Alan Pritchard climbed on June 19th, 2008 [with] Solo [weather] Good - Went on walking holiday - also have done the 3 peaks challenge once. Also the Yorkshire 3 peaks in 8hours..πŸšΆβ€β™‚οΈπŸ˜ŽπŸ‘Œ

Colin Egan summited on November 15th, 2018 [from/via/route] Ascent from Horton in Ribblesdale, via 3 Peak route, descent via Horton Moor back to start. [with] My wife Faith [weather] Fine. - A fantastic half day walk on my wife's birthday

Kevin Foster climbed on July 22nd, 2017 [from/via/route] Dale Head Farm, Silverdale road [with] By myself [weather] Rain to start, low cloud but then tops clearing and hot and sunny. - Disappointed to have no view from the summit and a coach load of walkers already at the trig point. The climb through the two bands of rock was quite exhilarating though. PYG is a very fine mountain and a worthy member of the Yorkshire 3 Peaks club. I decided to not hang about and pushed on for Plover Hill leaving the crowds behind.

Andy Jakob bagged during August, 1985 [from/via/route] Pennine Way north to south - climbed this more than once
