Kirkby Stephen weekend. With Walking Group from Cross Keysclimbingkershaw24/09/2016
With Penda. From carpark near Fairmile Beck - where I wild-camped that night. Up to Linghaw col, then to Fell Head top, then on to Bush Howe and return over Fell Head and Linghaw top. 1500-1800, clear, cool, occasionally sunny. I did this as while my records showed I'd been over the top, I had no recollection of doing so. Not surprising as the top is far from memorable!beorwulf19/09/2016

Circular trip from Cross keyspetesimpson11/01/2016
Parked at Fairmile Gate west of Fell Head, followed small sheep paths and crossed brooks just above the field boundaries west of Howgills, got very wet crossing the raging torrent of Chapel Beck but got across and climbed up to Arant Haw (New one for me), followed ridges to Calders and The Calf (I last climbed these in 2005), then climbed over Bush Howe, ascended Fell Head, and descended over Linghaw (all new ones for me), quite cool weather because of high cloud. Great walk.DanTrig15/08/2015
