Setting off around 5.30 we had our 1st big day since January. Having drove through a cloud inversion on Kirkstone pass we park on the layby near the White Lion pub and set off. I briefly had to return to the car for my phone and we set off again. Following the path through Glenamarra park and up to the col Thornend how on Birks we skirted along the side of Birks. This was tough going on legs that just weren’t used to this anymore. we plodded on reaching the final huge ascent. Again taking our time and a few false summits later we made it to the top. there we sat, ate (I slept) and took in the staggering views. We were half in the clouds half out. Was so perfect and atmospheric. We returned the same way stopping and watching a stunning red deer for some time before getting back to the car and home for a battered sausage fish chips and peas. Fantastic day.Scotty 2 Hotty18/06/2020

Solo from Birks. Met a few walkers who had turned back and started to descend as wind on top was too strong. Carried ascending. Just a couple of times up to top was on hands and knees due to the wind blowing a hoolie! No cover up there on the path route. Really breezy at top, sheltered behind cairn and ate late lunch. Expected the Hause to be far worse with regard to wind but it wasn't. Descended to Grisedale Tarn then returned to Glenridding via Patterdale route. Journey raining from tarn onwards.Statto24/03/2019

It was an early start from Glenridding. I parked for £3 in the Sports field and headed up the lane, before turning left to the path up to Birks. There were still Bluebells out and the views down to Ullswater were superb as there was a thin layer of mist in the valley. It was a slog to the summit of Birks before it became easier to St Sunday Crag. Nice to have it to myself on this summit and the views were stunning. I descended to Deepdale Hause and cut around Grisedale Tarn to the steep climb to Seat Sandal. The views West were great in the soft rather misty light all the main peaks were a dark silhouette against the milky sky. I headed north and straight up the wall to the cairn at the edge of the cliffs on Dollywaggon Pike. It was then an easy walk over Nethermost Pike and on to the summit of Helvellyn where I had 5 minutes on my own. I continued along Striding Edge which was much easier than I imagined with no difficulties to the summit of High Spying How.isabelle01/06/2018
