Richard Marchant walked up on September 7th, 2021 [from/via/route] Route taken as per map C318, I Started from Armboth car park and then walked through Fishercrag Plantation up on to Armboth Fell then traversed across to High Tove followed by High Seat where I had a spot of lunch then proceeded on to Bleaberry after which I back tracked and made my back down south of Iron Crag and picked up a forest track which led me to a path coming off to ascend Raven Crag. Last one for the day so it was back down the path to the road on the West side of Thirlmere and that was followed back to the car park. [with] Just myself [weather] Dry and fine weather. - Another simply awesome morning out in the Lakes

Paul Macey climbed on August 14th, 2021 [from/via/route] C318 [weather] Sunny intervals

Clare Tait bagged on July 27th, 2021 [from/via/route] From Armboth car park taking in High Tove, High Seat, Bleaberry Fell and Raven Crag [with] Charlie [weather] Warm, overcast. Some gaps in the cloud. - No 65- 69 Wainwrights and will log all together. As the weather had remained warm there was no issue with bog! Just soft walking. A new path of huge stone blocks solved the issue around High Seat where the bog had obviously been boggiest. A good walk and five Wainwrights bagged.

Mark Hazelton hiked on July 4th, 2021 [from/via/route] Walked up from Watendlath CP and bagged High Tove and High Seat. [with] Family and Pepper [weather] Sunny and humid then got absolutely drenched - Car park is a great find also took in Ashness Bridge and Surprise View

Richard Beardsley summited on July 1st, 2021 [from/via/route] Dropped off and started route at 0800 hrs from Ashness Bridge [with] Myself. [weather] Slightly overcast but sun broke through eventually. Warm pleasant day. - Route from Ashness Bridge was straight forward. Started from the right side of the Bark House mountain hut, (public footpath signpost just visible). Followed the path quite easily and where it meets the gill turned right onto an old but well made stone pitched path that climbs steeply up the fellside to the Dodd. The summit trig point of High Seat eventually comes into view. Having summited High Seat the recently made stone path to High Tove is easily located and leads directly to its top. Armboth Fell was next and again that was easily sighted from High Tove. A direct route was taken over comfortable ground which could be quite boggy in wet weather. After Armboth I returned to High Tove passed through the gate and descended along the track to Watendlath. It was then a 5 mile walk along the road to Keswick and catch the bus to Carlisle. I arrived home at 1500hrs. A thoroughly enjoyable day.

Nick Dobson conquered on May 31st, 2021 [from/via/route] National trust car park in Watendlath [with] Margaret & Ralph [weather] Very hot day today so with Ralph 11 years now the plan was to do a quick up to High Tove summit and back to Watendlath Tarn - Our third Wainwright walk this year completing number 175 & 176 of the 214, by continuing onto Armboth Fell taking advantage of the last few days of excellent weather to reduce slightly the swampiness of the route (38 more to go) Coffee and cake at the N T cafe then round to the Tarn briefly before Ralph got impatient of the peace & tranquility.

Claire Kirk scaled on May 7th, 2021 [from/via/route] Armboth Car Park [with] Self [weather] Cold, wintry showers

Christine Shepherd walked up on October 4th, 2009 [from/via/route] Used walk c318 from Armboth [with] On my own [weather] Clear but wet underfoot - I had some wonderful long distance views on this walk to distract me from the decidedly boggy conditions underfoot. Climbed again on 23.9.19 and 25.9.19 while bagging Bell Crags. Repeated walk c318 21-04-2021.

Richard Fulcher climbed on April 19th, 2021 [from/via/route] Circular walk from car parked on A591. Armboth up to High Tove (I walked across to Armboth Fell & back to High Tove), over the boggy terrain to High Seat. Complicated and difficult walk across woods and up to Raven Crag via a huge ravine, a high ladder stile and along a track. Back down to Thirlmere & back to the car. [with] Jen (except Armboth Fell) [weather] Beautiful sunny day with very little wind ... a slight chill at times. - The whole walk was 7.8 miles for Jen and 9.2 for me.

Claire Murray bagged on November 25th, 2020 [from/via/route] Thirlmere: Raven Crag, High Seat, Bleaberry Fell, High Tove and Armboth Fell [with] Vitor [weather] Bright but boggy. Knee deep in bog with no clear path. - So boggy! No path
