    Craig Steeland bagged Lingmell on September 1st, 2017 [from/via/route] From National Trust car park at the head of Wasdale [with] Sue [weather] Partly cloudy and warm with light winds - A long, tough walk with an unwelcome boggy section at the end

    Richard Fulcher scaled Lingmell on May 3rd, 2017 [from/via/route] Wasdale Head [with] Jen [weather] Sunny, clear blue sky, very windy with gale force gusts - The path up from Wasdale Head was well marked & firm under foot. I went up Lingmell whilst Jen waited in the col shielding herself from the wind. We both then slowly hiked up to the top of Scafell Pike, getting blown off course every few steps by a strong gust of wind. Trying getting up and down. About 10 to 20 people at the top. We abandoned the idea of walking to Great End and back by Sty Head and just returned via the main path to the Wasdale Head Inn.

    Christine Shepherd walked up Lingmell on September 1st, 2010 [from/via/route] Wasdale [with] On my own [weather] Very hot. - I nearly bagged this on 26.4.08. The conditions were dreadful; driving wind and heavy rain. I reached what I thought was the summit cairn and came down. It was only later that I realised I had only been at a large cairn a couple of hundred metres from the actual summit.

    Mark Davidson has climbed Lingmell [with] Theresa [weather] Good as far as I can remember - Can't remember the date but would have been the late 1990's

    Nick Dobson bagged Lingmell on September 17th, 2016 [from/via/route] Scafell Pike on return to Seathwaite farm via corridor route [with] Margaret & Ralph [weather] hot & sunny - originally planned to do just Scafell Pike, however a short detour on return bagged my 77th Wainwright, with Ralph
