Geoff Hand climbed on March 23rd, 2022 [from/via/route] Walk c371 Rossett Pike, Esk Pike & Bowfell [with] Alone with Tess [weather] Glorious sunny & warm day (ridiculous for this time of year!) - Lovely walk up Mickleden, rossett gill, Esk Hause & back down the Band.

Carl Tillotson bagged on March 19th, 2022 [from/via/route] using route C371 in reverse [with] June [weather] Sunny, quite windy at top. Nice views, a little hazy to the west.

Chris Sheard hiked on March 14th, 2022 [from/via/route] Up from ODG [with] George [weather] Pleasant but clagged in later Fierce winds freezing feel, top clagged in with hails & near blizzard - Made this ascent in less than 2 hours - long run in

Stephanie Doyle conquered on September 18th, 2021 [from/via/route] Car park

Kevin Foster scaled on July 2nd, 2021 [from/via/route] The Old Dungeon Ghyll National Trust car park. [with] By myself. [weather] Some clouds. - The paved path to the head of Rossett Gill goes up & down a bit & passes Angle Tarn. I would have stayed for a break here but the wind had picked up & it had clouded over so I decided to press on. The ascent of Rossett Pike from the top of the rise to the head of Rossett Gill is quite easy ( a five minute walk). Descending back into Langdale via the packhorse path has improved due to large sections being paved but it is still long & my knees were glad to reach the valley floor. A classic walk!
