[with] Tess [weather] Cold & clear. - Lovely cold day with great views & plenty of frost. Some nice arty stonework in a sheepfold opposite the carpark at Tilberthwaite.

John Tippins climbed Wetherlam on October 24th, 2022 [from/via/route] From Low Tilberthwaite (part of c167) [with] Alone [weather] Patchy cloud around the summits, some bursts of sunshine, dry until mid-afternoon then a fair bit of rain.

Sarah Moore bagged Wetherlam 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 hiked 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. [with] With Mya my faithful 14 year old Patterdale Terrier. [weather] Very hot & sunny.

Kevin Foster scaled 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.
