Calf Top was reclassified from a 'Dewey' to a Mountain (Hewitt) and 'Nuttall' in September 2016. Formerly thought to be fractionally under the 609.6m (2000ft) required for mountain status, the Ordnance Survey recalculated the height of the mountain using the OSTN15/OSGM15 transformation to a height of 609.606m (2000ft and 1/4 inch)..

Margaret Richards walked up Calf Top on August 29th, 2018 [from/via/route] From Barbon [with] Don [weather] Misty at first, then sunny and clear - Great views

Caroline Winter climbed Calf Top on October 21st, 2017 [from/via/route] Short Gill Bridge in Barbondale via Hanging Stone to Calf Top [with] Becky [weather] Good visibility to Irish Sea, but low cloud over Crag Hill. Drizzle on return. High winds and gusts 40mph- SW - Saw 6 mice running into hides on the grsssy slope

Kevin Foster bagged Calf Top on August 15th, 2017 [from/via/route] Barbon [with] Henry [weather] Low cloud just covering summits with light rain morning. Clearing out and sunny afternoon. - The highlight of this walk for me, apart from climbing England's newest mountain at 2000ft and a 1/4 inch! was dropping down off the ridge to the lower cairn above Combe Scar for a late lunch break. You get a superb aerial view of the length of Dentdale. I could have sat there all day (and would have) if I didn't have to descend down Long Bank and then face a 5 mile walk along the Lune valley back to my car parked at Hodge bridge just outside Barbon village.

Trevor Williams hiked Calf Top on August 16th, 2017 [with] paul

Mark Davidson summited Calf Top on November 24th, 2002 [with] Mike [weather] Lovely November day with lots of sunshine

Christine Shepherd walked up Calf Top on October 4th, 2016 [from/via/route] Walked from Barbon using walk c339 but came down by the route of ascent as I didn't fancy the road walking. [with] On my own [weather] Sunny and bright but very, very windy. - I was surprised to find that a new mountain had appeared in the Yorkshire Dales list so it had to be climbed. So glad I took the time. This is a great mountain with superb long distance views.
