Richard Marchant climbed 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 bagged 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!

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.
