Claire Kirk walked up on July 18th, 2020 [from/via/route] Cow Bridge car park [with] Phil [weather] Dull at first, sunny later.

Andrew Johnson climbed on November 19th, 2019 [from/via/route] Hartsop [weather] Beautiful day, clear skies.

Nick Dobson bagged on October 28th, 2019 [from/via/route] Mardale Head [with] Margaret & Ralph [weather] cold but dry and sunny day - followed ridge onto Rampsgill Head

Robin Thorne hiked during May, 2018 [from/via/route] Coast to Coast Walk [with] Jon Thorne [weather] Sunny

John Bryers has summited [from/via/route] Walked from St. Peter's church up front of Bonscale Pike, Arthur's Pike, Loadpot Hill, Wether Hill, High Raise, Kidsty Pike, Rampsgill Head, Rest Dodd and The Nab dropping back into Bannerdale and road back to church. [with] With Mya my faithful 12 year old Patterdale Terrier. [weather] Weather sunny to start, slight wind on ridges with light rain at times ending with some warm sunshine.

Richard Marchant conquered during July, 1988 [from/via/route] This was a two week trip Whilst walking the Coast to Coast footpath from St Bees to Robin Hoods Bay and this particular day I camped overnight next to Angle Tarn. The next day I took in the Wainwrights of Angletarn Crag, The Knott, Rampsgill Head, Kidsty Pike and descended to Haweswater and merrily made my way along on the C2C walk where I met my good friend Ray Collins from Sunderland and we are still walking together most of the time to this day. [with] On my own for this trip [weather] Mainly fine weather for the two weeks - It was on this trip I met my life long good friend Ray Collins from Sunderland

Kevin Foster scaled on May 17th, 2019 [from/via/route] Rampsgill Head [with] Henry. [weather] Sunny and hot to begin with becoming cloudier later in the day with a cold northerly breeze. - After Rampsgill Head the next two tops come in rapid succession with minimal effort. First Kidsty Pike which is just a short stroll across grass and must only just qualify as a separate top because the height gain from the col doesn't feel anything like 50 feet. In fact, after checking my Wainwright book, there appears to be only a height gain of 35 feet from the col with Ramspgill Head. Yet Kidsty Pike qualifies and The Knott doesn't. Who decides these things? Anyway whatever, the birds eye view of Riggindale from the small cairn perched above steep crags is worthy of any mountain.

Elaine Evans walked up on October 30th, 2018 [from/via/route] From Hartsop via Hayeswater Gill to filter house and then the summit of The Knott, continued to Rampsgill Head, High Raise and Kidsty Pike, returned to Hayeswater and back to Hartsop via Hayeswater Gill. [with] Sue, Christine and Mark [weather] Fog, fog and more fog - though it did clear briefly on Kidsty Pike! Occasional glimpse of sunshine. Cold but dry. - Four peaks in a very short time. Shame we missed out on the views again - maybe next time!

Christina Lander climbed on June 7th, 2018 [from/via/route] Martindale - Steel Knotts - High Raise - Kidsty Pike - Rampsgill Head - The Knott - Rest Dodd - Angletarn Pikes - Beda Fell - Martindale [with] Dick [weather] A perfect sunny day on the fells

Peter Fielding bagged on November 11th, 2017 [from/via/route] from hawes water. nice cold day but boggy underfoot for most of the way - one of seven wainwrights climbed today on walk c251 [with] Peter and Ruth [weather] good - very long walk including kidsty pike and harter fell - boggy!
