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

Clare Tait climbed on May 4th, 2021 [from/via/route] From Tilberthwaite along to Wetherlam Edge and 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 and 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 and foot holds. Tougher then anticipated, however it was managed. The views are fantastic from the top and the descent an absolute doddle.

Richard Wilkinson bagged on August 8th, 2020 [from/via/route] Old Man and Wetherlam [weather] Sunny day and rare escape during the Covid-19 pandemic. - Busy up the Old Man but then quiet around to Wetherlam.

Wayne Baxter hiked on April 28th, 2021 [from/via/route] From Coniston keeping right of the miners bridge, pass the red dell to Wetherlam. On the path pass swirl hawse and up prison band to Swirl How. Then onto Swirl band to Brim fell, onto Old Man and back to car in Coniston [with] Sue [weather] Cloudy and windy

Alan Smith summited on September 15th, 2020 [from/via/route] From Coniston. With kev. Hot sunny day [with] kevin [weather] Sunny

Stephen Batson conquered on July 11th, 2020 [from/via/route] Coniston [with] Clare [weather] Mixture of sunshine & fog

Andrew Johnson scaled on January 20th, 2020 [from/via/route] Tibletwaite [with] Ted [weather] Overcast Snow and ice on top

Richard Marchant walked up 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 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 and 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!

Phillip Bulley bagged on September 4th, 2018 [from/via/route] Via Tilberthwaite and Wetherlam edge. [with] Ruby. [weather] Sunny
