Caution:Danger of drowning I had my poles with me which were invaluable for spreading my weight and prodding the bogs but despite that I stood on some firm grass which broke off and deposited me waist deep in 3 degree water.... Then a bit later my left pole went in vertically so fast and deep, above the grip, I let go of it to avoid following it in. I had to use my second pole as a fishing rod to hook the wrist loop on the first pole. i won't be going there again!David Bell05/02/2020

Followed the fence line down over The Pewits and tried to avoid the boggy sections to High Tove summit. Very wetlands and unclear paths due to the boggy sections. With Richie and MB.Zoe Little22/09/2019
Got up an hour late so set off about 5:30 heading straight to Watendlath via a poo stop in Rosthwaite. Park at the national trust car park and headed straight up the direct route to High Tove. At 1st felt good but soon my fitness levels where showing and the summit never seem to appear. However wasn’t too long before we were at the top. very simple straight forward wainwright from this direction.Scotty 2 Hotty21/07/2019

A great run out on the fells. Started from Keswick in glorious sunshine and this remained throughout. Dry underfoot pretty much and not as bad as I expected. The peaks were also pretty busy, people had clearly decided to try and bag these peaks in drier conditions. Great fun. Walla crag, Bleaberry Fell, High stile, High tove, armboth fell, middle crag, and castle cragJim Baz17/04/2019

Circular walk from Armboth Carpark, Thirlmere. Had to drive around as the Dam wall/road was closed for works. Armboth onto High Tove. High Seat then Bleaberry Fell. Decided against dropping down to Walla Crag as it would have put too much onto an already long day [left home at 0500 and started walking at 1100!]. I wouldn`t walk this route in the summer as it would be far too boggy. Fortunately I was able to walk over most of the bog as it was frozen. Some patches were defrosting as I found out the hard way! Finished in the dark, however the permissible path along the west shore of Thirlmere was spot on!Butty12/01/2018
