Claire Murray walked up on August 17th, 2020 [from/via/route] Started at village green near hotel. Walked Lingfell, Scafell, Pike, Scafell and the other one I've forgotten 🙈 [with] Murray [weather] Lovely! - Uphill struggles!

Caroline Winter climbed on July 31st, 2020 [from/via/route] Wasdale Head, Hollow Stones, Mickledore route, Lords Rake, Scafell, Foxes Tarn, Scafell Pike, Broad Crag, Lingmell Col [with] Becky, Royce, Courtney [weather] One of the hottest days of the year. Sunny all day - Underestimated how exhausting the walk. Age and reduced fitness taking its toll. We watched Fell runner climbed Lords Rake in 3 minutes ! Met up with Kiwi shepherds and continued walking and spent the following day with them. Ran out of steam and time to add on Lingmell. Very late for booked meal at Wasdale, but they kindly served us.

Andy Buxton bagged during August, 1968 [from/via/route] Corridor Route to Scafell Pike thenLOrd's Rake and West Wall Traverse. Descent vis Lord's Rake [with] Dad [weather] Misty - Lord's Rake a bloody loose thrutch. Also with Ian Wright in June 1980 plus other times

Richard Marshall hiked on July 31st, 2020 [from/via/route] From Boot. Fell off ScaFell [with] Bo [weather] Very Hot. Breezy on top

Michael Austin summited on May 12th, 2019 [from/via/route] Corridor Route [weather] Sunny

Paul Macey conquered on July 14th, 2020 [from/via/route] After Slight Side [weather] Low cloud

Elaine Evans scaled on September 23rd, 2019 [from/via/route] From Wasdale campsite carpark, via corpse road towards Burnmoor Tarn, ascended to Sca Fell then descended to Slight Side, back to corpse road and returned to car. [with] Sue [weather] Wonderful walking weather - fair, sunshine and cloud with a cooling breeze. Poor visibility on Sca Fell summit. - Very boggy ground on way up and on way down. Saw memorial to Polish pilots who crashed in 1941 - some wreckage still present at site.

Phillip Bulley walked up on September 8th, 2019 [from/via/route] From Backenclose to lords rake. [with] Ruby. [weather] Sunny and warm.

Bay Wan climbed on August 25th, 2019 [from/via/route] Slight Side to Scafell loop (avoided Scafell Pike like the plague because a) it was August Bank holiday weekend and b) I heard it was all bouldery so not really my bag) [with] Cocoa dog - 8 yrs old [weather] Sunny summers day. 25 degrees. Lovely with a breeze. Cooking without. - Path disappeared after about an hour on the way up to Slight Side at Whinscales and it's pretty boggy in most if the way, however, treading a lesser used path has its advantages being I saw no one until I neared Scafell! Didn't enjoy the scree descent down from Scafell and the boggy return, although the path was better here.

Richard Marchant bagged on November 23rd, 1993 [from/via/route] This was a two day trip with an overnight camp at Beckhead Tarn below Great Gable. Day 1 we ascended Yewbarrow then onto Red Pike-Scoat Fell-Pillar-Kirk Fell and descended to Beckhead Tarn and camped the night and what a cold night. Day 2 Great Gable-Scafell Pike via the corridor route then Sca Fell and back down to Wasdale and the car. [with] Best Friend Ray Collins. [weather] Clear blue skies, no wind but very cold and in the minus overnight
