Climbed again on a wonderful day via Lord's Rake & the West Wall Traverse with Hayley Webb on 19.07.2021 This was definitely the best route up. [with] On my own both times. [weather] Humid & cloudy for my first climb & clear & sunny for my second. - On my first visit I met a chap who was very disoriented after a fall on Lord's Rake. I was able to lead him safely down to Wasdale & back to his campsite.

Clare Tait hiked on August 10th, 2021 [from/via/route] From pull in near Wha House Farm car park. Car park was full. [with] Charlie [weather] Dry & bright in the valleys; sadly cloud on the higher summits. - No. 73 Wainwright. Found this extremely hard. Took the route described as ' the easiest' through bog & over multiple streams. Slight Side had a horrible steep path of loose dirt & scree. Sca Fell itself looked huge & forbidding. More zigzag paths of scree. The top was covered in low cloud & there was no view over to Sca Fell Pike. Returned the same way although went wrong & stayed too high at the base of Slight Side. Glad it's done. Won't return.

Wayne Baxter summited on July 14th, 2021 [from/via/route] From Wha House farm car park (opposite the farm). Walked up to cats crag onto Slight Side. Onto Long Green leading to Sca Fell. Return same route. [with] Sue [weather] Cloudy with the odd sunny spell

Sunny all day - Underestimated how exhausting the walk. Age & reduced fitness taking its toll. We watched Fell runner climbed Lords Rake in 3 minutes ! Met up with Kiwi shepherds & continued walking & spent the following day with them. Ran out of steam & time to add on Lingmell. Very late for booked meal at Wasdale, but they kindly served us.
