"From the car park at NY280253 near Latrigg. Solo. After ascending Lonscale Fell. Sought out the highest point on Jenkin Hill, with its very small drop. Then over Lesser Man, Little Man to Skiddaw. Descended over Carlside and southwards to the hamlet of Millbeck and walked along the road through Applethwaite back to the car park. Nice weather which attracted lots of walkers to Skiddaw." - peter43, Aug 8, 2013
"We did a circular walk of the Skiddaw massif, starting from a minor road near Bassenthwaite village. Firstly going up Ullock Pike via its NW ridge, over Longside edge to Carl Side. From there we cut across the scree slopes of Skiddaw and up onto Little Man. From here we climbed up via the south top onto the main summit of Skiddaw and then descended northwards, over the north top and down to Bakestall, then down by Dead Crags to Dash falls, where we picked up a good track back to the start point." - davidlong, May 10, 2009
"Leading a part of boys from the King's School, Chester. Caught the bus from Cockermouth to Ravenstone. Walked straight up hillside through young plantation. At top reached a path which would seem to have started at the track shown on the map just south of Ravenstone. Walked diagonally up hillside and then on to the ridge and Ullock Pike. Followed ridge round and up moderately steep scree. Along summit ridge to Skiddaw. Very strong wind. Returned over Little Man, and footpath via Whit Beck, Underscar to Applethwaite to main road for bus to Cockermouth. " - peter43, Apr 15, 1962
