Richard Marchant climbed on May 8th, 2022 [from/via/route] Parked at Green Head & walked up a track SW to Charleton Wath & then changed direction across the fell ascending Brae Fell. From here carried on up on to Great Sca Fell then proceeded on an up & back trip to Knott. Once back at Great Sca Fell I dropped down & up on to Meal Fell & onwards to Great Cockup. I then proceeded back on the same path I came but took a path south around Meal Fell & circled around to Lowthwaite Fell & on to Longland Fell & back to the car. [with] On my Own [weather] Dry Day & a bit overcast in the morning although it did become sunny & clear in the afternoon.

Kate Peacock bagged on April 16th, 2022 [from/via/route] Dropped at Mosedale, collected at the bottom of Longlands Fell. We walked up the steep side of Carrock Fell. [with] Me & Sheila [weather] No rain. Winds were increasing at the beginning but dropped at the end. Fair day. Gloves & coat for the top. - The ascent up Carrock Fell was interesting. Thankfully nobody was there to want to be passed. Steep & narrow & fortunately dry otherwise I'm not sure my feet would have been as secure at points. Just beat to get up it, couldn't really hand around. Tops were as expected but quite boggy in parts. First time I've seen a bothy

Pete George hiked on January 16th, 2022 [from/via/route] Over Water [with] Roco [weather] Foggy at first slowly clearing

Erin Ryan summited on June 20th, 2021 - Longlands Fell- Lowthwaite Fell - Brae Fell - Little Sca Fell - Great Sca Fell -Meal Fell. Lots of grassy pastures with well defined paths. Returning via Trusmadoor pass lots of little streams with some muddy, boggy sections, but nothing you couldn't get past

Tim Winn conquered on September 9th, 2021 [from/via/route] Longsdale [with] Myself [weather] Overcast

Richard Beardsley scaled on May 5th, 2021 [from/via/route] Route C163 Great Sca Fell from Over Water [with] Myself. Because of Covid restrictions this is the first fell walks since August 2020. [weather] Lovely sunny day, snow & breezy at heights. - Dropped off at Over Water Car Park & commenced walk at 0930hrs. Stuck rigidly to the route apart from not doing Lowthwaite Fell. Arrived back at the car park at 1400 hrs. Walked a further 3 miles to the Castle Inn on the A591 for lift to home.

Claire Kirk walked up on April 10th, 2021 [from/via/route] Overwater [with] Phil [weather] Cold but clear, snow showers

Christine Shepherd climbed on September 13th, 2009 [from/via/route] From Overwater using walk c163 Repeated this walk on another glorious day 11.04.2021 [with] On my own [weather] Bright & clear - A lovely walk away from the usual routes.

Claire Murray bagged on November 19th, 2020 [from/via/route] Brae Fell, Great Sca Fell, Knott & High Pike from Fellside Farm [with] Vitor [weather] Warm & sunny but damp - Lovely walk with easy parking at the farm. No sheep on the hills & no leads required! There was no bridge the way the map told us to go but the river was wide, deep & fast flowing so we have to follow the river up by a mile or so until we found some bridges to get across.
