I started off small - very small it was Orrest Head  :P  I'm not sure its officially a Wainwright in its own right, but I know it gets a mention by him in the relevant book, failing that then the next was Helm Crag.....I started at the bottom and continue working up  :D !!!

Can't remember dates of the many earlier ones but the ascent that I logged as the first of my Wainwright-bagging round was Scafell Pike from Brackenclose (via the tourist route).

My first one was Catbells and my most recent one was High Rigg.  My highest one was Blencathra and the one I liked the least was Latrigg.
 
The only ones that I have earmarked for bagging are Helvellyn (cos I like the name) and Scafell Pike (cos it's the highest in England).
No expense spared in pursuit of a bargain ;)

My first was Gowbarrow Fell on a walk around the Aira Force waterfall.

I didn't start walking in the Lake District until my big trip from mid April to mid June in 2012. My first Wainwright I suppose would have been Catbells, and carried on over Maiden Moor and High Spy. Knocked a few off during those two months though.


I don't even possess a list of them all  :-[

I was thinking Orrest Head would be, but as it doesn't appear to be listed, it would have to be Scafell Pike. Most recent is Binsey (done in the rain and fog this morning)

Bowfell my very first at the tender age of 16 (nearly 36 years ago), most recently Blencathra and soon to be added Skiddaw and Little Man.
Not a complete idiot, bits of me are missing.

My first was Low Fell, fantastic views and my last was Blencathra a few weeks ago. Went up on Monday afternoon and saw hardly a soul - bliss!

From when I started recording my first Wainwright was Pavey Ark in Great Langdale.
(although I am aware I went up Loughrigg Fell when I was about 7 years old...)

Mine too, snap.
Did you go up by Jacks Rake?
Over hill, over dale. Thorough brush, thorough brier....
I do wander every where
