Mark Davidson walked up Bush Howe on June 8th, 2006 [from/via/route] Walk c347 The Howgill Fells 2000ft'ers [with] MK [weather] Sunny & dry - gorgeous!

Kevin Foster climbed Bush Howe on October 29th, 2017 [from/via/route] Fairmile gate to Sedbergh (linear route). [with] Peter, Hiruni and Henry. [weather] Sunny clear blue skies (cold northerly wind). - A steady walk up from Fairmile Gate on a track with easy gradients except for one steep climb at the end brought us onto the ridge line of the western Howgills just short of the summit of Fell Head. With most of the climbing done for the day & route finding made easy by the broad track running over the next three nuttalls Bush Howe, then The Calf & Calders before descending all the way into Sedbergh, it was time to stroll along on easy paths & take in the great views. A classic.
