Continued to the two tops of Great Yarlside, then Little Yarlside, Whatshaw Common and Whatshaw Common E top.

Crookdale horseshoe.rhalstead01/04/2018
WOs 86-91; Bs 73-78. A good clear day with the sun coming through p.m. Drove to Shap summit and did a mixture of W's Wasdale and Crookdale horseshoes. Good path out over Whatshaw Common, Little Yarlside and Great Yarlside. The crossing of Crookdale was not as boggy as feared and a reasonable ascent to Lord's Seat with a good path over Robin Hood. Nasty bog to the foot of High House Bank, then good path along the ridge. Very unpleasant descent through tussocks and bog to the Hause Foot lane, then old road back to the summit. A good day.BURGESS09/08/2017

11.1 Mile walk from top of A6, walked down to Crookdale Bridge and straight up to High House Bank summit (Small cairn), along ridge onto Robin Hood (small cairn)and onto Lords Seats very featureless summit, followed ridge across a few bogs to Grey Crag then across big bog to Tarn Crag, back across to Harrop Pike cairn and along easy ridge to Great Yarlside's featureless summit down over pathetic knoll of Little Yarlside and onto boggy Whatshaw Common (no cairn), back down to pass. Nice day, started sunny then high cloud spilt in. Couldn't believe we didn't see anybody on a Sunday in the lakes!DanTrig17/07/2016
