Andrew Johnson hiked on November 14th, 2019 [from/via/route] Coniston [weather] Some cloud, very windy, snow and ice on tops - Scary descent of Swirl How ridge.

Linda Craven summited on October 31st, 2019 [from/via/route] Walna Scar road, map C123 [with] Kerry Louise, and Taffy [weather] Bright but cold and very windy. - Third and last of the day, easy walk from The Old Man, descent was a bit steep for me but not for the youngsters. Made the dog a jacket from my spare fleece as he was so cold!!

Richard Marchant conquered on August 9th, 1986 [from/via/route] We parked at Tilberthwaite ascended Wetherlam then Black Sail and on to Swirl How-Swirl Band-Brim Fell then on to The Old Man of Coniston. Once up the top I can remember us jogging down the main path straight in to Coniston then the long slog along the road back to the car at Tilberthwaite was a nightmare and seem to take ages [with] Nick Harker and Chris Aylen [weather] A fine dry day with no cool breeze and too much sunshine - I remember this being a long long walk on a very hot day and seem to take an eternity to complete and too much road walking at the end to get back to the car.

Elaine Evans scaled on February 11th, 2019 [from/via/route] From car park at Low Tilberthwaite, via Tilberthwaite Gill and Dry Cove Bottom, then ascent via Wetherlam Edge, continued to Swirl How via Prison Band then on to Great Carrs before descending along West Side Edge and back to car park. [with] Sue and Christine [weather] Very good weather for walking, dry and clear, good visibility. - Oh dear! Scramble up Wetherlam Edge was a bit tricky, made more difficult due to snow underfoot and unclear route to top.......but we did it! Prison Band looked more challenging than it was - a pleasant surprise after Wetherlam Edge!
