Christine Shepherd walked up on February 9th, 2008 [with] Friends Gary and Jonathan [weather] Very cold but bright - I have bagged this fell on two other occasions on my own using walks c204 and c251 Climbed again with Jenny on 7.9.2019.
Andrew Johnson climbed on October 29th, 2019 [from/via/route] Kentmere [with] Ted [weather] Sunny
Richard Marchant bagged on January 2nd, 1999 [from/via/route] A day walk with my good friend Ray collins. We met at Mardale Head car park top of Haweswater. The route took us up by Gatesgarth Beck to Gatesgarth Pass, then turned right and followed the route up to Harter Fell. We then carried on to Mardale Ill Bell then on to High Street, Rampsgill Head then to Kidsty Pike and then descended to Haweswater and back round to Mardale Head Car Park. [with] Ray Collins [weather] From what I can remember it was a fine day.
Kevin Foster hiked on April 28th, 2019 [from/via/route] Rough crag via Small water and Nan bield pass. [with] Henry. [weather] Clouds but with sunny breaks and clear visibility. Very warm when the sun was out. - This is a very tough ascent route via Blea water and Small water over rough, boggy and very often path less terrain. In hindsight probably would've been better to have left Rough Crag for a separate day and tackled Harter Fell by the more conventional route from High Street over Mardale Ill Bell.
Elaine Evans summited on April 8th, 2019 [from/via/route] From Mardale Head, up to High Street via Blea Water, across to Mardale Ill Bell, down to Nan Bield Pass, up to Harter Fell, retraced our steps to Nan Bield then descended via Small Water. [with] Sue and Christine [weather] Dry but low cloud on tops. - Success at second attempt - previously had to turn back due to strong gusts of wind. Visibility restricted due to low cloud, otherwise a very good day. Lunch with a view at shelter at Nan Bield.
Wayne Baxter conquered on April 8th, 2019 [from/via/route] Kentmere Horseshoe, 7 peaks. Yoke, III Bell, Froswick, Mardale II Bell, Harter Bell, Kentmere Pike & Shipman Knotts. [with] Sue [weather] Sunny to start the walk but low cloudy for Mardale peak - What a great walk
