Great contrast between the big mountains (however very quiet) & the tranquil banks of Crummock Water.

Christine Shepherd hiked Whiteside (Crummock) on September 22nd, 2007 [from/via/route] Walked from Braithwaite [with] On my own [weather] Sunny & clear - Looking at my peak bagging record I thought I had done this peak with Grasmoor but realised it was more likely added on to The Coledale Round.With these doubts I decided I had better do it again so I climbed it on 18.6.12 from Braithwaite just to make sure! Climbed this with Jenny from Lanthwaite Green on a trip to see the bluebells on 22.5.18. Climbed Whiteside again on my own using walk c246 on a glorious Autumn day on 11.11.23

Angeline Grieveson scaled Whiteside (Crummock) on May 30th, 2023 [with] Dotty

Kate Peacock walked up Whiteside (Crummock) on August 28th, 2022 [from/via/route] Car park on Whinlatter bank [with] Me & Sheila [weather] No breeze at all. Humid all day. Hotter on the morning, rain toward the end which I was glad about but it didn't really cool down - Couldn't really enjoy a lot of the tops because of flying ants.

Richard Fulcher climbed Whiteside (Crummock) on August 27th, 2022 [from/via/route] Parked in a little space before the second gate on the old road joined to Whinlatter Pass. We set off through the bracken opposite the entrance to High Swinside farm & trudged up to meet a wall (gathering ticks along the way). Slogged up the steep grassy slope to Ladyside Pike & then onwards to Hopegill Head - looks intimidating but isn't bad in ascent. From there we traversed along the ridge to Whiteside, descending from the east top down a steep (in places) path to Dodd Pass & then back to the car. [with] Jen [weather] Low cloud covered the high ground until we reached the 'Head' providing atmospheric photography possibilities! The day then became warm with blue skies & puffy clouds, providing good visibility for the outstanding views. - A strenuous but enjoyable walk taking us about 7.5 hours - slow, because we take a lot of photos & generally faff about!

Claire Murray bagged Whiteside (Crummock) on June 18th, 2022 [from/via/route] Whiteside from NT Woods car park then along Hopegill Head & back by the waterfalls & crystal clear river [with] Vitor - River was so beautiful! Path was falling away
