Bay Wan walked up on October 12th, 2021 [from/via/route] Parked at the village hall car park in Grasmere. Drizzle for most of the ridge but we almost missed Heron Pike as the 'path' up there was none existent so we ended up walking up the side of the hill on grass - tougher than expected! Hit Great Rigg & Descended via Stone Arthur [with] Cocoa dog - 10 yrs + Paul Harper [weather] Drizzle, cloudy on top

Carl Tillotson climbed on August 28th, 2021 [from/via/route] Fairfield Horseshoe [with] June [weather] Sunny, little wind, high level cloud - Went down the bad step, not bad in the end, lol.

John Bryers climbed on July 8th, 2020 [from/via/route] Used route C226.pdf. Parked on Dunmail Raise lower layby & walked down road to Mill Bridge. Due to erosion sign posts took me on the higher route on the Coast to Coast path, thus missing turn at the 2 footbridges. Walked direct to Grisedale Hause & turned left up to top of Seat Sandal. Back to Grisedale Hause & up zig-zag path to summit of Fairfield. Did not find trig point even with good visibility - Has it been removed? Easy onward route to Great Rigg. Continued along ridge to Stone Arthur. Easy route on to Heron Pike (Lost paper print out of map! Did not continue to Nab Scar!! Dropped to Alcock Tarn & back down to Grasmere road & back to car). PS Climbed Nab Scar & Heron Pike again on 18th July with others. [with] With Mya my faithful 13 year old Patterdale Terrier. [weather] Cloudy with some sun. Cooler on the tops. - Lots of walkers on a Wednesday due to covid-19 still about. Layby before Travellers Rest full! Walked again with The Gray Family & Jazz 18th July 20 - See Nab Scar bagging.

Andy Buxton bagged on September 27th, 1997 [from/via/route] From Ambleside as start of Fairfield Horseshoe (Low Pike, High Pike, Dove Crag, Hart Crag, Fairfield, Great Rigg, Heron Pike, Nab Scar) [with] Dan [weather] Cool, clear day, but windy. - Enjoyable route
