Andrew Johnson climbed on January 21st, 2020 [from/via/route] Patterdale [with] Ted [weather] Cleared to blue skies at some points, snow and ice on top - Tracked down Zena the lost husky and returned her to her owner.
Kevin Foster bagged on November 14th, 2019 [from/via/route] Patterdale [with] Henry. [weather] Grey skies (visibility good below 2000 feet) freezing hill mist above 2000 feet. - Beyond the col a slanting track to the left climbs gradually to the minor top of Gavel Pike. I was surprised how much snow and ice there was so early in the winter season making it a tough climb. The large summit cairn was covered in snow and frost sculpted by the biting northerly wind. Not lingering I left the summit by the well cairned main path. At the massive cairn on the edge of crags overlooking Grisedale below the views opened up again. From here on the walk back to Patterdale was a sheer delight with wonderful views of Ullswater in the distance. A lovely walk.
Richard Beardsley hiked on September 16th, 2019 [from/via/route] Route C211 starting from Patterdale. [with] Gillian. [weather] Clear, fine and a mostly sunny day. - Parked car at Patterdale car park, (£4.50 all day). Commenced walk at 0945hrs. Route too Arnison Crag and Birks was straight forward. Decided to divert SW from Birks and summit Saint Sunday Crag along a well defined path that climbed steeply to its top. Once completed we retraced back to Birks and continued with route C211 back to the car park. Arrived back at 1500hrs. Thoroughly enjoyable day.
