Caroline Winter walked up on August 7th, 2020 [from/via/route] B6270 by Pennine Way sign, route east of bridle path across bog, Trig, nine standards stones, PW [with] Becky [weather] Warm with light Easterly wind - Nine Standards Rigg, before High Seat. Avoided this when walkng C2C 18 years ago, with our 3 month old, as flash floods and thunder and lightening. Nice walk in good conditions
Tony Deegan climbed on August 24th, 2019 [from/via/route] Kirkby Stephens [with] Si [weather] great weather
Margaret Richards bagged on August 8th, 2018 [from/via/route] c381 from Tailbridge Neck [with] Don [weather] wet windy and sunny
Kevin Foster hiked on November 25th, 2017 [from/via/route] Nateby-Keld road [with] Henry [weather] Winter conditions (snow and ice underfoot). Clear then clouded up later. - My car (not 4x4) was unable to get up the steep road to Keld from Nateby because of ice therefore I had to start at a lower point on the road which substantially increased the walk. Great views from the summit and some great photos of 'The Standards'.
Andy Jakob summited on April 21st, 2012 [from/via/route] from Kirby Stephen [with] AFWC [weather] Windy, rain, hailstones etc - Helicopter lift to Carlisle hospital with broken leg
David Congreave conquered on September 24th, 2016 [from/via/route] Tailbridge Neck [with] Lydia [weather] Cool and a little hazy, but mostly clear. - Far too boggy to be enjoyable. Save this walk for a frozen winter day or expect to do a lot of zig-zagging.
