Angela Moroney walked up Swarth Fell on March 31st, 2021 [from/via/route] uldale house [with] Jane ludders [weather] sunny

Caroline Winter climbed Swarth Fell on August 9th, 2020 [from/via/route] The Thrang, PW bridle way to The Nab, Wild Boar Fell, Swarth Fell, Stubbings Rigg, Aisgill cottages, Hell Gill, High Way [with] Becky [weather] Warm with light Easterly wind - Began walkng the path along beck at Mallerstang, but third field, we were faced out by 5 testy bullucks at the stile, determined not to move, so we back tracked to road again & walked the tarmac to meet the PW. Pleasant walk up The Nab, & amused by WB trig in shelter, which offered no shelter from the wind. Swarth Fell easy to locate & then long walk back. We were quite spooked by the beefy Texal sheep coming down from The high way.

David Congreave bagged Swarth Fell on November 3rd, 2018 [from/via/route] Cotegill Bridge [with] Jonah [weather] Windy & wild.

Kevin Foster hiked Swarth Fell on August 24th, 2017 [from/via/route] Wild Boar Fell [with] Henry [weather] Cloudy - After the heavy rain on Wild Boar Fell & clouds obscuring most of the view my mood had definitely lifted by the time I'd passed the tarn in the col & begun the short climb beside the wall to the summit of Swarth Fell. The highest point was on a rocky plinth East of the wall & the sun even came out briefly as I stood taking photos & admiring the view mainly South & East towards Garsdale head & the upper Eden valley.
