from Dale Head on BGR recce. Ascent 30IWC25/06/2018
From Dale Head we go see our Route to the summit of Hindscarth having now made the decision not to go on to Robinson as we were both completely exhausted to say the least. So we powered up to the top to find a lovely rocky summit with a great view of everything we had walked and achieved that day. Making our way down the thin ridge back to the car looking back on the Newlands round thinking how hard but how rewarding the day and week had been. Up and downs literally but we had done it. We made our way back to the camp site for becs mum and mick to arrive with Myla and Darren and tony before having a few beers at DG and a cracking BBQ. GREAT WEEKScotty 2 Hotty22/06/2018

Solo. To and from Dale Head. Excellent visibility to see all round (360degree) panorama. Really impressive vista. Summit itself has nothing to note.Statto14/03/2017
An absolutely fantastic round with superb ridges, tops, scrambles, ridge walking galore, great views all round, could see the see (blighted with wind turbines), had a bit of a cloud come through on Hindscarth but apart from that great walking weather. Went up the Hindscarth ridge from the Newlands Chapel, round onto Robinson and down the ridge from there back to the Chapel. Will definately do that route again sometime. Set off at 10 and down by 2.30Mark T01/02/2017

Newlands Horseshoe clockwise from Chapel Bridge at Little Town with Jim, Jus & Cat. Ridiculous winds - jumped at the Littledale Edge end, and landed on the summit a couple of seconds later. The only other party brave or foolhardy enough to have made it this far today headed down the ridge. We leant into the wind at an angle of 70 degrees and fought our way back down to Littledale Edge to continue to Robinson, with the wind attempting to turn our faces inside out.wheresthepath24/09/2016
