Sarah Wild walked up Armboth Fell on October 3rd, 2023 [from/via/route] Thirlmere road [with] Barney [weather] Sun & cloud - 4 today

Kevin Whelan climbed Armboth Fell on August 21st, 2023 [from/via/route] Used c318 from Armboth Car Park. Due to the partial closure around Thirlmere it took 3 attempts to find a road to get us there. Couldn't find the route through Fishercrag plantation so took the route to Watenladh next to it. Once past the treeline we cut across to Armboth Fell. [with] Charlie [weather] Showery & overcast - Very boggy as warned. The lack of clear paths was to become a theme of the day. By the time we had got to High Seat it turned truly biblical & after failing to locate Bleaberry Fell we beat a retreat to Thirlmere.

Dan Collins bagged Armboth Fell on July 30th, 2023 [from/via/route] As part of c318 walk [with] Family (just the lads) [weather] Overcast & rainy - Very boggy & marshy on the top ridge. My right leg vanished into a bog at one point, much to the amusement of the kids. Descent from Raven crag is steep, & generally the main part of the walk was hard to navigate with limited pathways (I assume partly based on the extent of rain recently)

Geoff Hand hiked Armboth Fell on July 7th, 2023 [from/via/route] Nipped out to Watendlath on Friday afternoon & climbed up to High Tove, Armboth fell & back down to the farm very nice. Exciting drive to Watendlath. Must be one of the most remote NT spots around. Good to pick thse up after missing them earlier in the year. [weather] Warm muggy day.

Steve Lucas summited Armboth Fell on October 18th, 2020 [with] On my own

Climbed again on 23.9.19 & while trying to bag Bell Crags which I succeeded in doing two days later. Climbed again 21-04-21 on an eventful day which ended with a broken arm. Climbed again on 03.12.2022 I was delighted to take a direct route to this fell from the Armboth Carpark without getting my feet wet!
