via/route] Hardraw [with] By myself (and Henry my Labrador) [weather] Cloudy (light rain). Tops clearing out by mid afternoon - I set off along the Pennine Way from Hardraw later than planned in the morning as I'd originally driven to Hubberholme in Wharfedale to do Yockenthwaite Moor and Birks Fell. The weather (which was heavy rain at the time) put paid to that idea, so I decided to drive to Hawes with the intention of driving home from there if the weather didn't improve. Things looked more promising in Wensleydale so I made a snap decision to bag Great Shunner Fell (I figured if the summit was still in cloud at least route finding would be simple). The top was in cloud but only the last 100 metres or so. Rather annoyingly it had cleared out completely by the time I reached the Buttertubs road summit.
