Surprisingly only my third time up here because it's such a great hill. Solo. Went out to visit Tail Crag before returning to Park Head Road.Dangerous Dave19/11/2018
Followed Wainwrights guide. Very easy to find the quarry access track and was easy to navigate there on to the summit.Sham Sharrock24/10/2018

WOs 31,32 and 33. A wet morning and set off with Joyce in drizzle from Turner Farm campsite and followed W's route over Caw, Pikes and Green Pikes. Soon cleared up and sun came out with great views. Caught up a group of students near quarry but got slightly lost in the fields on the way down. Good route up, not so good down.BURGESS22/07/2017

AW's route over Caw, Pikes and Green Pike from Seathwaite. High winds nearly dislodged me from Caw's summit. A superb walk. Worth taking a look at the Glyder-like set of rock spikes North of the summit of Green Pike.Nick Down101/05/2017

7th of 12 hill circuit.Dusty08/11/2016
Walk up from ulpha via stickle pike. Cloudy, but no rain. Cloud levels varying. We ascended the west face but access is easier from the north west where there is an unmapped path/sheep track. Steep towards the end in any case!!MarkGD18/09/2016
Parked at Stephenson Ground which had not been let (Space for 4-5 cars alongside disused farm buildings) - NW up Long Mire bridleway to Brock Barrow & then picked way up through outcrops to the summit trig point. Continued to Pikes & Green Pikes. (PM)gerrybowes16/09/2016

Having orienteered over this fell on many occasions this proved to be my first ascent to the summit. Walked from the road head to the south. Good visibility and views.JohnW24/02/2016
Coniston Coppermines YH to Foxfield.Smudge10/10/2015
Walked from Seathwaite using Wainwright's Outlying Fells on my own. Bright spells of sunshine but very windy on the summit. I enjoyed the climb up this fell. Didn't go as far on the quarry path as Wainwright suggests. Got below the summit and found a steep path that brought me out at the trig point. Fantastic views from the summit but had to sit down to take them as the wind was so strong.flockwatcher26/08/2015
