John Tippins walked up Red Beck Top on October 27th, 2022 [from/via/route] From Seatoller [with] Alone [weather] Dry to start with & mild - t-shirt mild for the ascent. Started to rain mid-morning, then rained on & off all day. Very low cloud - in cloud for most of the walk. Wind quite calm. - Not an enjoyable walk, particularly the stretch from Rosthwaite to Glaramara. Confronted with many sheer rock faces that you have to find a way over. And I forgot the warning about the scree at Aaron Crags until I was part way down. It was bad. 'Not for the faint hearted' - you're not kidding.

Christine Shepherd climbed Red Beck Top on July 2nd, 2006 [from/via/route] Walked from Seatoller with walk c301 [with] Solo before leading a group from St George's Church on 15.7.06 [weather] sunny

Kevin Foster bagged Red Beck Top on June 1st, 2021 [from/via/route] Seathwaite. [with] By myself. [weather] Sunny & Hot. - There were too many tops visited on this walk to give a full description of each one. The route of the walk roughly followed the Sty Head Tarn path via Stockley Bridge, then as the path levelled off a steep ascent up the flanks of Seathwaite Fell to reach Wainwright's Top, then the true summit (Main Top) followed by a subsidiary top (South Top). The route then went past Sprinkling Tarn & climbed to Esk Hause (not the true one) before turning left & climbing to the summit of Allen Crags. Numerous tops were then visited along the undulating & interesting ridge including Glaramara & Rosthwaite Fell before descending off the ridge by dropping left at Tarn at Leaves into the ravine of Rottenstone Gill (not as bad as it sounds!). On reaching the lane to Thorneythwaite another left turn down a tarmac road & across field paths eventually led me back to the car parked at Seathwaite. Another tiring but superb day in The Lakes. I do feel as though I am saving the best until last with these Western & Southern Fells?

Caroline Winter hiked Red Beck Top on August 29th, 2020 [from/via/route] Seathwaite, Stockly bridge, Sty Gill, Seathwaite Fell (3 cairns), Sprinkling Tarn, Allen Crags, Red Beck Top, Glaramara, Hind Gill, Seathwaite [with] Becky [weather] Warm day. 11 degrees on tops. Light wind. Very good views - Wise to ascend the gill to Seathwaite Fell, as difficult to spot access point from above. Lunch stop at shelter before Allen Crags & continuing to find the actual summit cairns amongst others placed on Red Beck Top & Glaramara. Confusion coming off Glaramara, as strayed off path & veering off to the east too early. Difficult descent of Hind Gill. Mountain rescue & Air rescue on Great End crags

Simon Myerscough summited Red Beck Top on April 1st, 2007 [from/via/route] C139 [with] Martin & Bill [weather] Sunny, chilly-ish

Anthony Scott conquered Red Beck Top on October 11th, 2016 [from/via/route] walk c139 [with] me
