Stephen Eddy walked up Glaramara on October 28th, 2022 [from/via/route] Seatoller [with] Sinead O'Callaghan, Martin & Tracey Bayliss [weather] Dry, very windy at summit
John Tippins climbed Glaramara on October 27th, 2022 [from/via/route] From Seatoller - Second time I've done this - no recollection of previous date.
Christine Shepherd bagged Glaramara on July 2nd, 2006 [from/via/route] Walked from Borrowdale youth hostel using walk c301 [with] Did a recce for 15.7.06 when I led a group from St Georges Church Leeds [weather] Hot & sunny - Added Great End to the group walk & a refreshing dip in Styhead Tarn. Bagged this summit again on my own using walk c139 on 28.5.09. This was a more challenging walk as, after a hot & sunny start, the mist came down & made the route off the summit very difficult to find especially as my compass seemed to be spinning!
Richard Marchant hiked Glaramara on July 13th, 2022 [from/via/route] Started out from Seathwaite up to Stockley Bridge & right then up to Greenhow Knott, from here I went straight South up through Aaron Crags on to Seathwaite Fell to Great Stack & Sprinkling Tarn then Esk Hause. From here up to Allen Crags & then ridge along to Glaramara on to Combe Head, East to Combe Door along to Rosthwaite Cam & finally Rosthwaite Fell (Bessy Boot) down to Seatoller & back along the road to Seathwaite & the car [with] On my Own [weather] Clear hot sunny day with little or no breeze.
Keith Redhead summited Glaramara on January 24th, 2022 [from/via/route] This is a lovely walk from Seatoller Borrowdale. The walk up to thornythwaite crag & Glarsmara is lovely as the path winds it's way through craggs. The last ascent involves a challenging 20 foot scramble. However the mist had descended & find the ridge walk over to Allen Craggs was really challenging. We relied on our compasses as the path was not marked amongst the rock field. This slowed us down & we descended into Borrowdale via Ruddy Gill wearing head torches in the dark. I have never done that before. [with] Hil Natasha Charlie [weather] Dry but misty & challenging
Caroline Winter conquered Glaramara on August 29th, 2020 [from/via/route] Seathwaite, Stockly bridge, Sty Gill, Seathwaite Fell (3 cairns), Sprinkling Tarn, Allen Crags, Red Beck Top, Glaramara, Hind Gill, Seathwaite [with] Becky [weather] Warm day. 11 degrees on tops. Light wind. Very good views - Wise to ascend the gill to Seathwaite Fell, as difficult to spot access point from above. Lunch stop at shelter before Allen Crags & continuing to find the actual summit cairns amongst others placed on Red Beck Top & Glaramara. Confusion coming off Glaramara, as strayed off path & veering off to the east too early. Difficult descent of Hind Gill. Mountain rescue & Air rescue on Great End crags. Second attempt 20/9/2021 from Dovenest crag; bagged Wainwright top & highest top. Took 50 mins to travel the last mile out of borrowdale to keswick due to traffic
