Kevin Foster walked up on March 16th, 2020 [from/via/route] Robinson. [with] Henry. [weather] Sunny with broken cloud. Cold northerly wind. - Almost a twin of Robinson. Hindscarth is linked to Robinson by Littledale Edge a steep stony ridge with excellent views down into the Honister Pass. At the lowest point a path cuts the corner directly for the summit cairn. If stopping here for lunch better to head a few yards down the ridge to the larger wind shelter which is also a better viewpoint northwards anyway.
