Up Nether Beck and Lad Crag Beck to my final Synge. I agree with Crib Goch this is a pointless top but it does typify everything about Synges. A big Shout Out to Tim Synge who has introduced so many of us to obscure places in the Lake District.DC11main16/09/2019
From layby by private road to Windsor Farm (Harrow Head) Middle Fell, High Pikehow (this is no more than a rocky bump of no significance, so don't bother unless you are in the vicinity anyway) Seatallan, Glade How, Buckbarrow.ijpowell23/05/2019
My penultimate Synge - glad I didn't leave this one till last, it really is a complete waste of time and effort! There are two rocky prominences of similar height c140 metres apart. My GPS reading NY 14398 09955 is closest to Tim Synge's 144099, which corresponds to the OS spot height of 574m. Route was via Nether Beck, before taking off steeply left beyond Waver Beck and then across rough ground to summit. Afterwards, re-visited some proper tops - Haycock, Scoat Fell and Red Pike.Crib Goch19/05/2019

Parked at bottom of Nether Beck under Middle Fell, walked up the half decent path all way to Pots of Ashness. Skirted this wet ground to NE and then the Joss Naylor trail to break off for my penultimate Synge, High Pikehow. For good measure re-bagged Haycock, Little Haycock then back past Pikehow to Seatallan on the JNT then Middle Fell. Descended direct through Iron Crag to path then car.nordicstar27/02/2019
An extra spur on a round walk of Buckbarrow, Glade How Seatallan and Middle Fell. Very good and fairly direct path down from Seatallan summit with only a bit of mud at dip. Not a very impressive top, but lovely, remote and quiet top and unsurprisingly non one else here.Hillsidenick26/02/2019

Up Nether Beck then Lad Crag Beck with DW taking in High Pikehow, Caw, Little Gowder, Scoat Fell, Steeple and Red Pike Down via Dore Head and Over Beck. Weather OK to beging, but hot and windless for the second half of the day. 11 days of dry weather made this walk, more pleasant than it could have been.nukeboy121/05/2018
