First walk in a while due to holidays, Becs cornwall ankle injury and the good old British weather. Having fuelled up on a Breakfast wrap from Maccies we set off to finally do what I consider the area I have most difficulty planning a walk the North western fells. We parked just outside Braithwaite near Uzzicar farm on a rocky cark park/passing area. Crossing Stoneycroft Gill Bridge we made our way up the very steep scrambley Rowling end via Ella Crag to get on to the main ridge of Causey. Bec had quite a lot of difficulty with her ankle on the scrambley bits but still made it. Sun came in over Newlands for several short breathers and picture moments. Once on the ridge the clag came in and for the next few hours visibility was poor to say the least. We made our way to the summit with no drama passing 2 lost woman on what we now know is the summit. Love this mountain and definitely one to come back too in clear weather.Scotty 2 Hotty20/10/2018

Coledale Horseshoe trail runmaaaaaaaatty18/07/2018
With Joanna. Rowling End:- Steep, tiring, hot, and horrible. We seen a tree though. Oh yeah, half a sheep's face too. As well as other bits of the same sheep laying about everywhere. Causey Pike:- Not sure if this was terrifying or exhilarating. Scar Crags:-Worth it. Such red. Wow. (The recent heat wave seems to have made all the plants red? It looked cool anyways.) Sail:- **** that path. The Rest:- We nearly ran out of water, so we decided to head back.. Then my GPS died, so I didn't log the last couple of miles. Awesome walk all in all. 11/10 would walk again.DAB8118/07/2018

Went on to do Scar Crag, Ard Crag, Knott Rigg, Robinson, Dale Head, High Spy, Maiden Moor, Catbells.NorthernWayfarer08/07/2018
Coldale Horseshoe challengeNicky29/06/2018
On annual 10 in 10 MS charity event from Swinside Inn. 16.5 miles and 6,500 feet of ascent (nice route but ridiculously expensive and not enough goes to the MS charity!) Circular walk first fell Causey Pike, last Maiden Moor with stop at Buttermere village for refreshments.Hillsidenick23/06/2018
With Grace, Dannie and Bethany. Sterted up over Barrow and up to Causey Pike. Harry got covered in actual shit when he ran off the path. Had to clean him in a river. Later found out that G&D threw away his harness! 5hrs: 12km; 800mByronHaywood10/06/2018
Parked at Braithwaite with Chris and did a circuit starting with Causey Pike then Scar Crags, Sail, Outerside and Barrow. Lovely day perfect walking weather. I forgot my walking boots and had to go up in trainers but it was reasonably dry and the route very safe. Climb up rocks onto top of Causey Pike but not as difficult as it looks to start with and worth doing the last few feet.karentracey12/05/2018

Nipped out as weather good to bag some more Wainwrights and picked up some Birketts and Synges too. Up onto Barrow, Stile End, Outerside, waded across High Moss and up the path to the col between Scar Crags and Sail, path up to Sail still an eyesore, strange cold winds kept blowing through then disappearing again, very strange, also wafts of warm air coming up from the dark heather on the sunny slopes below, right and up Scar Crags and then the exquisite ridge along to Causey Pike. Quick bite to eat and climbed down Causey and down toward Rowling End. Took a slip on wet slopey grass/mud and ended up on my butt covered in mud. Nice. Over Rowling End and back down to the car. 3 and 1/2 hours. Nice walk.Mark T04/04/2017
