Margaret Richards walked up Birks Fell on September 27th, 2018 [from/via/route] Horsehead and Birks Fell from Buckden [with] Don [weather] sunny and windy up top - interesting ridge walking, excellent views but very boggy in parts

Kevin Foster climbed Birks Fell on July 16th, 2017 [from/via/route] Yockenthwaite (Horse Head Pass) [with] By myself (and Henry my Labrador) [weather] Hot and Sunny (but with a pleasant cool breeze on the tops). - I took a bearing South off the top and soon came upon a stone hut and then even a path! The views were very impressive on the steep descent into Langstrothdale, and across at my next objective Birks Fell. I'd done the approach route via the Horse Head Pass and also the path descending back to Redmire farm near Hubberholme many times when I've crossed to Littondale and back, but the crossing of Birks Fell following the summit wall was new to me. The book describes an easy couple of miles walking to the small cairn signifying the summit of this extensive fell, and a further mile walking beyond that to the descent path. However, do not underestimate this part of the walk, the walking is very rough and boggy and the fell is huge. The number of fences and walls leading away from the summit wall are off putting and I was constantly having to check my position (grid reference) on the map to make sure I was still on the route. I wouldn't recommend this walk in mist or after a prolonged spell of rain. On a positive note the views North to Buckden Pike and Great Whernside and South to Fountains Fell and Pen-Y-Ghent were superb.

Tony Rogerson bagged Birks Fell on October 5th, 2014 [from/via/route] Arncliffe & Litton [with] John & Floss [weather] High Cloud

Difficulty spotting B Fell Summit. Fallen stone cairn paced from stone wall amongst higher peat Groughs, so guess that was it. My feet touched the higher Peat, just in case!
