SeferixA 'Mountaineers Mountain'  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 3, 2012


Summit 6 times so far (5 of which were over Sharp Edge - which is my opinion is the best ridge in Lakeland). Cloudy Day on the 3rd July 2012, rained, windy - no Sharp Edge that time! All previous ascents were in clear dry weather. Would not recommend in poor weather!

Date Climbed: Mar 24, 2008


On a snowy day in the cold snap at the end of march 2008. Would have liked to have gone up Sharp Edge but the normal route was more prudent with Jake, our then 5 year old golden retriever.
In a previous life back in the late 1980's I once flew off this mountain on a paraglider.

Date Climbed: Dec 20, 2009


Climbed in howling winds driving the snow into our faces. Route from Threlkeld. My iPhone died as it wasn't resilient to the wind chill. The experience was worth every penny.

The ascent of Halls fell ridge and descent of Sharp Edge is a classic or the other way round too.

Date Climbed: Jan 23, 2010


Pen wanted to sample some classic Lake District terrain in winter so on our first day there (1/23/10) we scrambled up the Sharp Edge on Blencathra. From the top of the ridge, we followed the descent line SW to Knowe Crags, then sharply South and East contouring back to our car at Scales Car Park. The undisputed crux of the day was downclimbing the short wet wall before crossing the creek by Doddick Fell! Wonderful circuit, clear, beautiful day. The Edge is as slick as they say...

Up Sharp Edge, down Hall's Fell Ridge as far as I remember, with my Irish mate Colm, after scrambling Scaffell and Scafell Pike the day before.
