15 degrees, glorious weather with Miranda. Just enough cooling breeze. Via nice rocky ascent of Side Pike, then adventurous path bypassing the crags. Good to be on an unfrequented summit in the middle of such a busy area. Picked up the path marked on the 1:25,000 map from the tarn on the way back.Wycombe Wanderer07/09/2019
From Blea Tarn car park - Lingmoor Fell, Oakhow Crag, then Side Pike, followed by a cold pint in the ODG, which looks as though it has not changed since we were last there in the mid-80s. Fab!summitter25/04/2019

Blea Tarn car park - Lingmoor Fell - Oakhowe Crag - Side Pike - Blea Tarn.Mark Jackson15/08/2018
With Jenx, Bryher and Timmo. From high point of road by cattle grid to West of Side Pike, traversing path taken to south of SP and join ascending path to col. Good tracks to Lingmoor, then heather thrash but downhill to Oakhowe col and climb to top, excellent viewpoint for Langdale. More heather and bracken around to wall then down to col below the crags of Side Pike. Nice skirting path through the boulder squeeze to gain path to summit of Side Pike. Easily down to car, some good easy scrambling on a fine circuit.nordicstar23/08/2017

A landmark hill for me. One week into my 70th year and my final 400m English hill. This followed on from Tarn Crag, my final 500m summit. Still able to climb without any aches or pains, but for how long I wonder. Still plenty more 300m plus hills to go at now. On to my 80th birthday (I hope!!!)moorsman07/04/2017
A strange day emotionally being as this was my last day on the hills before my 60th birthday in a few days time. Six new DoBh summits in the bag on a wet and dreary day. So how do i fare for over 45 years of bashing the hills? Lots of aches and pains, especially when i try to get out of the car after driving home. Knees ok but the occasional twinge, niggles away. Arthritis in my ankles can make walking on stony ground quite painful. Fitness has dropped but i do like my beer and food. Having said that a five hour round trip today over difficult ground so things can't be that bad! Heres to the next decade and many more summits.thenomad10/01/2017
From Lingmoor Fell. Rough walk through deep snow and heather with Paul and Alf.Nice top great views Stunning day. A foot of snow on the fells from 800 foot. Wonder why Tim Synge missed this off his massive list?mick20/11/2016

Raced up Lingmoor and Oakhowe Crag whilst waiting for Fraser to arrive for the weekend. Met Abigail at the car park beforehand. Slid back down from Oakhowe and hopped a couple of walls to make it work.stevem7625/09/2014

Absent from Tim Synge's book presumably because the 30m ascent is debatable. Fine viewpoint.peebs17/10/2013
My girlfriend idled by the tarn while I quickly ran up this with a bit of a scramble up some of the rocks.Jake99404/06/2012
