Kevin Foster walked up on March 4th, 2020 [from/via/route] Hobcarton End. [with] Henry. [weather] Cloudy with light snow showers. - This was what turned out to be a fairly easy 500 foot ascent over grass to the summit of Grisedale Pike. I've done this top countless times and the view never ceases to thrill me. Only the second time via Hobcarton End though. I've usually done it from Braithwaite on the classic Coledale Round.

Simon Boddy climbed on September 16th, 2019 [from/via/route] Crummock [with] HF Holidays [weather] Sunny and clear

Richard Marchant bagged on October 3rd, 1993 [from/via/route] We parked at the car park just before the visitors centre up in Whinlatter Pass. The walk was basically Coledale Round starting with a walk through the Hospital Plantation on to the ridge of Sleet How and the ascent of Grisedale Pike then on to Hopegill Head-Sand Hill down to Coledale Hause followed then by the ascent of Crag Hill (Eel Crag) to Sail and then descended to Outerside missing out on Causey Pike due to Marlene shattered as it had been a long day for her, so then to Stile End and down into Braithwaite and back up the road to the car. That trek up the road seem to go on for ever and was a bad move. [with] Marlene & Alan Harker [weather] A fine day with no wind and wall to wall sunshine - Carried out the Coledale Round with Marlene and Alan Harker and the memorable thing we still laugh about today was the the pubs didn't open all day then and when we got into Braithwaite everything was closed and Marlene was so looking forward to a half of Shandy.

Dave Eyes hiked on June 17th, 2019 [from/via/route] Parked at Lanthwaite farm layby on the road to Buttermere. Crossed the road and headed up Whiteside. Onwards from Whiteside to Hopegill Head and then further on to the top of Grisedale Pike. The return journey took us via the top of Grasmoor and we descended via Lad How to the road and walked back to the car. [with] Christine Eyes [weather] good visibility but very windy once up high.

Stephen Reader summited on July 7th, 2019 [from/via/route] Peak 10 out of 10 on Coledale 10 Peak challenge. We did it! [with] Mountain Walks [weather] Mixture of cloud and sunshine

Craig Steeland conquered on June 29th, 2019 [from/via/route] From Langthwaite [with] With Sue [weather] Partly cloudy, warm and dry apart from a few patches of light rain

Richard Beardsley scaled on July 3rd, 2019 [from/via/route] Walked route C169. Commenced walk at 0945hrs. and arrived back at the car park at 1415hrs. (£8 to park). [with] Gillian. [weather] Beautiful sunny day, with a slight breeze. Ideal for walking. - Fantastic views once height gained. Not as hard as first thought. Thoroughly enjoyable day.

Andrew Johnson walked up on February 26th, 2019 [from/via/route] Braithwaite [with] Ted [weather] Clear and very warm (for February) - Great views

Andy James climbed on April 4th, 2018 [from/via/route] Braithwaite [with] Suzie James

Bay Wan bagged on August 2nd, 2018 [from/via/route] Whiteside, Hopegill Head and Grisedale Pike and return through the valley bypassing Force Crag Mine [with] Cocoa dog - 7 yrs old [weather] Cloudy with sunny intervals. 20 degrees - Waaaaay too much scrambling, scree, ridges and one of the shitest pathways in the valley. Went round in circles near the end cos it wasn't obvious where the path had gone! This walk is doable but challenging and not for the faint hearted!
