Out and back from Gatesgarth to Ennerdale Bridge. VERY wet so route up Haystacks was just a continual hike up a waterfall. Found the scramble to the top and repeated fake summits hard in the rain.Fionalevey27/07/2020

15th 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
From Buttermere. Dodd, Red Pike, High Stile (both tops), High Crag, Seat, Haystacks & Green Crag. Dry and breezy with good views. Thought I'd climbed this before but don't appear to have a record of it, so climbed it today to make sure.alistairpooler14/07/2018
