Andrew Jones walked up on May 7th, 2022 [with] Dom (son) [weather] Beautiful, sunny & hot & very clear.

Geoff Hand climbed on March 29th, 2022 [from/via/route] Walk Walk from Seathwaite. on The Walna Scar Road [with] Alone with Tess [weather] lovely morning early on, but turned cloudy & a bit damp early afternoon - Seathwaite is very secluded. took a lot of time getting there so did a shorter walk than I had planned. So did Brown Pike, Dow Crag & then Old Man. Came back by Seathwaite Tarn which was really nice. Very quiet after Old Man.

Kevin Foster bagged on September 16th, 2021 [from/via/route] Coniston. [with] By myself. [weather] Sunny with some high cloud cover. Perfect conditions really. - I decided to revisit Swirl How & Great Carrs after the low cloud on the previous week's visit blotted out all the views. A brief summary of the route was: Coppermines valley, Levers water, Swirl Hause, Swirl How, Great Carrs, Grey Friars, Levers Hause, Brim Fell, Old Man, Goats Hause, Dow crag, Buck Pike, Brown Pike, Walna Scar, White Maiden & return to the Walna Scar road for the long descent back into Coniston. The clear visibility really opened up the views as far as Morecambe Bay, the Isle of Man & possibly Blackpool Tower!? A superb day's walking from start to finish.

David Lord hiked on September 26th, 2015 [with] Debbie Lord [weather] Beautiful sunny day. - An excellent walk up a high peak. We walked up from the left side of the car park & although a steep ascent is was manageable & as you reach the lower top slope there are no big crags to deal with, just a pleasant walk to the top. The return walk took in Goats Tarn, which we'd highly recommend.
