Day 33/40 of my Wainwright Challenge linking all 214 Wainwrights in one walk taking 40 days to mark my 70th Birthday. Today, with Adam and Graham, over the grassy hills Back O'Blencathra and Skiddaw from Apronful of stones to High Side, visiting to High Side, visiting Carrock Fell, Miton Fell, High Pike, Knott, Great Calva, and Little Calva. 19km with 1060m ascent taking 7h 30m.Alan_70+21/06/2024
with Tammy, Fudge, and Truffle. Ascent via Rake Trod, on to High Pike.Hippo29/03/2024
Today myself and Alma Aurea had a circular walk from Nether Row (Caldbeck). We climbed High Pike 658m, Hare Stones 627m, Drygill Head 622m, Miton Hill 607m, Round Knott 603m, Carrock Fell 662.3m and down via West Fell 511m. Cloudy early on clearing to full sun halfway and great views. /Dmeltdiceburg02/09/2023
Route 1 from the marvellously named apronful of stones. Possibly not the best decision I ever made. I feel the lack of oxygen tanks at the top may need looking into. But Boo and I made it. Funnily enough it was never in doubt for one of us.Alphaville19911/08/2023

A revisit to Carrock Fell and High Pike taking in all the surrounding Birketts and Synges, some of which I may have previously summitted before I recorded peaks. Parked on the moorland road near Calebreck, then followed the rough road up by Carrock Beck, before ascending Red Gate to the ridge to Carrock Fell, taking in Miton Hill and Round Knott en route. Then west to Drygill Head, and along a charming minor track over Hare Stones, Great Lingy Hill, and Miller Moss, before rougher country to Little Lingy Hill. Back to below Hare Stones before considerable descent to Birk Hill and re-ascent to High Pike. Then easy going back to Calebreck via West Hill. 19km with 800m ascent in just under 6 hours.silverwolf_alan14/05/2023

Nuttall 1.3 Parked at the end of the surfaced road leading to Carrock Mine. Nuttalls' 'grassy slopes providing an easy ascent' have been taken over by 6' high bracken, so the first part was more like hacking through wet jungle. Then Carrock Fell > High Pike > Knott > Great Calva and back beside the River Caldew.Peter_W_Mitchell 03/09/2021
