Other walkers who hiked, climbed, bagged and summited Outerside Fellow go4awalkers who have already walked, climbed, summited & bagged Outerside

Christine Shepherd walked up Outerside on June 2nd, 2010 [from/via/route] Walked from Braithwaite using walk c299 Repeated this walk again on 15.09.2021 Enjoyed a shorter walk on 12.11.22 over Barrow & Outerside then back to Braithwaite over Stile End. [with] On my own [weather] Very hot & sunny

Richard Fulcher climbed Outerside on September 29th, 2022 [from/via/route] Parked in the small quarry car park on the left near the start of the Whinlatter Pass after passing through Braithwaite. The path up to Grisedale Pike leaves from this car park & wends up & around the hills up to the peak - a fairly continuous climb with the craggiest part near the top. From Grisedale we headed across to Hobcarton Crag, veering off to the left down to Coledale Hause & then approached Crag Hill from the back near Wandope Moss. From Crag Hill we worked our way down & across to Sail the along the ridge to Scar Crags & Causey Pike. We reversed from CP & traversed across to the main path at High Moss. I then climbed up Outerside & slipped & slid down the wet rocks to Low Moss (very tricky after rain) & eventually met up with Jen at Barrow Door. I declined Barrow as I'd had enough! One for another day! We returned down the easy path that gently slopes down the side of Barrow. [with] Jen [weather] Sunshine & showers, occasional gusts of wind. - A tiring but rewarding walk.

Claire Kirk bagged Outerside on August 28th, 2022 [from/via/route] Braithwaite [with] Sam [weather] Warm, clear day

Lovely walk down. Purple heather was gorgeous today

(Barrow, Stile End, Outerside, Sail, Scar Crags & Causey Pike). [with] Myself. [weather] Warm & sunny day. A short spell of low cloud around Sail. - A shorter Coledale Round starting at Braithwaite. An accurate route description which was followed. The only deviation was to include Sail on the easy to follow zig - zag path from the col between Sail & Scar Crags. The steep descent from Causey Pike was interesting so easy does it is the best way. Time took 5 & 1/2 hrs.

Richard Marchant climbed Outerside on October 3rd, 1993 [from/via/route] We parked at the car park just before the visitors centre up in Whinlatter Pass. The walk was basically Coledale Round starting with a walk through the Hospital Plantation on to the ridge of Sleet How & the ascent of Grisedale Pike then on to Hopegill Head-Sand Hill down to Coledale Hause followed then by the ascent of Crag Hill (Eel Crag) to Sail & then descended to Outerside missing out on Causey Pike due to Marlene shattered as it had been a long day for her, so then to Stile End & down into Braithwaite & back up the road to the car. That trek up the road seem to go on for ever & was a bad move. [with] Marlene & Alan Harker [weather] A fine day with no wind & wall to wall sunshine - Carried out the Coledale Round with Marlene & Alan Harker & the memorable thing we still laugh about today was the the pubs didn't open all day then & when we got into Braithwaite everything was closed & Marlene was so looking forward to a half of Shandy.
