Fellow go4awalkers who have already walked, climbed, summited & bagged Lonscale Fell
Erin Ryan walked up on June 27th, 2021 [from/via/route] Car Park at bottom of Skiddaw motorway
Richard Fulcher climbed on July 31st, 2021 [from/via/route] Jen dropped me at the Gale Road car park & I started off along the Cumbria Way around Lonscale Fell. I ascended up on the edge of Lonscale Crags to Lonscale Fell & then walked over Jenkin Hill to Little Man. From there I joined the main route up to Skiddaw & over the other side to Bakestall. I descended via Birkett Edge & then followed the Cumbria Way route down to Peter House Farm. I walked down the road to Walk Mill Bridge where Jen picked me up. [weather] Low cloud but otherwise reasonable weather. - The initial climb up Lonscale was tough (unfit!) but the other climbs were separated by easier sections.
Christine Shepherd bagged on May 12th, 2008 [from/via/route] From Millbeck using walk c321 Climbed again using walk c186 on 30.06.21 with Jenny. [with] On my own [weather] Sunny
Chris Sheard hiked on June 28th, 2021 [from/via/route] Up from carpark via contour to right [with] George [weather] Warm, slight winds a bit oppressive in calm valleys - Nice mountain, seemed not more than a steep face until top when it the area showed itself with quite impressive views - Best way up
Peter Hanney summited on November 23rd, 2020 [from/via/route] Whit Beck [with] Dianne and the Whiteheads [weather] Strong winds & then rain started on descent towards Little Man
Kevin Foster conquered on March 30th, 2021 [from/via/route] Latrigg car park. [with] By myself. [weather] Sunny to start then ascending into cloud. Cloud inversion on the top of Skiddaw which was cloud free. - The path I took from Latrigg car park heading towards Blencathra before turning the corner for Skiddaw House was fairly level & very pleasant until the corner was reached. However the next section following the fence line on the left & Lonscale crags on the right was no nonsense straight up. Very direct & very steep. The cloud base was entered about half way up & remained until the summit ridge of Skiddaw was reached. Unfortunately the views from the top of Lonscale Crag & the summit of Lonscale Fell itself were non existent so there didn't seem much point in hanging about.
