Christine Shepherd walked up during May, 2004 [from/via/route] Walked from Buttermere [with] On my own [weather] Hot and sunny - I remember being covered by little black flies as I climbed to the summit. These had gone thank goodness when I led a group up here two months later. Visited the summit again on 14.8.10 on my way to Starling Dodd. Climbed the Buttermere fells again on 29.8.2017.

Stephen Batson climbed on November 16th, 2019 [from/via/route] Gatesgarth [with] Clare [weather] Grey sky, fog on the summits - This was a very hard climb to start, rocks were wet and slippy

Richard Marshall bagged on September 21st, 2019 [from/via/route] Mosedale horseshoe [with] Bo and Andy Pratt [weather] sunny. Very warm.

Robin Thorne hiked during May, 2018 [from/via/route] Coast to Coast Walk [with] Jon Thorne [weather] Sunny

Caroline Winter summited on August 27th, 2019 [from/via/route] Gatesgarth, Scarth Gap Pass, Seat, High Crag, High Stile, Red Pike, Starling Dodd, Great Borne, Steel Brow, Scales, The Fish at Buttermere, B5289 to CP [with] Becky [weather] 9.30 Start and already feeling hot and sticky on long climb up. No wind until late afternoon (SW), and great views of surrounding Fells. Cloud predicted on High Crag at 1pm, and cloud descended on leaving Great Borne. - Classic ridge walk with a plethora of views, not forthcoming on last visit here. Red scree peppering slopes of Red pike, so to descend further along after continuing the ridge to Starling Dodd and Great Borne (Starling Dodd has a very odd twisted metal structure on its top and Great Borne is a pile of stones). Also, saves climbing them from Ennerdale. Came down further West along a track, so needed to back Track to find NW route. Long walk out along slippery rocks and bracken. Diversion at scale Bridge, due to reconstruction. Missed last bus at 17.18 hrs, so ate a delicious trout dinner at The Fish, before walking the road-nearly as pleasant as the lake walk, and saved £25 plus on taxi fare.

Andrew Johnson conquered on July 16th, 2019 [from/via/route] NT car park Buttermere, then to Crummock following the Frog Graham Leg 3 Route. [weather] Sunny weather

Lucy Perchard scaled on November 19th, 2018 [from/via/route] From Buttermere up to Red Pike, High Stile and High Crag and back down via Gamlin end and Scarth Gap [with] Tony [weather] Clear blue sky but very windy - a rare winter weekend in the lakes when there was wall to wall sunshine throughout

David Watson walked up on August 30th, 2018 [from/via/route] Bowness Knot [weather] Sunny

Elaine Evans climbed on September 6th, 2018 [from/via/route] From Gatesgarth car park, across Peggy's Bridge and up to High Crag, on to High Stile, then Red Pike, descended to Bleaberry Tarn and down to shores of Buttermere via Burtness Wood. Walked alongside water's edge back to carpark. [with] Sue and Christine [weather] Lovely day for walking, not too hot, a couple of light showers but mostly OK. - Really good, mostly enjoyable walk but did not like the descent from Red Pike at all! So pleased the rain didn't come in as forecast.

John Bryers bagged on August 16th, 2018 [from/via/route] Third of 7 Wainwrights today. Camped at Syke Farm, Buttermere. Walked along Crummock water from Scale bridge Scale force, traversing Starling Dodd to join ridge path to top of Great Bourne returning via Starling Dodd and on to Red Pike. [with] With Mya my faithful Patterdale Terrier. [weather] Weather blustery with occasional showers with some strong cool winds for August! - Once bagged, headed to High Stile and beyond!
