Caroline Winter walked up Dow Crag on August 26th, 2019 [from/via/route] Wanna Scar road CP, Brown Pike, Buck Pike, Dow Crag, The Old Man of Coniston, Low Water, track via quarries back to CP. [with] Becky [weather] Warm with light SW wind. Visibility good at YH below, but poor towards Northern Fells. Improved by early afternoon and good views from The Old Man - Bank holiday walk. Last few places at car park, and hoping that sun dries mud at rear wheels of car when we get back, otherwise Becky will need to push us out. Pleasant walking up to Dow crag. Horrible biting midges on trig. Stopped for lunch overlooking Goats Water and then a steady climb to The Old Man, to find more midges. Passed walkers huffing and puffing up from the quarries. Our route up much more pleasant. Stopped at Low water to soak up the sun and bathe feet, and dared Becky to swim over to near by rocks-which she couldn't resist doing. Easy walk back to car, and mud had dried.

Richard Marchant climbed Dow Crag on July 7th, 1996 [from/via/route] This walk saw us all walk out of Torver and took us up to Goats Hawse where we traversed up to Dow Crag and descended on to Buck Pike then Brown Pike and finally back down to Torver. [with] Andrew (Shinner) Wright [weather] A fine dry day with a nice cool breeze and some sunshie - A walk done with Shinner while we were both based at Barrow on HMS Vigilant whilst in the build stage.

Elaine Evans bagged Dow Crag on June 7th, 2019 [from/via/route] From Coniston, walked up Walna Scar Road then ascended Coniston Old Man via Miners Bridge route, from summit followed path across to Brim Fell, descended to Goat's Hawse then up to summit of Dow Crag, retraced our steps to Goat's Hawse and descended to Goat's Water before following downward path to rejoin the Walna Scar Road back into Coniston. [with] Sue [weather] Beautiful day. Light refreshing shower on way back. - Beat the heavy rain today. Well worth taking the route via the disused mine track.

David Watson hiked Dow Crag on August 29th, 2018 [from/via/route] Coniston [weather] Sunny

Chris Sheard summited Dow Crag on August 13th, 2018 [from/via/route] Up from Duddon valley via Walna Scar Road [with] Solo [weather] Started with drizzle went misty and stayed misty - Weather moved slower than forecast as sun came out as i got into the car. Still after 4th attempt finally got Dow Crag. Brown pike was quite nice though i have never seen as many daddy longlegs

Phillip Bulley conquered Dow Crag on May 10th, 2018 [from/via/route] Via The Old Man of Coniston. [with] Ruby. [weather] Sunny and very windy.

Simon Boddy climbed Dow Crag on June 30th, 2017 [from/via/route] Torver [with] HF Holidays [weather] Breezy and cool with low cloud turning warmer and sunny later.

Claire Kirk bagged Dow Crag on April 8th, 2017 [from/via/route] Walna Scar car park [with] Phil [weather] Sunshine and clear day - Have also previously scrambled up the South Rake - was terrifying at the time as mist suddenly came down when we were partway up and we completely lost our bearings once at the top!
