Fellow go4awalkers who have already walked, climbed, summited & bagged Great Coum
Stella Nuttall walked up on October 17th, 2018 [from/via/route] From Lack House Farm. Ny 129 Gragateth, Great Coum Green Hill and Crag Hill. We didn't see anyone else on this walk until we saw firstly 3 people in orange boiler suits and then 2 men in yellow boiler suits approaching in the distance, quite surreal. They had all been pot holing and were making their way back to the farm. We had lunch by the waterfall in the sun. [with] Stella, Ann, Sally Christine and Kath. [weather] Misty to start with but when this lifted the views were awesome. - Very wet on the top between Gragareth and Great Coum.
Margaret Richards climbed on March 24th, 2017 [from/via/route] ny129 Gragareth and Great Coum from Leck Fell House [with] Don and Mike [weather] sunny and snow
Kevin Foster bagged on August 16th, 2017 [from/via/route] Green Hill [with] Henry [weather] Sunny morning becoming increasingly cloudy afternoon then light rain at the end - A bit of a confusing summit this one. Over the summit wall there are two fields split by another wall dissecting the summit wall and there are two cairns either side of the wall. I visited them both just to make sure but I think the one in the 'field' to the East is slightly higher. To make matters worse (or better I don't know) Crag Hill, from where I was standing looked as high if not higher, but according to the OS it is slightly lower and doesn't have the prominence to make it a separate Nuttall. Of note on the ascent was the three county stone incorporated into the wall marking the boundary between Yorkshire, Lancashire and Westmorland.
Mark Davidson hiked on March 2nd, 2004 [with] Alone [weather] Cold and crisp
Caroline Winter summited on October 3rd, 2015 [from/via/route] Yordas cave, Gragareth, Great Coum, Green Lane Track to High Moss, road by Long Gill back to car [with] Solo [weather] Ridge from Gragareth to Great Coum low cloud; 30 meters visibility meaning no views only stone wall! - Difficulty establishing proper summit. Pile of stones by wall but doesn't correlate with highest point on OS map. I paced to point where summit is supposed to be. Dropped too low on descent, ending at Beck, so clambered back up to obvious track!! Behind on time so ran along B road back to car. Meant I could revisit Country store to buy more scones- delicious 🍩 🍪 🍰
