Started at 9am after eventually locating path behind cottages. Very steep ascent in muggy conditions with occasional heavy shower. Relieved to reach summit after 1 hour. Grass so wet I slid nearly all the way down. Great views over Ullswater but won't repeat.Peak Rambler30/07/2019

Tempted to leave this one since it was dark but also reluctant as it was only 45 m ascent and so close. Couldn't resist taking a look and quickly found good path most of the way up.vegibagger19/01/2019

Walked from helvellyn yha in summer 2018, forecast to get worse throughout day however it was the complete opposite, and got drenched walking and sunny weather when we got back!Joel45108/08/2018
Glenridding Dodd, Heron Pike & Sheffield Pike - up and back from Glenridding car park via The Rake. High temperatures made the steep climb even harder work, although it was still worth it for the stunning views from all three summits. Justin got attached by flies on Glenridding Dodd and stomped off in a huff, flailing his walking pole like a madman.wheresthepath25/06/2018

Started in glenridding following the path up to the YHA then taking a right path next to the mines. This follows the water up and you cross to ascend to Sheffield pike. Foot paths and eady route to follow. Then over onto glenridding Dodd....some small sections on this path needed care. The acsent to Glenridding Dodd is a nice easy path and clear summit.Zoe Little07/05/2018

Glenridding 10:00. 25 degrees (!) After not much sleep in a field by The Struggle. My out of date map shows path to east of Blaes Crag, not west, but I sniffed it out. Delightful* after initial toil. On to Heron Crag. *Pondered why only walking-guide writers and classical music critics use the word 'delightful'.Wycombe Wanderer18/07/2017
11.8 mile walk in very hot and sunny weather from Patterdale hotel car park (Cheaper then excessive Glenridding car park), walked along road into Grisedale and took path up hillside to Hole-in-the-wall, out and back to Birkhouse Moor, onto Striding Edge bagging High Spying How (small scramble to summit), down little trail to beautiful Red Tarn, up path to Swirral Edge turning back to Catstye Cam, down terribly lose path east from summit, and onto main path descending to near the Youth Hostel west of Glenridding, slogged in heat up Sticks Pass path then turned back following little trails to Sheffield Pike, then along neat little trail down to col, easily bagged Glenridding Dodd, descended to Glenridding and back along paths by road to Patterdale, great end to lovely 3 days in the Lake District bagging 22 hills and mountains.DanTrig19/06/2017
