Morning start from Wasdale head - just me and the dog. Very quiet walk. Started ~7.15 and at summit before 10 (2.5hr ascent). Sun in eyes on way up but quite clear view and very few people on path. Summit freezing wind chill with light snow on ground. Didn't stay long. Descent hindered by dog's short legs! Took about 1.5hr. By the time we reached the base it was baking hot. Path up was chock full of people and dogs coming up.MysteriousSue04/05/2019

Did not make it. Took 10 people up for my stag do, I was hoping to complete the third of my 'Three Peaks'. Only 3 summitted, it was just too wet, and far too long in it along the corridor route. Intimidating hill, it certainly gained my respect! I will be back.tumpawumpa26/08/2018

Set off despite unsettled forecast. Wind became ever stronger as climbed, then hit by hail.Surrounded by low cloud then, miraculously,the mists swirled away as we gained the summit' revealing Great Gable, Lingmell and the lakes below. All struggle worthwhile!Peak Rambler23/08/2018
