Andrew Johnson walked up 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 climbed on October 31st, 2019 [from/via/route] Walna Scar road, map C123 [with] Kerry Louise, and Taffy [weather] Bright but cold and very windy. - First of the day, a good climb up, bright but cold. Quite a few climbers, very cold and windy on the top.

Caroline Winter bagged on August 26th, 2019 [from/via/route] Wanna Scar road CP, Brown Pike, Buck Pike, Dow Crag, The Old Man of Coniston, Low Water, track via quarries back to CP. [with] Becky [weather] Warm with light SW wind. Visibility good at YH below, but poor towards Northern Fells. Improved by early afternoon and good views from The Old Man - Bank holiday walk. Last few places at car park, and hoping that sun dries mud at rear wheels of car when we get back, otherwise Becky will need to push us out. Pleasant walking up to Dow crag. Horrible biting midges on trig. Stopped for lunch overlooking Goats Water and then a steady climb to The Old Man, to find more midges. Passed walkers huffing and puffing up from the quarries. Our route up much more pleasant. Stopped at Low water to soak up the sun and bathe feet, and dared Becky to swim over to near by rocks-which she couldn't resist doing. Easy walk back to car, and mud had dried.

Richard Marchant hiked on June 1st, 2008 [from/via/route] This walk saw us all walk out of Coniston over the Miners Bridge up to the old Quarries to Crowberry Haws and on the main path to the top of The Old Man of Coniston then down to Goats Hawse to Goat's Water and followed a path which brought us around the Old Man to the south and back in to Coniston. [with] Nick Harker, Wendy Harker, Jessica Harker, Alison, James and Thomas [weather] Wet dull dreary day.

Elaine Evans scaled on June 7th, 2019 [from/via/route] From Coniston, walked up Walna Scar Road then ascended Coniston Old Man via Miners Bridge route, from summit followed path across to Brim Fell, descended to Goat's Hawse then up to summit of Dow Crag, retraced our steps to Goat's Hawse and descended to Goat's Water before following downward path to rejoin the Walna Scar Road back into Coniston. [with] Sue [weather] Beautiful day. Light refreshing shower on way back. - Beat the heavy rain today. Well worth taking the route via the disused mine track.
