Parked on the Fell Road after work and crossed Blakely Moss to approach Grike from the West. Left the summit heading East for Crag Fell.Theianwood45803/07/2019
Parked at the lower car park for a 28 mile circular walk. First I climbed Grike (488m), across to Lank Rigg (541m), Whoap (511m), and Crag Fell (522m) before descending back to the lake via the Crag Fell Pinnacles and Angler's Crag. From there completed the full loop of Ennerdale as far as Black Sail Hut and finished with a climb up Bowness Knott (333m).meltdiceburg23/06/2019
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME…Waking up on Cold fell road we had a great sleep undisturbed by people, cars and horses. We set off heading around Blakely Raise onto the forestry track. Seeing Grike it looked miles and miles away however this was nice and gradual through the cooling pine forest listening to Cuckoo’s and taking it easy. Very soon we came out of the forest and the only steep bit was in front. We made our way to the stile what we thought was half way up the incline only to take about 3 steps further up to see the summit. Very very impressive summit huge cairn with views out to see and over to Scotland. Really lovely first birthday walk of the day and not too strenuous. Crag fell the next target but was very much in sight. Off we head after a quick drink.Scotty 2 Hotty19/06/2019

Parked at NY063130. With Anne Bellarby. Walked up road eastwards to bend in road, then on a path aiming for Lank Rigg. Followed a path not shown on OS maps somewhat to the north. Changed objective and went up SSW slopes to summit of Grike, partly through an area of felled forest. Nice weather and excellent views of Lakeland hills, Isle of man and SW Scotland. Returned westwards on path, track and path to road – a much better route than our outward route.pwbellarby13/08/2017
