Clare Tait walked up on July 27th, 2021 [from/via/route] From Armboth car park taking in High Tove, High Seat, Bleaberry Fell and Raven Crag [with] Charlie [weather] Warm, overcast. Some gaps in the cloud. - No 65- 69 Wainwrights and will log all together. As the weather had remained warm there was no issue with bog! Just soft walking. A new path of huge stone blocks solved the issue around High Seat where the bog had obviously been boggiest. A good walk and five Wainwrights bagged.

Nick Dobson climbed on June 19th, 2021 [from/via/route] Armboth car park Thirlmere [with] Margaret. Ralph & Kate [weather] Another hot sunny day with excellent visibility - With Kate here today we decided to do the smallest of the 36 remaining Wainwrights as this was just her 9th completed. They include the Old Man of Coniston & Helvellyn of which she has down twice via both Striding Edge & Swirrell Edge. We have just 35 to go now.

Complicated and difficult walk across woods and up to Raven Crag via a huge ravine, a high ladder stile and along a track. Back down to Thirlmere & back to the car.
