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

Kevin Foster walked up 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 climbed on May 26th, 2017 [with] Debbie Lord [weather] Beautiful sunny day.

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

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

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

Clare Tait conquered 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.

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

Wayne Baxter walked up 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 & up prison band to Swirl How. Then onto Swirl band to Brim fell, onto Old Man & back to car in Coniston [with] Sue [weather] Cloudy & windy

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

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