5th summit of the day following Stuart Marshall's Buttermere marathon route. Had a bit of cramp between High Stile and High Crag, so stopped for a few minutes to take an electrolyte tablet and some water. No problem finding the top of this one. Descent was hellish though. A fell race meant lots of stops to allow people to pass.NorthernWayfarer22/06/2019
As part of the Red Pike ridge walk. With Richie and MB.Zoe Little01/06/2019
Solo - Lovely sunny evening, great views, but not one I would rush back to. Buttermere is lovely but I found the fells to screey - if that is such a word.jonesj223/05/2019

8th ascentIWC22/07/2018
With Chris, lovely weather in the valley but windy and misty on the summit of High Stile. Some drizzle. Started with Fleetwith Pike having parked at the farm at the bottom, then on to Haystacks, High Crag and High Stile. Path down to Buttermere difficult wouldn't recommend. Would definitely do Haystacks and Fleetwith again but would come down via Scarth Gap. Path down into Butteremere never-ending, walked back along the lake though which was very pleasant.karentracey15/07/2018
