Up the ridge from Gatesgarth. Along to Honister Crag. The little bothy there is now totally wrecked with no roof. I remember when it was useable and just needed a simple roof repair. Back to Warnscale Bottom visiting the other two bothies on the way. With Alfie. W 22 Rnd 6Dangerous Dave23/06/2020

7th and last summit of the day following Stuart Marshall's Buttermere Marathon. Took a long break between Haystacks and Dubb's Hut before tackling this one. Was feeling the heat from a relentless sun and despite refilling my water was feeling dehydrated. The descent took 1.5 hours because of fatigue and dehydration but no other problems (the path looks scarier than it actually is). Long walk back to Buttermere through clouds of midges along the road because lakeside footpath was closed.NorthernWayfarer22/06/2019

A wonderfull walk up here. I was told there was plenty to see from this summit, and they were not wrong. A bit breezy, but clear skies and perfect viewsdave-harris30/08/2018
With Chris, lovely weather in the valley but windy and misty on the summit of High Stile. Some drizzle. Started with Fleetwith Pike having parked at the farm at the bottom, then on to Haystacks, High Crag and High Stile. Path down to Buttermere difficult wouldn't recommend. Would definitely do Haystacks and Fleetwith again but would come down via Scarth Gap. Path down into Butteremere never-ending, walked back along the lake though which was very pleasant.karentracey15/07/2018
We had Myla but still desperate for a decent walk but not too difficult we chose Fleetwith but started from Honister pass. From there we Followed the slate mine road most of the way up before it ending and making the final push to the top. Very easy this way however the views down Crummock water and Buttermere from the famous summit Cairn were outstanding! Took my breath away. After taking pictures including one of the new pfp hat me and Bec lay down in the sun at the summit and chilled out. Was so lovely to be on a summit and relax and eat etc. we retraced our steps and back to the honister slate mine shop for a drink before heading home.Scotty 2 Hotty14/07/2018

Climbed Fleetwith Pike up the Via Ferrata Classic Route with Elizabeth & James for my 53rd birthday present to myself. Took the bus from the Honister Visitor Centre to the start of the climb then followed the Via Ferrata, waterfall scramble and final scramble up to the summit. Took about 2 hours and was well worth the effort. Couldn't see Great Gable & Scafell Pike due to the low cloud but was assured we were looking in the right direction which brought back happy memories from 2015. Descent over some boggy ground then the track back to the Visitor Centre. Day was overcast with low cloud although the heavy showers had blown over by the time we started the climb. A great day although Elizabeth & James may disagree!TractorBoy22/10/2017
