[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 summited 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 conquered 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 scaled 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.
