Other walkers who hiked, climbed, bagged and summited Mickle Fell Fellow go4awalkers who have already walked, climbed, summited & bagged Mickle Fell

Mark Hanley walked up on July 7th, 2018 [from/via/route] Cow Green - With permit from MOD.

Kevin Foster climbed on August 5th, 2017 [from/via/route] Linear route (two cars) from lay-by on B6276 near Grains of the Beck, Lunedale valley to Murton village (car park at north end of village), Eden valley Cumbria [with] Me and Bruce [weather] Sunny, with heavy showers until late afternoon then just sunny. - Mickle Fell lived up to all expectations and we were lucky to have a day with clear summits and an extensive 360 degree panorama. The route of ascent followed a quarry road to Fish Lake and then a shooters track via Close House crags and High Crag. Here we sheltered for a while in a grouse butt from a passing shower and had our lunch before making the final climb to the trig point at the eastern end of Mickle Fell's summit ridge. The next mile of easy walking on grass was a delight with excellent views all round. A huge pile of stones marked the fell's highest point at the western end of the ridge and was a great spot to take photos. I just wished I had brought a Yorkshire flag with me to reclaim the top for my home county. I had a lot of good banter with my friend Bruce (who is County Durham born and bred) about which county had the rightful claim to it...I think the result was a draw.

Darren Mortimer bagged on July 9th, 2017 [from/via/route] Hilton [with] Dermot Palmer [weather] Overcast with the odd sun and windy on the tops. - Shit walking

Mark Davidson hiked on November 16th, 2008 [with] Mike [weather] Lovely and sunny for November - First 'wild camp' in the van

Christine Shepherd summited on August 6th, 2016 [from/via/route] Walked from Hilton using walk c407 [with] On my own [weather] Fine and breezy. - A great mountain with a unmissable summit cairn unlike Little Fell.

Chris Faulkner conquered on August 15th, 2015 [from/via/route] From Hilton, Micle Fell via Burton fell. [with] Michelle Chandler [weather] Bright, sunny with showers - Very long day. 17 miles. Boggy. Mountains littered with shells and shell holes.
