Margaret Richards climbed on September 7th, 2016 [from/via/route] walk 22 yorks dale south and west book [with] Don [weather] clear day

Kevin Foster bagged on July 22nd, 2017 [from/via/route] Darnbrook Fell [with] By myself [weather] Rain to start, low cloud but then tops clearing and hot and sunny. - Very soggy underfoot between Darnbrook Fell and Fountains Fell following the summit wall. I couldn't find the ladder stile mentioned in the walk route description. I climbed over a gate in the wall instead and ascended directly to reach the Pennine Way path which was a relief after all the heather and bog trotting prior to that. I then followed the PW path to the prominent cairn (true summit) on Fountains Fell with fantastic views South and West. The South top looked a good distance away and was another out and back so as I was running out of time, I made an agonising decision to leave the South top for another day and returned along the PW path to the start of the miner's track. This area of the fell has plenty of interest with it's open mine workings, bell-pits and disused coke ovens as a reminder of the coal industry that thrived up here. After a last good look around at the views I followed the miners track back down to the road and my waiting car (a good mile further down the road where I'd left it).

Andy Jakob hiked during August, 1985 [with] Edith

Chris Faulkner summited on April 30th, 2017 [from/via/route] Dale Head [with] Michelle chandler [weather] Dry / blowy

Caroline Winter scaled on May 2nd, 2015 [from/via/route] Litton, Dawson Close, Darnbrook moor, Darnbrook Fell, Fountain Peak, Fountain Fell, Pennine Way to Dawson Close, Litton [with] Myself [weather] Overcast, rain/sleet late morning with Easterly wind; strong at times. Chucking it down with rain from 2 pm. - Thank goodness for the stone walls which sheltered me from the wind and rain. Only met one person; a Yorkshire man in the cross over of PW before Fountain Peak. We disagreed which was the official highest peak, and just to satisfy him I walked to Fountain Fell as well as the stone cairn. I collected a blue walking pole lost near the cairn. Got back to Litton in time to get to the Kettlewell garage as warning oil light declare itself driving through Arncliffe. Thank you to the garage for helping me out.

Trevor Williams walked up on November 6th, 2013 [with] paul [weather] wet in afternoon

Ray O'Hara bagged on August 23rd, 2012 [from/via/route] NY112 & NY135. I walked NY112 over Penyghent & Plover Hill as far as the cattle grid at SD87221 74498 then walked backwards round NY135 over Darnbrook Fell & Fountains Fell. The NY135 route was still easy to follow when walked in reverse [weather] Overcast, some sunny spells - Fairly boggy trudge across the ridge from Darnbrook Fell, but I have seen far worse. The summit itself is full of interesting features/cairns and the views are very good.
