Fellow go4awalkers who have already walked, climbed, summited & bagged Black Fell (Haresceugh Fell)
Caroline Winter walked up on August 19th, 2021 [from/via/route] A686/Hartside Cross CP, fence line to Black Fell [with] Becky [weather] Drizzly, low cloud on top - CP Great spot of surrounding landscape & road a bikers paradise. Straight forward walk to reach top
Kevin Foster climbed on May 15th, 2018 [from/via/route] Thack Moor (Renwick Fell) [with] Henry [weather] Sunny (more cloudy later) - I loved this next section of the walk along the ridge eastwards over the 'minor' summit of Watch Hill & on towards Black Fell. There was such a feeling of 'open space', the walking on grass was fairly easy & the views particularly to the SW of the Lakeland skyline were just superb. Elsewhere Cross Fell, Cold Fell & Grey Nag stood out & I could even make out Criffell in Scotland across the Solway Firth.
Christine Shepherd bagged on March 5th, 2017 [from/via/route] Walked from Hartside Cafe using walk c337. [with] On my own [weather] A fine spring day - I walked up Grey Nag & Tom Smith's Stone Top using walk 114 but decided not to continue across the bog to this fell. I drove to Hartside & walked straight up from there. I am so glad I did. The path was good, route finding easy & to top it all I watched the sun set over snow capped Lakeland peaks on the way down.
Darren Mortimer hiked on February 27th, 2016 [from/via/route] Renwick [with] Dermot Palmer
Mark Davidson summited on March 23rd, 2007 [with] alone [weather] Bright & sunny - lovely summers day - Loved it (loved it!)
Iain Taylor conquered on September 3rd, 2012 [from/via/route] Hartside Cross (NY 64640 41858)
Ray O'hara has scaled [from/via/route] From Grey Nag & Tom Smith's Stone Top [weather] Overcast - The bog on the ridge between Tom Smith's Stone & Black Fell is by far the worst that I have ever encountered. The ridge from High Seat to High Tove that Alfred Wainwright wished on his worst enemy is a walk in the park by comparison. Do this one in winter when the ground is frozen, not at the end of the wettest summer on record.
Matthew Thomas and Trevor Williams have both walked, climbed & bagged Black Fell (Haresceugh Fell).
