"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.

"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
