Margaret Richards walked up Calders on October 25th, 2018 [from/via/route] c307 The Calf from Sedbergh [with] Don [weather] Very misty

Kevin Foster climbed Calders on September 19th, 2017 [from/via/route] The Cross Keys, Cautley [with] Diana and Henry [weather] Cloudy (Sunny in the breaks), no rain. - As we approached along the valley towards the waterfalls of Cautley Spout I thought to myself "I can't remember it being this steep". However, there is now a well engineered path which climbs up the right hand side of the waterfalls which, although steep, is a relatively easy climb. The stunning views of the waterfalls on your left more than compensate for the steep climbing. Soon we were crossing the stream above the falls to follow the path hugging the cliffs of Cautley Crag, with very impressive drops below and to the East. The best view of the day for me was from the top of Great Dummacks (end of Cautley Crag) looking back along the crags towards Bowderdale Head. From here it was a fairly level trudge over slightly boggy ground to the summit of Calders. Unfortunately, everywhere else was bathed in glorious sunlight whilst we were under a black cloud which made it feel pretty cold at times.However, spirits were well and truly lifted by the views South, Pen-Y-Ghent was particularly prominent, and West towards Morecambe Bay and the Irish Sea.
