Other walkers who hiked, climbed, bagged and summited Crag Fell Fellow go4awalkers who have already walked, climbed, summited & bagged Crag Fell

Caroline Winter walked up on September 1st, 2020 [from/via/route] Ennerdale water Bleach car park, Anglers Crag, Crag Fell, Iron Crag, return to Crag fell, Ben Gill [with] Becky [weather] Very good views. Warm day 12 degrees on tops - Easier ascent is Ben Gill. Long walk along wall line to Iron crag. Had to retract to gate in wall to cross to west side. Found ourselves on forest track below Crag Fell on return but found metal pipe to descend Ben Gill. Plantation being felled due to disease (also, trees removed below Crag Fell), and advise not to take diagonal track, but no alternative offered. We needed to take route through derelict mill to get back to CP

Christine Shepherd climbed on August 13th, 2010 [from/via/route] Walked from Scaly Moss using walk c340 Climbed again on 31.8.20 using the same walk. [with] On my own [weather] A bit overcast . - There is a great view of Ennerdale from this summit.

Wayne Baxter bagged on August 13th, 2020 [from/via/route] From Scaly Moss to Grike, look for Mask and follow to Crag Fell, down to black pot and onto Whoap and finally to Lank Rigg. Return down hill to Red Gill turn left and follow path down hill to road. [with] Sue [weather] Cloudy but hot

Nick Dobson hiked on June 21st, 2020 [from/via/route] Scaly Moss near Ennerdale over Grike then on to Crag Fell [with] Margaret and Ralph [weather] Windy wet and misty - Once again no views at all on the top, then set off for Lank Rigg. However conditions worsened and wind was too strong to get map out and a combination of wind and rain had reduced the printed walk route in plastic sleeve to a soggy mess. Our 8.5 mile walk ended up as an 11 mile walk as we ended up on Iron Crag instead. Returning back past Grike the sun came out and we had our first sighting o f Lank Rigg.
