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

Sarah Moore walked up on August 13th, 2022 [from/via/route] c306 [with] On my own [weather] Incredible views but incredible heat - very glad I set off early.

John Bryers climbed on June 23rd, 2022 [from/via/route] Parked at Low Tilberthwaite Carl Park North of Coniston. Set off around 10:20am along left hand side of Tilberthwaite Gill. At top of gill bearing right following path to Dry Cove Bottom & to Birk Fell & then the Hawse. Steep undefined path leads to top. Had to assist Mya my faithful Patterdale (15 on 24th June, tomorrow!) up some of the steeper parts leading to top of Wetherlam. Intention was to retrace steps but thought it a bit steep for dog so followed path to Lower Hows & picked up Hale Rake path returning to car. Had a quick dip in a pool at top of Tilberthwaite Gill to cool off, joined by May of course. Strava said 6.05miles, 2,204ft of elevation in 3hrs 4m of walking time taking 4hr 16m. [with] With Mya my faithful 14 year old Patterdale Terrier. [weather] Very hot & sunny.

Christine Shepherd bagged on March 31st, 2008 [from/via/route] Climbed using walk c222 on 31.3.08 [with] with my daughter [weather] Cold with deep snow - Climbed again on 1.10.11 using walk c420.

Pete George hiked on May 2nd, 2022 [from/via/route] Coniston [with] Roco [weather] Overcast but dry

Kevin Foster summited 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.

David Lord conquered on May 26th, 2017 [with] Debbie Lord [weather] Beautiful sunny day.

Richard Marshall scaled on August 26th, 2021 [from/via/route] Various [with] Me and Roxy [weather] Sunny & warm

Andrew Flynn walked up on August 10th, 2021 [from/via/route] Coniston. Walk number 19. The Coniston Fells [with] Nicola [weather] Sunny

Jeremy Torrance climbed on September 25th, 2020 [from/via/route] Jon, Stu, Tim. Poor Ash was poorly. [with] Duncan and Johann

Clare Tait bagged on May 4th, 2021 [from/via/route] From Tilberthwaite along to Wetherlam Edge & down via Hole Rake. [with] Charlie [weather] Warm, blue sky, great walking weather - No 61 Wainwright. An amazing day on the fells. I think this will be one of my favourite tops. A four plane sonic fly past incredibly close as we walked upwards. I found Wetherlam Edge pretty challenging & was glad of another walker higher up shouting out the route. Thought I was going to get stuck a couple of times until I worked out the hand & foot holds. Tougher then anticipated, however it was managed. The views are fantastic from the top & the descent an absolute doddle.
