Kevin Foster walked up on June 11th, 2021 [from/via/route] Bowness Knott car park. [with] By myself. [weather] Some clouds. - The broad ridge between Great Borne and Starling Dodd was easily followed by keeping to the right of the fence and cutting across the corner on a well defined path. The top is a small rounded grassy cone with excellent views across the valley towards Steeple and Pillar. After a steep rocky descent down Dodsgill Beck you reach the tranquility of Ennerdale Forest. The last couple of miles beside the River Liza and along Ennerdale Water are delightful. A nice walk.

Michael Austin climbed on October 14th, 2020 [from/via/route] C411 & C207

Christina Lander bagged on April 23rd, 2021 [from/via/route] Bowness Knott, Ennerdale - Great Borne - Starling Dodd - Red Pike - Smithy Beck Settlement - Bowness Knott [with] Dick [weather] A beautiful sunny day - During our holiday staying in Embleton

Ian Mackenzie hiked on April 10th, 2021 [from/via/route] From Bowness Knott car park, along the water then straight up Red Pike, across to Starling Dodd. [with] Me, myself and I [weather] Sunny but cold - Great walk but with steep ascent and descents, not yet fit so it hurt!

Andrew Johnson summited on November 25th, 2020 [from/via/route] Ennerdale [with] Ted [weather] Cloudy, windy

Darren Wilson conquered on August 30th, 2020 [from/via/route] Buttermere, Great Borne,Starling Dodd, Red Pike, High Stile, High Crag, Haystacks, Fleetwith Pike [with] Mike [weather] Good day - Clear day good views

Dave Eyes scaled on August 19th, 2019 [from/via/route] Parked at carpark under Bowness Knott on the shore of ennerdale water. Walked along the shore path and then up Starling Dodd and then on to Great Borne [with] Christine Eyes [weather] Cloudy with a heavy rain and a very strong wind - hardly any views.

Wayne Baxter walked up on August 7th, 2020 [from/via/route] Ennerdale Waters Bowness knot car park. Back along the road to a stile on your right,up to Herdus and follow path to Great Borne, now follow path to Starling Dodd. On to Little Dodd before turning left down a very steep path to Ennerdale waters and back to car. (the route down is not recommended) [with] Sue [weather] Rain to start with very high winds. Sunny on the way back.

Caroline Winter climbed on August 27th, 2019 [from/via/route] Gatesgarth, Scarth Gap Pass, Seat, High Crag, High Stile, Red Pike, Starling Dodd, Great Borne, Steel Brow, Scales, The Fish at Buttermere, B5289 to CP [with] Becky [weather] 9.30 Start and already feeling hot and sticky on long climb up. No wind until late afternoon (SW), and great views of surrounding Fells. Cloud predicted on High Crag at 1pm, and cloud descended on leaving Great Borne. - Classic ridge walk with a plethora of views, not forthcoming on last visit here. Red scree peppering slopes of Red pike, so to descend further along after continuing the ridge to Starling Dodd and Great Borne (Starling Dodd has a very odd twisted metal structure on its top). Also, saves climbing them from Ennerdale. Came down further West along a track, so needed to back Track to find NW route. Long walk out along slippery rocks and bracken. Diversion at scale Bridge, due to reconstruction. Missed last bus at 17.18 hrs, so ate a delicious trout dinner at The Fish, before walking the road-nearly as pleasant as the lake walk, and saved £25 plus on taxi fare.

Richard Marshall bagged on April 14th, 2019 [from/via/route] C411 [with] Bo [weather] Cloudy/sunny. Very Cold bit breezy.
