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

Chris Graham walked up on September 28th, 2022 [from/via/route] Whinlatter Centre to Barf Fell & Lords Seat. [with] Wife [weather] Sunny & fresh breeze - Could I point out that the direction in Whinlatter forest is a bit obscure?. At Postion 8 on the map ,the path should indicate Barf Fell to the right ; if you carry straight on it will lead you up to Lords Seat. Personally I find this the better route as the other to Barf Fell is really "boggy".

Ian Ashton climbed on September 17th, 2022 [with] Jph

Clare Tait bagged on August 11th, 2022 [from/via/route] Parked opposite Swan Hotel. Took route which avoids "The Bishop" [with] Charlie [weather] Very warm & sunny. Needed to commence the route early to avoid the heat. - Our no 82 Wainwright. Completed with Lords Seat. Wasn't feeling the love for this hill in the heat. Steep path with loose material. Bit of a slippy scramble over a very small ghyll. Flying ants & insects everywhere.

Paul Macey hiked on July 29th, 2022 [from/via/route] C183 [with] Luke [weather] Sunny intervals/high cloud

David Butterfield summited on July 3rd, 2022 [from/via/route] Scawgill Bridge [weather] Changeable - Very boggy!

Richard Marchant conquered on April 27th, 2022 [from/via/route] Parked at Scawgill Bridge & went straight up Graystones & continued North to Ling Fell. From here I dropped down in to Eskin & up on to Sale Fell then returned Southwards to Old Scales Farm & worked my way up on to Broom. Traversed to Lord's seat & a quick out & back to Barf. From here I went around Ullister Hill & up on to Whinlatter Top on to Brown How & back down to the car.

Richard Fulcher scaled on March 15th, 2022 [from/via/route] Parked at the Whinlatter visitor centre & walked steadily up through the Beckstone Plantation woods up to Barf.

[with] Jen [weather] Cold, bright day - strong winds on the tops. - We should have polished off Whinlatter fell maybe?
