John Bryers bagged Wetherlam 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.

Kevin Foster conquered Wetherlam 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.
