[weather] Clear, fine & a beautiful sunny day for late September. - Parked car at Cow Bridge car park. (donation into box). Commenced at 0945hrs. & stuck to the route apart from not visiting the top of Cauldale Head to take in the views.

Kevin Foster conquered on May 28th, 2019 [from/via/route] Hartsopp Dodd. [with] Henry. [weather] Sunny & hot becoming cloudier later on with a cold northerly breeze. - The wall can be followed down to the col & 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 & 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 & out towards the Irish sea.

[weather] Cloudy morning breaking out into a sunny afternoon. - Steep ascent of Hartsop Dodd, with snow patches on the hill face & full snow cover on top. The stone wall along the ridge provided an easy to follow handrail to Stony Cove Pike, but snow depth increased to about 6-inches (and deep areas of drift). Snow hid the path into the valley bottom, with the river tributaries forming a target on the descent.
John Tippins hiked on April 12th, 2016 [from/via/route] Hartsop [with] Solo [weather] Weather was lousy in the morning - rain & very low cloud. Didn't venture out until the afternoon, which was a lovely sunny day though a bit blowy & chilly on top.

Colin Egan conquered on April 5th, 2017 [from/via/route] Continuation from Gray Crag, 6th of 6 fells today. Approached via flank of Thornthwaite Crag & Theshthwaite Mouth. Not an enjoyable route up onto no 6. [with] My wife Faith [weather] Sunny day with some cloud, wind cold & strong on summit. - Walk as far as Threshthwaite Mouth was pleasant but the climb up the flank of Threshthwaite Crag was not much fun, scrambling where there is no clear path ahead & one felt almost as though the next leg up was too high. The route down towards Kirkstone Pass was OK but boring & boggy. The last bit after more than 12 miles was almost as hard as the earlier climb, the path down under St Raven's Edge was steep & rocky & tired legs did not appreciate it! The drinks we had in the Kirkstone Inn were some compensation for the hard slog at the end of an excellent day out on the fells.
