"Took my 6-year-old daughter with me to bag her first mountain above 3,000ft. From Latrigg car park. Weather was sunny but a biting cold wind. Set off at 10:30am and had plenty of stops for rests along the way. Reached the summit about 2:30pm. Afterwards bagged Little Man on the way back down. Arrived back at car around 6pm.

"We parked by the Patterdale Hotel (£4.50 for the day), taking the path up the long valley of Grisedale, which separates St Sunday Crag and its subsidiary fells from the Helvellyn group to the north. At the first stile we turned south, to climb steeply on another path to the viewpoint on Oxford Crag - a good spot to take in the view north over Ullswater. We pushed on, following the wall, diverting left to make our way through the crags up to the summit. This was a very windy place, and we had trouble keeping our stance by the summit cairn. After summit photos, we dropped south, to shelter " - Arnison Crag, marktrengove2, Dec 15, 2017
"Last day of our stay in Keswick. A bright but cold day with some cloud on the summits as the day progressed. We went back to a favourite peak, Grisedale Pike. We set off from Whinlatter pass, steadily up through the forest for over a mile, then out onto the open hillside near the memorial seat. We climbed steeply onto Sleet How, then up the East ridge to the summit. After a brief stop, we continued down the SW ridge, above Hobcarton Crag and up to Hopegill Head.We returned by the same route." - Grisedale Pike, davidlong, Oct 27, 2017

On the summit some light clouds came over and we witnessed a Brocken Spectre, - which is the magnified shadow " - Hopegill Head, davidlong, Oct 27, 2017
"A better day than earlier in the week, we parked near Uzzicar in the Newlands Valley. We walked up the old mines track alongside Stonycroft Gill, on the lower slopes of Barrow. The track then passed near the summit of Outerside 568m, crossed High Moss then ascended steeply by Long Crags to Sail Pass. Then wind up the final 150m to the flat summit, with its very small summit cairn. From the summit we descended W to a col, then up a steep ridge to the broad top of Crag Hill 839m. After a short break on the summit in a strong wind, we descended to Coledale Hause, then down the mines track to Forc" - Crag Hill (Eel Crag), davidlong, Oct 26, 2017
