Kevin Foster walked up 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 climbed 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.

Pete George bagged on July 17th, 2021 [with] Roco [weather] Sunny & Hot
