Other walkers who hiked, climbed, bagged and summited Clough Head Fellow go4awalkers who have already walked, climbed, summited & bagged Clough Head

Michael Nolan walked up on September 14th, 2022 [with] Morag [weather] lovely day - stupidly tried a shortcut alongside the rake....on point of asking to be rescued!

Christine Shepherd climbed on October 27th, 2010 [from/via/route] I walked from Red Moss using walk c176. [with] On my own [weather] showery but bright - This was my second attempt to bag Clough Head. The first was aborted in mist. Didn't really enjoy the long walk in before the ascent; probably better with others to chat to. Climbed again on 31.07.20 on a gloriously sunny day using walk c239 Repeated walk c239 on 27.07.2022 but walked further along the Old Coach Road before climbing up to Clough Head via White Pike. This was a much clearer & easier path than the one from Mariel Bridge.

Caroline Winter bagged on April 15th, 2022 [from/via/route] Parked on road to Threlkeld mining museum, track past Setmabanning caravan park, direct line up , Clough Head, return to to Great Dodd & descent of Clough Head towards Matterdale [with] Becky [weather] Warm & windy - Good Friday walk. Road past Setmabanning did not seem to correspond to my old OS map. After this straight forward. Found the direct acsent to Clough Head quite tough going

Richard Marchant hiked on September 16th, 2021 [from/via/route] I parked the car in St John's in the Vale & ascended Clough Head first via Wanthaite Bank from here carried on South along the ridge taking in Calfhow Pike, Great Dodd, Watson's Dodd, Stybarrow Dodd then down to Sticks Pass & up to Raise from here I back tracked down to Sticks Pass. I proceeded down to Stybeck Farm along the A591 & ascended High Rigg on the way back to the car. [with] By Myself. [weather] Light Cloud with a light Breeze to start with, then late morning the clouds broke & blessed with Sunny intervals - 6 Wainwrights Bagged today making my total to date climbed to 107 I have reached the halfway point today.

Clare Tait summited on July 25th, 2021 [from/via/route] From High Row car park taking in Clough Head [with] Charlie [weather] Warm, blue sky, great walking weather. Perfect. - No 64 Wainwright. Stayed in Glenridding & set off early as had been advised parking is limited. Set off at 8. Perfect! No boggy ground as it had dried out, only soft grass until the old coach road which went on seemingly for ever. The horseflies were evil though & Charlie got three bites!

Julie Hill conquered on July 8th, 2021 [from/via/route] Dockray [with] Dave Hill & Isla [weather] Foggy

Richard Marshall scaled on June 6th, 2021 [from/via/route] Deepdale Round [with] Steve and Roxy [weather] Cloudy/Sunny warm

Claire Kirk walked up on October 17th, 2020 [from/via/route] Red Moss Car Park [with] Phil [weather] Very cloudy. Cold & windy to start

Adrian Howard climbed on August 30th, 2013 [from/via/route] Hilltop farm, St John's in the Vale

David Butterfield bagged on November 24th, 2019 [from/via/route] Wanthwaite [weather] Mist
