from St John's in the Vale, via Old Coach RoadIanHHill24/01/2020
A fantastic day running Leg 2 of the Bob Graham with Brett and Mark. Cloudy throughout the day, with soft snow and some ice on the tops, visibility very poor, but not bad enough to need to take bearings. One missed top (Watsonís Dodd) so had to recip. Very tough section, out and back to Fairfield, wanted to give up! Jonesy ran out of water but decided not to mention this to us. 5hrs 41minutes for the leg, with a distance of 15.5 miles so not in the right ball park to take on the full challenge...yet. Cough head, great Dodd, Watsonís Dodd, stybarrow Dodd, raise, white side, helvellyn LM, Helvellyn, nethermost pike, dollywaggon pike, Fairfield, and seat sandal.Jim Baz17/11/2019

I set out from High Row at 6am in gorgeous sunshine. The midges were out though! After a navigational cockup I climbed High Brow from the South, which was a great viewpoint. The summits were clear of the valley inversion that was gradually rising. It was easy enough getting to Great Dodd. I visited all the high points before heading to a misty Calfhow Pike and a foggy Clough Head marked by the trig point. From the summit I headed East down grassy slopes to the Old Coach Road and the car. I saw nobody else on the hill. I saw plenty of Skylarks and Meadow Pipits along with a pair of Magpies and a vocal Dipper. A Vole was seen near Clough Heads summit shooting into his hole. Time 2 hours 40 for 9 miles.isabelle30/05/2018
