5/12 Lonscale Fell from Skiddaw tourist path, then out to Lonscale Fell East Top, back to collect Jenkin Hill, Skiddaw Lesser Man, Skiddaw Little Man, Skiddaw South Top, Skiddaw Middle Top, Skiddaw Summit, Skiddaw North Top, Broad End, then down over the fence to East to pick up good track down to Hare Crag, down to Skiddaw House and back up Fence Line to Burnt Horse Hill, and popped back over the Lonscale Fell col to use tourist path back down to Keswick.

Started from Under Skiddaw car park, proceeded up the relentless gravel track. Deviate off main track to climb the steep peak of Little Man. I made the mistake in cloudy conditions that this was Skiddaw proper until the clouds cleared to showed the looming mass of Skiddaw and my gps confirmed it. Brilliant views from Little Man of Helvelyn range and Keswick.giant_hiker23/09/2019

From Skiddaw. Descended to Pt. 928m, then SW to the col and up to the summit. With BC, DB and RP. Onwards to Carl Side.Man of Kernow104/07/2018
We set off from the highest YHA in the country, Skiddaw House (470m) where we had enjoyed an excellent night’s accommodation, & what a treat to wake up in such spectacular surroundings. Quickly gaining height over Sale How through thousands of long legged bugs flying around, it felt like we reached the top of Little Man in no time at all. Absolutely fantastic view in the early morning haze & heat, & we lingered a while to savour the moment.AmyYoung23/05/2018
After taking my daughter(6) up Skiddaw, I took her up Little Man on the way back down. Blue skies and sunshine but cold biting wind. Got back down at 18:30.NorthernWayfarer13/05/2018
