Richard Fulcher summited on July 31st, 2021 [from/via/route] Jen dropped me at the Gale Road car park & I started off along the Cumbria Way around Lonscale Fell. I ascended up on the edge of Lonscale Crags to Lonscale Fell & then walked over Jenkin Hill to Little Man. From there I joined the main route up to Skiddaw & over the other side to Bakestall. I descended via Birkett Edge & then followed the Cumbria Way route down to Peter House Farm. I walked down the road to Walk Mill Bridge where Jen picked me up.

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 & started the return descent to Little Man.
