Caroline Winter walked up on August 9th, 2018 [from/via/route] Glenridding, Stiding Edge, Helvellyn, Swirral Edge, Catsye Cam [with] Becky [weather] Warm, clear skies, light breeze - After battling with the new Ticket machine at Glenridding CP for 20 mins, we eventually got away. Hot & sticky long ascent. Rather than doubling back, should have taken a direct line to hole in the wall. Third time lucky, due to poor weather, did Striding-perfect conditions. No problem for Becky on tricky climb section. Others struggling! Made for Dolly Waggon Pike, but time & energy against us, so came back to top Helvellyn, & Catsye Cam via Swirral. Enjoyed a needed drink in Hole in the Wall cafe at YH. My boots painful-time for a new Pair.

Angela Haworth climbed on September 26th, 1999 [from/via/route] From Glenridding Birkhouse Moor - Striding Edge- Helvellyn- Swirral Edge - Catstycam [with] children [weather] Dry - .

Andrew Flynn bagged on October 10th, 2020 [from/via/route] C213 Hellvellyn via Striding edge [with] Nicola and some Pumas [weather] Nice day at ground level but foul at the top.

Sarah Culverhouse hiked on September 18th, 2020 [from/via/route] Glenridding [weather] glorious sunshine

Kevin Foster summited on October 24th, 2019 [from/via/route] Patterdale [with] By myself. [weather] Blue skies (cloud developing later on Striding Edge & Helvellyn). - An easy scramble over rocks takes you to the summit of High Spying How. The cloud had descended a little by this time & the rocks were a bit slippy so I 'chickened out' of sticking strictly to the ridgeline & took the path that runs a few feet below. I even managed to avoid the difficult chimney section at the end of 'The Edge' for the first time ever! The final scramble to the summit was fun though!

Clare Tait conquered on September 12th, 2014 [from/via/route] Parked at Swirls & took bus to Dunmail Raise. Good paths & great views. On to Helvellyn & back down to Swirls. Good route. [with] Charlie [weather] Sunshine - Beautiful views.

Lucy Perchard scaled on September 17th, 2017 [from/via/route] From Birkhouse Moor on the way to Helvellyn [with] Tony [weather] Sunny spells & fortunately not windy - First scramble & loved it
