Kevin Foster walked up on May 20th, 2020 [from/via/route] Whiteside West Top (Crummock). [with] By myself. [weather] Very sunny and very hot. - A very easy and pleasant ridge walk of about a quarter of a mile takes you to the higher of Whitesides two tops. Great views all round.

Christine Shepherd climbed on September 22nd, 2007 [from/via/route] Walked from Braithwaite [with] On my own [weather] Sunny and 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.

Simon Boddy bagged on September 16th, 2019 [from/via/route] Crummock [with] HF Holidays [weather] Sunny and clear

Dave Eyes hiked on June 17th, 2019 [from/via/route] Parked at Lanthwaite farm layby on the road to Buttermere. Crossed the road and headed up Whiteside. Onwards from Whiteside to Hopegill Head and then further on to the top of Grisedale Pike. The return journey took us via the top of Grasmoor and we descended via Lad How to the road and walked back to the car. [with] Christine Eyes [weather] good visibility but very windy once up high.

Craig Steeland summited on June 29th, 2019 [from/via/route] From Langthwaite [with] With Sue [weather] Partly cloudy, warm and dry apart from a few patches of light rain

Andrew Johnson conquered on January 28th, 2019 [from/via/route] Cinderdale car park, Buttermere [weather] Clear and snowy

Bay Wan scaled on August 2nd, 2018 [from/via/route] Whiteside, Hopegill Head and Grisedale Pike and return through the valley bypassing Force Crag Mine [with] Cocoa dog - 7 yrs old [weather] Cloudy with sunny intervals. 20 degrees - Waaaaay too much scrambling, scree, ridges and one of the shitest pathways in the valley. Went round in circles near the end cos it wasn't obvious where the path had gone! This walk is doable but challenging and not for the faint hearted!

John Tippins walked up on March 28th, 2018 [from/via/route] Started at Lanthwaite Green, go4awalk c196. [with] Solo [weather] Sleet and rain showers on the way there, thick low cloud with the sun breaking through very occasionally. Quite windy on top making it cold enough for gloves - fingers freezing! Walking through fresh hail (or was it sleet?) near the summits. Towards late afternoon, as I was coming back down, the cloud lifted and the sun came out - a really beautiful day then.

Andy Jakob climbed on April 22nd, 2017 [from/via/route] up west side of Crummock water and then Langthwaite green to Whiteside [with] AFWC Me and Colin [weather] Sunny

Richard Wilkinson bagged on May 5th, 2017 [from/via/route] 6 Peak Circular from Lanthwaite NT Car Park - Whiteside, Hopegill Head, Grasmoor, Wandope, Whiteless Pike and Rannerdale Knotts (finishing with a detour into the secret valley of Rannerdale). [weather] Sunny day, but with strong winds. - Good ridge walk from Whiteside to Hopegill Head - fantastic lake views from the top of Grasmoor, but difficult to stay still in the wind - enjoyable descent from Whiteless giving views of the Bluebells in the secret valley. Camera battery went on Wandope, only for me to realise that I was already using the spare!... best part of the walk with no camera! DOH!
