Other walkers who hiked, climbed, bagged and summited High Stile Fellow go4awalkers who have already walked, climbed, summited & bagged High Stile

Christine Shepherd walked up on May 1st, 2003 [from/via/route] I climbed this from Buttermere via Red Pike [with] On my own [weather] Lovely spring weather - Great views. Climbed this again when I led a group from St George's Church Leeds in July 04. Had another brilliant walk over the Buttermere fells 29.8.17.

Stephen Batson climbed 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 bagged during May, 2018 [from/via/route] Coast to Coast Walk [with] Jon Thorne [weather] Sunny

Caroline Winter hiked 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 (Starling Dodd has a very odd twisted metal structure on its top and Great Borne is a pile of stones). 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.

Andrew Johnson summited on July 16th, 2019 [from/via/route] NT car park Buttermere, then to Crummock following the Frog Graham Leg 3 Route. [weather] Sunny weather

Richard Marshall conquered on June 23rd, 2019 [from/via/route] Ennerdale Red Pike [with] Bo [weather] Cloudy/sunny. Very warm.

Walked alongside water's edge back to carpark. [with] Sue and Christine [weather] Lovely day for walking, not too hot, a couple of light showers but mostly OK. - Really good, mostly enjoyable walk but did not like the descent from Red Pike at all! So pleased the rain didn't come in as forecast.

John Bryers bagged on August 16th, 2018 [from/via/route] Fourth of 7 Wainwrights today. Camped at Syke Farm, Buttermere.
