Peter Hanney walked up on November 23rd, 2020 [from/via/route] Little Man [with] Dianne and the Whiteheads [weather] Foul. Strong winds and rain/sleet

Kevin Foster climbed on March 30th, 2021 [from/via/route] Little Man. [with] By myself. [weather] Sunny to start then ascending into cloud. Cloud inversion on the top of Skiddaw which was cloud free. - Even in mist the ascent up the 'super highway' path, to the summit ridge of Skiddaw from Little Man, was straightforward. The cloud that had ruined the view all the way up from Lonscale Fell finally lifted as I reached the massive cairn marking the southern end of the summit ridge. The next half an hour taking in the spectacular views in every direction (except south where the cloud still lingered) was to say the least magical. Numerous photos later I reluctantly retraced my steps and started the return descent to Little Man.

Claire Murray bagged on February 28th, 2021 [from/via/route] Dodd Wood, Ullock Pike, Long Side, Carl Side and Skiddaw. [with] Vitor

Stephen Batson hiked on July 31st, 2020 [with] Clare

Tony Kenny conquered on April 1st, 2013 [with] Kitty

Gill Bates scaled on June 21st, 2016 [from/via/route] from Latrigg Car Park

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.
