Birkett 3 Revisit with Pete via South East TopDave Geere19/01/2020
Visited Birkett cairn first then wandered over to the smaller, supposedly higher, cairn to the WNW. With Alfie. I'm surprised this hill isn't a Synge.Dangerous Dave01/12/2019
From 3 Shires,Cold Pike,Great Knott,only managed first and second crinkle had to call it a day due to wind and clag.Returned low level to pick up Stoesty Pike and Little Stand.A bit confusing in the clag.jocks129/08/2019
With Ian. Visited actual and subjective tops.PeteF03/07/2019
Circuit from Langdale to pick off hills previously missed: White Stones -> Shelter Crags N Top -> Crinkle Crag 4 & 3 -> Stonesty Pike -> Great Knott -> Brown Howe. Started raining as we left the car park, didn't stop until returning to the car park - a dreich day. With nephy Andrew P.jonglew26/04/2019

Both tops bagged then onto the Crinkles for a re-visit.Alan Caine12/05/2018
Wrynose Pass - Red Tarn - STONESTY PIKE - Little Stand - return. I doubt Birkett intended this to be the designated top. Another example of someone getting the wrong grid reference like Great Whinscale!citygent30/04/2018
From Oxendale via Brown Howe over snow and through the mist but then just emerged into the sun. Both Birkett's and the true summit. On to Cold Pike far West Top.Eddie20/01/2018

From Great Knott, short ascent then traverse across to cairn near rocky outcrop. This is not official highest point, the GR is for another lesser cairn about 200m to W (which looked lower to me).Aye Jimmy13/08/2013
Done solo as part of my version of the Langdale Horseshoe. My direct line to Cold Pike took me over this high ground. (Dry conditions made this crossing easy.)Aimless Rambler16/07/2013
