Richard Marchant walked up Swirl How 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 climbed Swirl How 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!

David Watson bagged Swirl How on August 29th, 2018 [from/via/route] Coniston [weather] Sunny

Vic Royle scaled Swirl How on May 26th, 2018 [from/via/route] With Great Carrs from Irish Cottageville [with] Team Wiggle [weather] T-shirt time until the top - lost each other at the top - Sick Mink pre peak jitters, bank holiday wiggle, bun raid on Greggs was a game of 2 halves. Ulverston ice hunt, Bull's outdoor beef, Walter Pablo revisited and snoozy home run for Momma Wiggle - 'try praying'

John Bryers walked up Swirl How on May 13th, 2018 [from/via/route] Walna Scar Road [with] Janet Bryers, David, Janine and Freya Gray. With Mya and Jazz [weather] Sunny and warm with a cool breeze on ridges

Caroline Winter climbed Swirl How on April 11th, 2018 [from/via/route] Wrynose pass, Great Carrs, Grey Friar, Swirl How, Black sails, Wetherlam [with] Becky [weather] Cloud lifted and great views late morning/afternoon, breezy on ascent to Hell Gill Pike - Busy up here. Some off to Coniston from Swirl Hawse, we some how missed plane debris on Great Carrs! Lost time on descent of Prison Band and detour off path to Black Sails. Also, after rocky scramble decent.....ended up on the minor track to the mines, and boy was it steep and never ending. We were in dismay at another climb to get back over to Wet Side. Late for booked meal, but fantastic circuit

Jill Dean bagged Swirl How on September 21st, 2017 [from/via/route] Conniston [with] Grez and dexter
