On Bannisdale Horseshoe. I wasn't sure about bothering with this top but the best trods from the wall stile at 51660181 went towards it and there was a very good path off to the stepped wall stile to continue the walk. Good view of Longsleddale and Ill Bell ridge.pwheeler01/03/2022
From Whiteside pike it was the simple pathless route to the next. Few stones marked the summitScotty 2 Hotty24/07/2021

Most of the Bannisdale Horseshoe: Todd Fell - Capplebarrow - Swinklebank Crag - Ancrow Brow - Bannisdale Horseshoe - Bannisdale Fell - White Howe - The Forest. From Dryhowe Bridge, farm has created parking for 2-3 cars just through a gate (NY 5308 0181). 8 miles in wind and rain - surprisingly met some fellow Hill-bagging chappies getting wet like me!jonglew04/10/2018

Bannisdale horseshoe 9th of 10Alan Caine29/08/2017
WOs 98-104; Bs 83-90. A lovely sunny day so went for the Bannisdale horseshoe which proved much easier than W suggests because of good paths most of the way. Joyce with me up Whiteside Pike, then sunbathed as the rest too boring and picked me up at Dryhowe Bridge. Good path on to Todd Fell, Capplebarrow and nameless top but bad bog before and after Long Crag (summit beyond wall) and rough tussocks down from The Forest and over Lamb Pasture. Shoulder high bracken descending directly from Lamb Pasture to Dryhowe Bridge. A very satisfying day for 9 WOs and 8 Bs.BURGESS13/08/2017
