Round of skiddaw Dodd, Carl Side, long side, ullock Pike, skiddaw, little man, Lonsdale and Latrigg. Nice warm day, with plenty sunshine near the end.Mountainhikes19/06/2019
Final summit of 6 lesser Wainwrights climbed on a day when I left the West Midlands at 0730. Better route / summit than I expected (and a geocache near top too!) Knackered after around 4,800 ft of ascent & similar descent in 7 hours.signyred23/05/2019
With DW from the forestry car park on a very wintry day for May. Fresh snow on Carlside 100m above us when the cloud lifted. Out and back in 2hrs. We're getting better at this.nukeboy109/05/2019

Solo. Surprisingly long walk down from Carl Side. Forest path up to top was winding and again surprisingly long. Descent from top of Dodd north path went though small avenues through broken branches and thickly woven trees. Tough but thoroughly enjoyable and took an age to get through and down to road.Statto25/03/2019
Parked in a large entrance to a forestry track. There were no parking signs on one side but not the other. I interpreted this that it was ok to the park on the other side. Followed various tracks and paths to the summit. With JT and HT.Sprog23/03/2019
Ascended from Millbeck, where there is a small parking place at the start of the public footpath. The path is still diverted higher up on to forest roads, but most of the trees in the area have now been clear felled. A popular hill with most ascents from the FC carpark.JohnW04/03/2019
Clear blue skies, hazey views across to Borrowdale, Newlands Valley etc. Temps in high teens!Kachemak Lou26/02/2019
Millbeck-Lyzzick Wood-Dodd-White Stones-Millbeck. Closed 16 months ago for felling, but all open today. The path to Long Doors appeared clear through the felled area but this looked devastated so I used forest roads via NY243269. The trees by the roads were still standing with felled areas below so this gave really good views.pwheeler24/02/2019
A morning ascent before the forecast poor weather. Waymarked trail to the top with great views below the cloud across Derwent Water and Bassenthwaite. With NP & JKkenmorti26/01/2019

From P @ NY235281. Many paths/tracks closed with forestry ops.summitsup08/06/2018
We descended Carl Side & took a right at the white stones to head towards Dodd. To be honest we were feeling a bit sunburnt & leg weary by this point, particularly my pregnant wife! But we dug in & tackled our final climb of the day to summit Dodd, through the pleasant woodland that surrounds it. We even spotted a deer. After a bit of navigational confusion due to the forestry work, we made it down to the comfort of Lyzzick Hall, & a well earned swim, dinner & sleep!AmyYoung23/05/2018
Up and down from near Dodd Wood car park. Sunny day with good clear views and some ospreys as well.Fell_wanderer16/05/2018

after coming down the front of carl side towards Keswick we headed for Dodd although very tired and flagging. we stopped for 5 mins on a bench just before the last climb to the summit of Dodd through the pine trees along a straight forward path. From the bench we got to the summit very quickly to be greeted by yet again amazing 360 degree views. After 5 mins or so we headed back down the back and onto the road through the woods which led straight back to the car. snowed on the way down and even though we had a road this was the end of a very tough day in the fells so a few drinks round Keswick I think we deserved. I got recognised in the wainwrights but before stopping and the dog and gunn and watching music in oddfellows. stopped off down and alley way on the way back to the hotel to have the perfect ending to the perfect dayScotty 2 Hotty06/01/2018
