Claire Murray climbed on April 4th, 2021 [from/via/route] Coledale Horseshoe. Grisedale Pike, Hopegill Head, Crag Hill, Sail and Outerside [with] Vitor [weather] Awful! Started off sunny and hot but was 40mph winds at the top and complete cloud. Very windy and 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

Claire Kirk summited on July 11th, 2020 [from/via/route] Braithwaite [with] Phil [weather] Low cloud and drizzly to start, sun came out in the afternoon
Kevin Foster conquered on March 4th, 2020 [from/via/route] Crag Hill. [with] Henry. [weather] Cloudy with light snow showers. - The crux/highlight of today's walk was the ridge linking Crag Hill with Sail. The last deposits of winter snow making the easy ridge scramble that much more fun with steep drops on either side and great views in every direction.

Climbed this for a third time as part of the 10 in 10 challenge on 22.6.2019
Simon Boddy climbed on September 17th, 2019 [from/via/route] Rannerdale [with] HF Holidays [weather] Sunny and clear
Richard Marchant bagged on October 3rd, 1993 [from/via/route] We parked at the car park just before the visitors centre up in Whinlatter Pass. The walk was basically Coledale Round starting with a walk through the Hospital Plantation on to the ridge of Sleet How and the ascent of Grisedale Pike then on to Hopegill Head-Sand Hill down to Coledale Hause followed then by the ascent of Crag Hill (Eel Crag) to Sail and then descended to Outerside missing out on Causey Pike due to Marlene shattered as it had been a long day for her, so then to Stile End and down into Braithwaite and back up the road to the car. That trek up the road seem to go on for ever and was a bad move. [with] Marlene & Alan Harker [weather] A fine day with no wind and wall to wall sunshine - Carried out the Coledale Round with Marlene and Alan Harker and the memorable thing we still laugh about today was the the pubs didn't open all day then and when we got into Braithwaite everything was closed and Marlene was so looking forward to a half of Shandy.
