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

Victoria Bates walked up on May 12th, 2017 [from/via/route] Glenridding

Kevin Foster climbed on October 24th, 2019 [from/via/route] Patterdale [with] By myself. [weather] Blue skies cloud developing later on Striding Edge and Helvellyn. - The route I took was a new approach for me; leaving the 'hole in the wall' track which leads direct to Striding Edge I followed a minor path to the right climbing to the wall running over Birkhouse Moor. A hidden stile negotiated this substantial structure. Good job I didn't bring Henry though. Lugging a 30 Kg Labrador over that would have been hard work. Near the top of the final climb I encountered a couple in their golden years ( he was a sprightly 79) who asked me the way to Striding Edge! They had previously climbed Cat Bells and The Dodd and thought they would have a go on Striding Edge. They quickly changed their minds when I pointed it out and said it was a scramble not a walk. In the end I think they headed for a lunch stop at Red Tarn before descending back down the main path to Glenridding.

Richard Marchant bagged on October 28th, 2010 [from/via/route] From Glenridding up on to Birkhouse Moor to Striding Edge-Helvellyn-Swirl Edge-Catstye Cam down to Red Tarn up to the Hole in the Wall and followed the footpath down in to Grisedale and cut back up to Lanty's Tarn and down to the car in Glenridding. [with] My oldest son James. [weather] Overcast but dry and the cloud level was above Helvellyn, also very light winds. - First time for James on Striding Edge.

John Tippins hiked on October 27th, 2018 [from/via/route] Started from Glenridding car park. Walk c220 from go4awalk.com [with] Solo [weather] Very sunny all day but biting northerly wind - wind chill minus 11. Was quite warm in sheltered spots - if you can find any on the way up Helvellyn.

Nick Dobson summited on March 23rd, 2019 [from/via/route] Glenridding via Mires Beck [with] Margaret, & Ralph [weather] bright but chilly day with patches of snow on route, great views of a snow covered Helvelyan. - First Wainwright of 2019, that's 130 done now hopefully a decent year with the weather can see a good reduction in the remaining 84.

Andrew Peate conquered on October 31st, 2018 [from/via/route] From Grisedale Bridge [weather] Cloudy then wet and windy

Christine Shepherd scaled on June 13th, 2009 [from/via/route] Walked from Glennridding. [with] On my own [weather] Bright and sunny - Took a detour to bag this summit while friends had a break at 'The Hole in The Wall'. Climbed it again on 25.9.10 at the start of a brilliant day's walking using walk c264.

Christina Lander walked up on June 5th, 2018 [from/via/route] Glenridding - Birkhouse Moor - Helvellyn - Helvellyn Lower Man - White Side - Raise - Sticks Pass - Nick Head - Sheffield Pike - Glenridding Dodd - Glenridding [with] Dick [weather] A perfect sunny day on the high fells
