Kevin Foster walked up on October 24th, 2019 [from/via/route] Patterdale [with] By myself. [weather] Blue skies (cloud developing later on Striding Edge and Helvellyn). - An easy scramble over rocks takes you to the summit of High Spying How. The cloud had descended a little by this time and the rocks were a bit slippy so I 'chickened out' of sticking strictly to the ridgeline and 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 climbed on September 12th, 2014 [from/via/route] Parked at Swirls and took bus to Dunmail Raise. Good paths and great views. On to Helvellyn and back down to Swirls. Good route. [with] Charlie [weather] Sunshine - Beautiful views.
