"We had come up to the Lakes again to grab a couple more peaks during the half term holidays and we were staying at the base of Dale Head at YHA Honister Hause. We woke to glorious sunshine with just a smatter of clouds and it was cold but not even a slight breeze. As we set off up Dale Head we could see a sprinkling of snow on the peaks across the valley but our route was clear. We reached the top just after 1pm and decided to carry on to Hindscarth. The ridge across proved a scary prospect for the youngest, it would seem that he does not have a head for heights and to be honest it is a long w" - Dale Head, charliegill, Oct 30, 2018

"Sunday 9th September 2018. An ascent of King’s How 392m/66m and Brund Fell 416m/38m on Grange Fell, Central Fells, Lake District, England, from Borrowdale. 7.9km, with 525m of ascent. 4 hours 0mins. I had set 9th September as the date when I planned to ascend my 2000th hill in the British list of Tumps (on which see at http://www.hill-bagging.co.uk/Tumps.php?ct=SEWM), thereby gaining entry to the Relative Hills Society’s (RHSoc) TumpHof (on which, see at http://www.rhb.org.uk/tumps/). As my 2000th Tump, I chose King’s How, one of the tops on the craggy plateau that sits between Borr" - King's How—Grange Fell, marktrengove2, Sep 9, 2018
"Last Day of a short break in the area, so small walk before driving home. From the Car park at Muncaster castle carpark, we walked up the A595 a short distance, then up a bridleway that ascended steadily past fields, a small lake and a small woodland. Then out onto the open hillside, where we walked up to the rocky summit which had a cairn. By the summit, some amateur radio enthusiasts had erected 2 radio masts and were talking to people all over the world. Good views all around of the coast and Lake District peaks. We then walked on to the 2nd summit, which by our GPS and altimeter was a metr" - Muncaster Fell, davidlong, Sep 7, 2018
"Returned to this pleasant seaside peak after several years. Started from the car park at Whicham church and walked up the tarmac lane to a farm, then up onto the open hillside on a bridleway alongside Moor Gill that steadily ascends over Townend Knotts at 300m and up to the summit. The weather was pleasant in the valley, but a strong cold gale force wind, straight off the sea was blowing at over 400m, which meant extra layers. Good views on the ascent and on the summit of the coastal plain, seascape and the Lake District peaks. It was clear enough to see the Isle of Man out to sea. After lunch" - Black Combe, davidlong, Sep 6, 2018
