Margaret Richards walked up on October 3rd, 2019 [from/via/route] From Buttertubs pass taking in Great Shunner Fell [with] Don [weather] Dry and mainly cloudy, but very cold. good views - Boggy Liked the lovely seat on Lovely Seat!
David Congreave climbed on April 7th, 2018 [from/via/route] Hawes [weather] Wet, wet, wet.
Kevin Foster bagged on July 11th, 2017 [from/via/route] Great Shunner Fell [with] By myself (and Henry my Labrador) [weather] Cloudy (light rain). Tops clearing out by mid afternoon. - Although route finding wasn't a problem off Great Shunner Fell to the road summit at Buttertubs pass (the cloud on the top had cleared off by now), the walking was very rough across bog and heather moor. The steep slog alongside the fence to the summit of Lovely Seat was rewarded by the extensive views and having the top to myself (and a few hungry sheep). In descent I headed for the prominent cairn on the escarpment overlooking the road summit and then took the best line I could through more grass and bog to High and Low Midstones before eventually reaching the road. At High Shaw I turned down the lane and entered the wooded confines of the beck that fed Hardraw Force which eventually returned me to my starting point. As I hadn't paid to get in I thought it only right to buy a pint of TT's Landlord at The Green Dragon to make amends.
