Martin Woods walked up on September 13th, 2020 [from/via/route] From Buttermere fish Inn. Red pike and high stile walk [with] Dean and H [weather] Cloudy, rain on tops, 40mph winds - Took path off high stile to the left and led us back down to Buttermere. Quite a bit of a scramble.

Darren Wilson climbed on August 30th, 2020 [from/via/route] Buttermere, Great Borne,Starling Dodd, Red Pike, High Stile, High Crag, Haystacks, Fleetwith Pike [with] Mike [weather] Good day - Clear day good views

Claire Kirk bagged on August 1st, 2018 [from/via/route] Buttermere Hostel [with] Alone [weather] Very cloudy

Christine Shepherd hiked 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 summited 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 conquered on September 21st, 2019 [from/via/route] Mosedale horseshoe [with] Bo and Andy Pratt [weather] sunny. Very warm.

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

Caroline Winter walked up 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 climbed 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 bagged 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
