Beutiful day to pick up this stragglerjocks119/06/2019
Possible earlier ascents on way to or from Robinson but unsure - hence this ascent from Newlands Hause. Decided to re-ascend Robinson as the weather was perfect and the hills empty, whilst Buttermere was crowded. A really dedicated tumper would have descended and found a nearby lowly, unclimbed tump.JohnW29/04/2019
