David Hughes climbed on November 9th, 2021 [from/via/route] Thirlmere walk with DG [with] DG [weather] raining with wet conditions

Tim Winn bagged on October 1st, 2021 [from/via/route] Armboth [with] Barry, Roger, Paul, Andy and Dave [weather] Mixed

Richard Marchant hiked on September 7th, 2021 [from/via/route] Route taken as per map C318, I Started from Armboth car park & then walked through Fishercrag Plantation up on to Armboth Fell then traversed across to High Tove followed by High Seat where I had a spot of lunch then proceeded on to Bleaberry after which I back tracked & made my back down south of Iron Crag & picked up a forest track which led me to a path coming off to ascend Raven Crag. Last one for the day so it was back down the path to the road on the West side of Thirlmere & that was followed back to the car park. [with] Just myself [weather] Dry & fine weather. - Another simply awesome morning out in the Lakes

Paul Macey summited on August 14th, 2021 [from/via/route] C318 [weather] Sunny intervals

Andrew Flynn conquered on August 1st, 2009 [from/via/route] Corridor route [with] Emma

Clare Tait scaled on July 27th, 2021 [from/via/route] From Armboth car park taking in High Tove, High Seat, Bleaberry Fell & Raven Crag [with] Charlie [weather] Warm, overcast. Some gaps in the cloud. - No 65- 69 Wainwrights & will log all together. As the weather had remained warm there was no issue with bog! Just soft walking. A new path of huge stone blocks solved the issue around High Seat where the bog had obviously been boggiest. A good walk & five Wainwrights bagged.

Mark Hazelton walked up on July 4th, 2021 [from/via/route] Walked up from Watendlath CP & bagged High Tove & High Seat. [with] Family and Pepper [weather] Sunny & humid then got absolutely drenched - Car park is a great find also took in Ashness Bridge & Surprise View

Richard Beardsley climbed on July 1st, 2021 [from/via/route] Dropped off & started route at 0800 hrs from Ashness Bridge [with] Myself. [weather] Slightly overcast but sun broke through eventually. Warm pleasant day. - Route from Ashness Bridge was straight forward. Started from the right side of the Bark House mountain hut, (public footpath signpost just visible). Followed the path quite easily & where it meets the gill turned right onto an old but well made stone pitched path that climbs steeply up the fellside to the Dodd. The summit trig point of High Seat eventually comes into view. Having summited High Seat the recently made stone path to High Tove is easily located & leads directly to its top. Armboth Fell was next & again that was easily sighted from High Tove. A direct route was taken over comfortable ground which could be quite boggy in wet weather. After Armboth I returned to High Tove passed through the gate & descended along the track to Watendlath. It was then a 5 mile walk along the road to Keswick & catch the bus to Carlisle. I arrived home at 1500hrs. A thoroughly enjoyable day.

Nick Dobson bagged on June 12th, 2021 [from/via/route] National trust car park in Watendlath almost up to High Tove, turning left at the second gate following the fence along to the newly constructed slate slab path through the boggy areas, & then onto High Seat. [with] Margaret & Ralph [weather] Another hot & sunny day today. so with Ralph 11 years now the plan was to do just High Seat, however once we reached the summit there was only one way he was heading, North to Bleaberry Fell - Our 4th Wainwright walk this year completing number 177 & 178 of the 214. (38 more to go) Coffee & cake at the N T cafe then back to the caravan.
