Other walkers who hiked, climbed, bagged and summited Allen Crags Fellow go4awalkers who have already walked, climbed, summited & bagged Allen Crags

Stephanie Doyle walked up on September 18th, 2021 [from/via/route] Car park

Claire Kirk climbed on August 16th, 2021 [from/via/route] Seatoller National Trust Car Park [with] Phil [weather] Dull, drizzle - Walk cut short due to fire at home!

Wayne Baxter bagged on August 16th, 2021 [from/via/route] From Seathwaite followed the path through farm to Stockley bridge. Around Greenhow Knott & pick up a faint path to Seathwaite Fell. Onto Sprinkling Tarn & up Great End. From Great End across to Allen Crags & then onto Glaramara. We picked up a path by Hind Gill (not recommended very steep & rocky). Back to Seathwaite farm [with] Sue, Steven and Bev [weather] Cloudy & some rain

Paul Talbot-Greaves hiked on July 29th, 2021 [from/via/route] Seatoller [with] Paul Drury and Andy Bailey [weather] Rain most of day. High winds & low cloud with poor visibility on tops. Difficult terrain & challenging navigation. Soaked...even boots on inside.

Chris Sheard summited on July 12th, 2021 [from/via/route] Along from Glaramara [with] George [weather] Slight winds still sweaty, top clear - Nice top, with impressive views Lovely views to GG & across Esk Hause

Christina Lander conquered on June 6th, 2021 [from/via/route] Seathwaite - Base Brown - Seathwaite Fell - Allen Crags - Seathwaite [with] Dick [weather] Some cloud but mostly a lovely, sunny day & very warm - During our holiday at Station House, Troutbeck, Penrith

Kevin Foster scaled on June 1st, 2021 [from/via/route] Seathwaite. [with] By myself. [weather] Sunny & Hot. - There were too many tops visited on this walk to give a full description of each one. The route of the walk roughly followed the Sty Head Tarn path via Stockley Bridge, then as the path levelled off a steep ascent up the flanks of Seathwaite Fell to reach Wainwright's Top, then the true summit (Main Top) followed by a subsidiary top (South Top). The route then went past Sprinkling Tarn & climbed to Esk Hause (not the true one) before turning left & climbing to the summit of Allen Crags. Numerous tops were then visited along the undulating & interesting ridge including Glaramara & Rosthwaite Fell before descending off the ridge by dropping left at Tarn at Leaves into the ravine of Rottenstone Gill (not as bad as it sounds!). On reaching the lane to Thorneythwaite another left turn down a tarmac road & across field paths eventually led me back to the car parked at Seathwaite. Another tiring but superb day in The Lakes. I do feel as though I am saving the best until last with these Western & Southern Fells?

Darren Wilson walked up on May 2nd, 2021 [from/via/route] Rosthwaite, Glaramara, Allen Crags & Seathwaite [with] With Mike [weather] Beautiful day

Richard Marshall climbed on September 20th, 2020 [from/via/route] From Sea Toller [with] Bo [weather] Warm Sunny/Cloudy

Caroline Winter bagged on August 29th, 2020 [from/via/route] Seathwaite, Stockly bridge, Sty Gill, Seathwaite Fell (3 cairns), Sprinkling Tarn, Allen Crags, Red Beck Top, Glaramara, Hind Gill, Seathwaite [with] Becky [weather] Warm day. 11 degrees on tops. Light wind. Very good views - Wise to ascend the gill to Seathwaite Fell, as difficult to spot access point from above. Lunch stop at shelter before Allen Crags & continuing to find the actual summit cairns amongst others placed on Red Beck Top & Glaramara. Confusion coming off Glaramara, as strayed off path & veering off to the east too early. Difficult descent of Hind Gill. Mountain rescue & Air rescue on Great End crags
