Michael Nolan walked up on April 16th, 2021 [from/via/route] Lorton [with] Morag [weather] Brilliant bright day!

Claire Murray climbed on April 4th, 2021 [from/via/route] Coledale Horseshoe. Grisedale Pike, Hopegill Head, Crag Hill, Sail and Outerside [with] Vitor [weather] Awful! Started off sunny and hot but was 40mph winds at the top and complete cloud. Very windy and cold, much nicer at lower heights - Hard going to start with but a lovely easy to follow track. Would be much nicer on a day with better weather

Catherine Hill bagged on September 26th, 2020 [from/via/route] The top of Crummock Water over Whiteside East Top and Hopegill and, after Grassmoor, down to Buttermere via Whiteless Head. [with] Alone [weather] Dry but cloudy and v. windy.

Nick Christian hiked on September 18th, 2020 [from/via/route] Whiteside [with] Karen Brown [weather] Good Sunny

Caroline Winter summited on August 31st, 2020 [from/via/route] Lanthwaite Green car park, Whin Ben, Whiteside, Hopegill Head, Hobcarton Crag, Coledale Hause, Grasmoor, Liza Beck [with] Becky [weather] Very good views. Warm day 12 degrees on tops - Glorious walk. Heather in bloom and great views along ridge. One of the largest shelters on Grasmoor to enjoy lunch. Pretty waterfalls on descent

Richard Marshall conquered on August 6th, 2020 [from/via/route] From Crummock Water [with] Bo and Dave Jones [weather] Hot, Sunny/Cloudy little bit of drizzle for 20 mins

Claire Kirk scaled on July 11th, 2020 [from/via/route] Braithwaite [with] Phil [weather] Low cloud and drizzly to start, sun came out in the afternoon

Kevin Foster walked up on May 20th, 2020 [from/via/route] Whiteside East Top (Crummock). [with] By myself. [weather] Very sunny and very hot. - The continuing rocky ridge looks daunting and steep but is actually not that difficult as it climbs to the summit of Hopegill Head. I'd recommend keeping right on the ridge itself rather than following the lower path as the scrambling is quite easy and more fun!

Simon Boddy climbed on September 16th, 2019 [from/via/route] Crummock [with] HF Holidays [weather] Sunny and clear

Richard Marchant bagged on October 3rd, 1993 [from/via/route] We parked at the car park just before the visitors centre up in Whinlatter Pass. The walk was basically Coledale Round starting with a walk through the Hospital Plantation on to the ridge of Sleet How and the ascent of Grisedale Pike then on to Hopegill Head-Sand Hill down to Coledale Hause followed then by the ascent of Crag Hill (Eel Crag) to Sail and then descended to Outerside missing out on Causey Pike due to Marlene shattered as it had been a long day for her, so then to Stile End and down into Braithwaite and back up the road to the car. That trek up the road seem to go on for ever and was a bad move. [with] Marlene & Alan Harker [weather] A fine day with no wind and wall to wall sunshine - Carried out the Coledale Round with Marlene and Alan Harker and the memorable thing we still laugh about today was the the pubs didn't open all day then and when we got into Braithwaite everything was closed and Marlene was so looking forward to a half of Shandy.
