Richard Marchant walked up on July 13th, 2022 [from/via/route] Started out from Seathwaite up to Stockley Bridge & right then up to Greenhow Knott, from here I went straight South up through Aaron Crags on to Seathwaite Fell to Great Stack & Sprinkling Tarn then Esk Hause. From here up to Allen Crags & then ridge along to Glaramara on to Combe Head, East to Combe Door along to Rosthwaite Cam & finally Rosthwaite Fell (Bessy Boot) down to Seatoller & back along the road to Seathwaite & the car [with] On my Own [weather] Clear hot sunny day with little or no breeze.

Christine Shepherd climbed on June 25th, 2010 [from/via/route] Walked from Seathwaite Climbed again 17.12.2021. I found this harder work second time. [with] On my own [weather] sunny - This was a quick walk after arriving at Borrowdale Youth Hostel for a weekend with members of St George's Church Leeds.

Claire Kirk bagged on August 30th, 2021 [from/via/route] Wasdale National Trust Camp Site [with] Alone [weather] Cloudy but dry

Wayne Baxter hiked on August 16th, 2021 [from/via/route] From Seathwaite followed the path through farm to Stockley bridge. Around Greenhow Knott & pick up a faint path to Seathwaite Fell. Onto Sprinkling Tarn & up Great End. From Great End across to Allen Crags & then onto Glaramara. We picked up a path by Hind Gill (not recommended very steep & rocky). Back to Seathwaite farm [with] Sue, Steven and Bev [weather] Cloudy & some rain

Chris Sheard summited on July 12th, 2021 [from/via/route] Along from Sprinkling tarn [with] George [weather] Slight winds fresher feel, top clear - Nice top, with impressive views Lovely views up to Keswick & across to Skiddaw - Allerdale Ramble finish badly signposted - A big bull cow & calf - we were brave (actually Bovines were Friendly)

Paul Macey conquered on June 22nd, 2021 [from/via/route] Walk 139 [with] Luke [weather] Sunny

Christina Lander scaled on June 6th, 2021 [from/via/route] Seathwaite - Base Brown - Seathwaite Fell - Allen Crags - Seathwaite [with] Dick [weather] Cloudy at times but mostly sunny - During our holiday staying at Station House, Troutbeck, Penrith

Kevin Foster walked up 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?

Darren Wilson climbed on May 2nd, 2021 [from/via/route] Rosthwaite, Glaramara, Allen Crags & Seathwaite [with] Mike

Caroline Winter bagged 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
