Richard Beardsley bagged on September 20th, 2019 [from/via/route] Route C231 from Hartsop. [with] Gillian. [weather] Clear, fine and a beautiful sunny day for late September. - Parked car at Cow Bridge car park. (donation into box). Commenced at 0945hrs. and stuck to the route apart from not visiting the top of Cauldale Head to take in the views. The good weather certainly brought out individual groups of walkers so we were not alone. Arrived back to the car at 1515hrs. After a thoroughly enjoyable day.
John Bryers hiked on August 1st, 2019 [from/via/route] Parked at Cow Bridge, Hartsop. Up Hartsop Dodd and across to Caudale Moor via Stony cove Pike. Round Caudale Head to John Bells Banner, Pike How and St Raven Edge to Kirkstone Inn. Across road and up Red Screes in the heat of the day! A bite to eat and along to Middle Dodd and down to Scandale Pass. Up and across to Little Hart Crag and High Hartsop Dodd.

Kevin Foster summited on May 28th, 2019 [from/via/route] Hartsopp Dodd. [with] Henry. [weather] Sunny and hot becoming cloudier later on with a cold northerly breeze. - The wall can be followed down to the col and then virtually to the summit of Stony Cove Pike which lies some 25 metres or so to the left of the wall. John Bell's Banner the alternative but slightly lower top can be seen over to the right but it is a good way there and back over the vast moor. Wainwright recommends keeping to the Threshwaite side of the wall, there is no real path to follow but the views are worth it if you stick with it. Just a few metres South of the summit cairn is a rocky knoll with a fantastic panorama of the Southern Lake District in particular Lake Windermere, Morecambe Bay and out towards the Irish sea.
