Kate Peacock walked up on August 28th, 2022 [from/via/route] Car park on Whinlatter bank [with] Me & Sheila [weather] No breeze at all. Humid all day. Hotter on the morning, rain toward the end which I was glad about but it didn't really cool down - Couldn't really enjoy a lot of the tops because of flying ants.

David Butterfield climbed on July 8th, 2022 [from/via/route] Uzzicar [with] Nigel [weather] Cloudy

Pete George bagged on May 29th, 2022 [from/via/route] Braithwaite [with] Roco [weather] Cool but clear

Chris Sheard hiked on May 18th, 2022 [from/via/route] Along from Scar Craggs along ridge [with] George [weather] Pleasant at ground level, no rain brightened later later with sunshine as we completed the round - Made this ascent as part of a nice circular coming down the other side of a horse shoe

Richard Beardsley summited on July 14th, 2021 [from/via/route] Dropped off & started route at 0800 hrs from Braithwaite. Route C299. (Barrow, Stile End, Outerside, Sail, Scar Crags & Causey Pike). [with] Myself. [weather] Warm & sunny day. A short spell of low cloud around Sail. - A shorter Coledale Round starting at Braithwaite. An accurate route description which was followed. The only deviation was to include Sail on the easy to follow zig - zag path from the col between Sail & Scar Crags. The steep descent from Causey Pike was interesting so easy does it is the best way. Time took 5 & 1/2 hrs.

Richard Marshall conquered on June 30th, 2021 [from/via/route] Grisedale & Causey [with] Dave Elsie & Rocxy [weather] Sunny warm

Tim Winn scaled on May 26th, 2021 [from/via/route] Keswick [with] Jane, Louise and Barry [weather] Good

Claire Murray climbed on April 4th, 2021 [from/via/route] Coledale Horseshoe. Grisedale Pike, Hopegill Head, Crag Hill, Sail & Outerside [with] Vitor [weather] Awful! Started off sunny & hot but was 40mph winds at the top & complete cloud. Very windy & cold, much nicer at lower heights - Hard going to start with but a lovely easy to follow track. Would be much nicer on a day with better weather

Nick Christian bagged on September 14th, 2020 [from/via/route] Grasmoor [with] Karen Brown [weather] Good Sunny
