James Brocken walked up on August 25th, 2019 [weather] Sunny

Jamie Bryan climbed on July 3rd, 2019 [weather] Sunny

Richard Marchant bagged on June 1st, 2009 [from/via/route] We parked at the small car parking spaces near the top of Latrigg. The boys were young so it reduced the climb up to Skiddaw and made sure we all enjoyed it. From the car it was basically an up and down walk on the main tourist path up to Little Man and on to Skiddaw and back down. Great views and an awesome day out. [with] Alison my wife and my two boys James and Thomas [weather] A fine day with not wind wall to wall sunshine - The ascent of Skiddaw was taken during a weeks holiday in the Lakes with Alison and the boys. We stayed at the White Cross Caravan site in between Windermere and Ambleside in a log cabin. A great holiday and lovely memories.

Stephen Reader hiked on July 3rd, 2019 [from/via/route] the tourist route from the car parj [with] Bev & Afia [weather] Glorious sunshine. - Views to die for across the lakes, into Scotland and the Isle of Man

Geoffrey Robertshaw summited on June 18th, 2019 [from/via/route] Up from Skiddaw car park [with] Wife [weather] Great - Great Views at the top

Liz Sheerin walked up on February 15th, 2013 [from/via/route] Keswick [with] Neil

Lucy Perchard climbed on September 24th, 2018 [from/via/route] Caught bus from Keswick to Ravenstone Manor then climbed to Skiddaw via the Ullock Pike, Long Side and Carl Side before descending back to Keswick via Skiddaw Little Man and Lonscale Fell [with] Tony [weather] Low cloud covered Skiddaw but this lifted once we reached Carl Side so plan A to climb to Skiddaw was a goer (plan B to descend to Dodd if Skiddaw was still in cloud). Showers towards the end of the walk. - A great linear walk

Andrew Johnson bagged on January 2nd, 2019 [from/via/route] Peterhouse farm [weather] Blue skies, chilly
