Kevin Foster summited on November 27th, 2020 [from/via/route] High Side. [with] Henry. [weather] Cloudy. - By starting in the small lay-by near High Side farm it gives you a superb approach to the Ullock Pike ridge walking up the secluded valley of Southerndale. Ullock Pike itself has a false summit when seen from below. the true summit is only seen when the false one has been reached. After this the gradient eases & you reach the slender top of Long Side edge after a matter of minutes. There are superb aerial views of Bassenthwaite Lake for most of the climb along the long ridge. Fantastic!
