Kate Peacock walked up 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 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 Kirk bagged on August 6th, 2022 [from/via/route] Lanthwaite Farm Car Park [with] Sarah Curran [weather] Windy but clear

Claire Murray hiked 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

Richard Marchant summited on June 16th, 2022 [from/via/route] Early start from Lanthwaite Green Farm north up Whin Ben & then on to Whiteside. From here it was just a case of following the narrow ridge around to Hopegill Head down Sand Hill to Coledale Hause. From here I headed South to the top of Wandope Moss then headed West up on to the summit of Grasmoor. I then back tracked to Wandope & proceeded South along Whiteless Edge on to Whiteless Pike. Continued South to Whiteless Breast before eventually turning West & climbing the ridge to Rannerdale Knotts. From here I dropped down to the B5289 & followed the road back to my car. [with] On my Own [weather] Clear hot sunny day with little or no breeze.

Chris Sheard conquered on May 19th, 2022 [from/via/route] Up from Lanthwaite via Whin Ben [with] George [weather] Pleasant at ground level, heavy gusting winds, no rain brightened later later with sunshine as we completed the round - Made this ascent as part of a nice circular coming down the other side of a horse shoe

Richard Annett scaled on February 26th, 2022 [from/via/route] Parking place near Crummock Water [with] Euan [weather] 50 mph winds, very hard. - Wheatsheaf Inn, cider

Wayne Baxter walked up on August 18th, 2021 [from/via/route] From car park near Lanthwaite Green farm follow the path to Whin Ben & onto Whiteside. Returned by same path [with] Sue [weather] very low cloudy - Just before Whin Ben we went into the cloud & did not see any more than 6feet in front of us until we return to Whin Ben

Michael Nolan climbed on April 16th, 2021 [from/via/route] Lorton [with] Morag [weather] Brilliant bright day!

Catherine Hill bagged on September 28th, 2020 [from/via/route] Near the top of Crummock water - Hopegill Pike via Whiteside East Top & followed by Grassmore & Whiteless Pike [with] Alone [weather] Dry,windy
