Christine Shepherd walked up on August 13th, 2010 [from/via/route] Walked from Scaly Moss using walk c340 Climbed again 31.8.20 using the same walk.Disconcerting to see so few trees after the initial copse; made this a very different walk than 10 years ago. [with] On my own [weather] Damp and overcast but stayed clear enough to see the views. - In spite of Wainwright saying that you are unlikely to meet anyone on this fell, I met two other peak baggers. One of these turned out to be the brother of a friend from Leeds! It is a small world.

Wayne Baxter climbed on August 13th, 2020 [from/via/route] From Scaly Moss to Grike, look for Mask and follow to Crag Fell, down to black pot and onto Whoap and finally to Lank Rigg. Return down hill to Red Gill turn left and follow path down hill to road. [with] Sue [weather] Cloudy but hot

Nick Dobson bagged on July 24th, 2020 [from/via/route] Scaly Moss on the Cold Fell road, taking the path below Grike and Crag Fell continuing over Whoap before ascending to the summit. Returned via the valley of Whoap Beck around Blakely Raise to the road and back to the car. [with] Margaret and Ralph [weather] Bright sunny clear day. - That's 164 completed now, just 50 to go.
