Stephen Batson bagged on November 16th, 2019 [from/via/route] Gatesgarth [with] Clare [weather] Grey sky, fog on the summits - This was a very hard climb to start, rocks were wet and slippy
Robin Thorne hiked during May, 2018 [from/via/route] Coast to Coast Walk [with] Jon Thorne [weather] Sunny
Caroline Winter conquered on August 27th, 2019 [from/via/route] Gatesgarth, Scarth Gap Pass, Seat, High Crag, High Stile, Red Pike, Starling Dodd, Great Borne, Steel Brow, Scales, The Fish at Buttermere, B5289 to CP [with] Becky [weather] 9.30 Start and already feeling hot and sticky on long climb up. No wind until late afternoon (SW), and great views of surrounding Fells. Cloud predicted on High Crag at 1pm, and cloud descended on leaving Great Borne. - Classic ridge walk with a plethora of views, not forthcoming on last visit here. Red scree peppering slopes of Red pike, so to descend further along after continuing the ridge to Starling Dodd and Great Borne. Also, saves climbing them from Ennerdale. Came down further West along a track, so needed to back Track to find NW route. Long walk out along slippery rocks and bracken. Diversion at scale Bridge, due to reconstruction. Missed last bus at 17.18 hrs, so ate a delicious trout dinner at The Fish, before walking the road-nearly as pleasant as the lake walk, and saved £25 plus on taxi fare.
