Geoff Hand walked up on April 20th, 2022 [from/via/route] Walk c179 The Seathwaite Round Pt2 Brim Fell, Swirl How, Great Carrs & Grey Friar [with] Alone with Tess [weather] Another glorious sunny & warm day (ridiculous for this time of year!) - Second part of 2 goes at this walk. upto Seathwaite tarn, on to Goat's Hawse then on to Brim Fell, Swirl How, Great Carrs & Grey Friar. Great day out.

Kevin Foster climbed on September 6th, 2021 [from/via/route] Low Tilberthwaite. [with] By myself. [weather] Cloudy. Summits mostly covered. Good visibility on lower slopes. - An interesting route onto Wetherlam via Steel Edge. The one Wainwright doesn't mention in his books for some reason? Don't know why because it's a cracking way up. Sadly on Prison Band the cloud level was reached & the rest of the walk was view less. Of interest on route was the war memorial & Halifax bomber crash site between Swirl How & Great Carrs. The views opened up again on the descent of wet side edge & the clouds & sunshine poking through made for some great photos. I climbed Great Carrs a few days later (17th) in glorious sunshine. Good visibility & amazing views in contrast to the previous week's visit.
