Paul Macey walked up on June 16th, 2019 [with] Luke Macey [weather] Windy light rain
Kevin Foster climbed on May 17th, 2019 [from/via/route] Wether Hill. [with] Henry. [weather] Sunny and hot to begin with becoming cloudier later on with a cold northerly breeze. - A notable trig point now marks the top of Loadpot Hill. This must have been added since Wainwright wrote his books. Following on, over the summit, the track makes a gentle descent to Loadpot hole then branches left. A faint sheep trod just before reaching Bonscale Pike to the left drops steeply to the hamlet of Mellguards. Although direct it's torture on the calves and knees so carry a pair of trekking poles if you're planning to descend by this route.
