Christine Shepherd walked up 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 climbed 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 bagged 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 hiked 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

Claire Kirk summited on August 16th, 2021 [from/via/route] Seatoller National Trust Car Park [with] Phil [weather] Dull, drizzle - Walk cut short due to fire at home!

Wayne Baxter conquered on August 16th, 2021 [from/via/route] From Seathwaite followed the path through farm to Stockley bridge. Around Greenhow Knott & pick up a faint path to Seathwaite Fell. Onto Sprinkling Tarn & up Great End. From Great End across to Allen Crags & then onto Glaramara. We picked up a path by Hind Gill (not recommended very steep & rocky). Back to Seathwaite farm [with] Sue, Steven and Bev [weather] Cloudy & some rain

Paul Talbot-Greaves scaled on July 29th, 2021 [from/via/route] Seatoller [with] Paul Drury and Andy Bailey [weather] Rain most of day. High winds & low cloud with poor visibility on tops. Difficult terrain & challenging navigation. Soaked...even boots on inside.

Chris Sheard walked up on July 12th, 2021 [from/via/route] Along from Rosthwaite [with] George [weather] Trying to drizzle, slight winds a bit sweaty - Nice mountain top, with impressive views all around- rough stoney terrain. Finished with a nice scramble. Best point although not highest point- Lovely refuge & nice lunch

Paul Macey climbed on June 22nd, 2021 [from/via/route] Walk 139 [with] Luke [weather] Sunny

Kevin Foster bagged on June 1st, 2021 [from/via/route] Seathwaite. [with] By myself. [weather] Sunny & Hot. - There were too many tops visited on this walk to give a full description of each one. The route of the walk roughly followed the Sty Head Tarn path via Stockley Bridge, then as the path levelled off a steep ascent up the flanks of Seathwaite Fell to reach Wainwright's Top, then the true summit (Main Top) followed by a subsidiary top (South Top). The route then went past Sprinkling Tarn & climbed to Esk Hause (not the true one) before turning left & climbing to the summit of Allen Crags. Numerous tops were then visited along the undulating & interesting ridge including Glaramara & Rosthwaite Fell before descending off the ridge by dropping left at Tarn at Leaves into the ravine of Rottenstone Gill (not as bad as it sounds!). On reaching the lane to Thorneythwaite another left turn down a tarmac road & across field paths eventually led me back to the car parked at Seathwaite. Another tiring but superb day in The Lakes. I do feel as though I am saving the best until last with these Western & Southern Fells?
