Started from NT CP opp Blea Tarn, circled the fell anti-clockwise and ascended to the SE Top, then onto Busk Pike before reaching the main top. Next plan was for Side Pike but discovered before doing this route I need to diet first. Having already come this way before in 2005 and had no problem, I think I need to sort myself out lolWayne Mac29/12/2018

We continued walking along the ridge from Side Pike to the top of Lingmoor Fell in the strong belief that there must be a path back to the NT car park to complete a nice circular walk (there is!)Bernard28/10/2018

Lovely walk from NT car park at Old Dungeon Ghyll. Up ridge, down by the larches. Some fun easy scrambling. With Cal, Fred and Bob on the last day of our visit.Ham and Skate26/08/2017
I enjoyed the really fun and hard scrambling.CalTudor26/08/2017
With Jenx, Bryher and Timmo. From high point of road by cattle grid to West of Side Pike, traversing path taken to south of SP and join ascending path to col. Good tracks to Lingmoor, then heather thrash but downhill to Oakhowe col and climb to top, excellent viewpoint for Langdale. More heather and bracken around to wall then down to col below the crags of Side Pike. Nice skirting path through the boulder squeeze to gain path to summit of Side Pike. Easily down to car, some good easy scrambling on a fine circuit.nordicstar23/08/2017
