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

Mr M A Blanchard walked up on November 16th, 2021 [weather] Cloudy

Kevin Foster climbed on September 6th, 2021 [from/via/route] Low Tilberthwaite. [with] By myself. [weather] Cloudy. Summits mostly covered. Good visibility on lower slopes. - An interesting route onto Wetherlam via Steel Edge. The one Wainwright doesn't mention in his books for some reason? Don't know why because it's a cracking way up. Sadly on Prison Band the cloud level was reached & the rest of the walk was view less. Of interest on route was the war memorial & Halifax bomber crash site between Swirl How & Great Carrs. The views opened up again on the descent of wet side edge & the clouds & sunshine poking through made for some great photos. I climbed Swirl How a few days later (17th) via the Coppermines valley & Levers water in glorious sunshine & this time got the amazing views I missed the week previous.
