Richard Marchant summited on August 9th, 1986 [from/via/route] We parked at Tilberthwaite ascended Wetherlam then Black Sail and on to Swirl How-Swirl Band-Brim Fell then on to The Old Man of Coniston. Once up the top I can remember us jogging down the main path straight in to Coniston then the long slog along the road back to the car at Tilberthwaite was a nightmare and seem to take ages [with] Nick Harker and Chris Aylen [weather] A fine dry day with no cool breeze and too much sunshine - I remember this being a long long walk on a very hot day and seem to take an eternity to complete and too much road walking at the end to get back to the car.
