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

Martyn Howarth walked up Sallows on May 30th, 2022 [from/via/route] From Troutbeck (Church Bridge) up Garburn Road onto Sour Howes, then over to Sallows, down to Garburn Pass & back down Garburn Road. [with] Angela Howarth, Tilly Howarth, Archie Howarth and Barnaby the dog. [weather] Rather cloudy, but not too cold & no rain to speak of. Visibility OK from time to time.

Caroline Winter climbed Sallows on April 14th, 2024 [from/via/route] Jesus church, Sour Howes, Sallows [with] Solo [weather] Weather deteriorated to rain & wind, but views across to Stony Cove good

Paul Roddam bagged Sallows on March 17th, 2024 [with] Barber [weather] Cloudy coming into sun

Sarah Moore hiked Sallows on February 24th, 2024 [from/via/route] c332 / The Hagg Gill Round from Troutbeck. Loads of parking options & the route was well defined. Only thing to watch for is the path down when on the ridge. Most continuing on from Froswick but I needed to go left - it's clear if you look for it! Nice to go along the path once down at the Gill / stream - the road / track would be easier if there was a hurry. [with] On my own [weather] February frost, but dry although low visibility for most of the walk - particularly once past Sallows until coming down from Froswick. Glad of layers today! - 10 months since I've been in The Lakes - & it was so so good to be back. Not as cold as I expected & the sun made an appearance but visibility was rubbish. Coming down from Froswick was lethal & I went full length twice - but very glad for the poles & nothing that the washing machine can't fix! (Disappointing given how clear it was later in the day & the next day!)

Richard Fulcher summited Sallows on January 28th, 2024 [from/via/route] We parked in Troutbeck near the church & set off up a track through 'The Howe'. This track turned sharp left & then gradually climbed to meet 'Garburn Road'. We followed this up towards the Garburn Pass, turning right over a stile at Garburn Nook. We then followed a clear path up to Sallows ( 516m) & then back down & around the ridge (Moor Head) until rising again to the summit of Sour Howes (483m). The route down was steep in places following a SW direction past Backstone Barrow until meeting up with the Garburn Road again. Out of interest & for an easier lower section we veered off to pass through the Limefitt Holiday Park before reaching our car again. [with] Jen [weather] Cold winter's day, sheltered on the ascent but windy in places on the tops. - A good walk to start 2024 in the Lakes, but not a lot of interest compared to the central lakes area.

David Higginbottom conquered Sallows on February 9th, 2023 [from/via/route] Route 332 [with] Carolyn [weather] Good

Tim Winn scaled Sallows on September 3rd, 2023 [from/via/route] Troutbeck Church [with] Barry and Louise [weather] Foggy

Andrew Thornton walked up Sallows on August 7th, 2023 [from/via/route] Troutbeck [with] Jenny [weather] Overcast - Excellent path.

Rob Bennion climbed Sallows on November 12th, 2022 [from/via/route] from Troutbeck [with] Ron Southworth [weather] Warm & foggy

Clare Tait bagged Sallows on August 6th, 2022 [from/via/route] Parked at the end of Dubbs Lane & followed easy track to the hillside. [with] Charlie [weather] Calm, mild & mostly sunny. Perfect walking weather. - Our no 81 Wainwright. Completed with Sour Howes. Very pleasantly surprised by such a lovely walk on springy grass. Great if you want a couple of crag free Wainwrights.
