Christine Shepherd walked up on January 28th, 2007 [from/via/route] I walked from the village of Hartsop [with] On my own [weather] Cold, clear but very, very windy - This was an exciting walk. There was snow and ice on the fells but the real challenge came from the wind. Myself and other walkers that I met were finding it difficult to stand upright. I have visited this peak three times since; 12.4.07, 9.2.08 and in glorious sunshine 24.5.10. Climbed again with jenny from Mardale Head 7.9.19

Kevin Foster summited on April 28th, 2019 [from/via/route] Continuation of Kentmere Round from Froswick. [with] Henry. [weather] Clouds but with sunny breaks and clear visibility. Very warm when the sun was out. - As you ascend from the col towards the prominent cairn of Thornthwaite Crag , the main path splits into three. Take the fainter middle path over the slight rise to a boggy depression. Could be confusing in mist. Once the wall is joined just follow it to the broad grassy summit of High Street. The views are great, particularly of the Helvellyn- Fairfield range.
