Elaine Evans walked up Whin Rigg on May 17th, 2019 [from/via/route] From car park beside Forest Bridge at Nether Wasdale up to Whin Rigg then continued to Illgill Head before retracing our steps to Whin Rigg. Descended on a clear path which tracked diagonally across the fell to join main path through farm and back to car. [with] Sue [weather] Glorious day - sunshine, light breeze. - Amazing views - able to see some tops still to do. Future walks planned.

John Almond climbed Whin Rigg on July 14th, 2018 [from/via/route] Solo walk from Wasdale Head NT car park - Illgill Head - WHIN RIGG - Illgill Head - Wainwright 144 [weather] Warm, but rather cloudy until mid afternoon

Chris Sheard bagged Whin Rigg on April 9th, 2018 [from/via/route] Up from Strands Inn through steep gill to ridge passing through to Ill gill. fabulous day [with] George [weather] Started and finished with broken cloud and sun - Very steep up and nice circuit

Tracey Cowell hiked Whin Rigg on March 27th, 2018 [from/via/route] Irton Pike [with] Andy and Billy [weather] cold and cloudy, rain showers

Craig Steeland summited Whin Rigg on August 30th, 2017 [from/via/route] From car park near Santon Bridge below Irton Pike [with] Sue [weather] Partly cloudy and cool with light winds - Muddy and heavy going underfoot. Not a walk that will be repeated. Took and out and back route rather than walking along the road or along Wasdale Screes.

Simon Boddy conquered Whin Rigg on June 25th, 2017 [from/via/route] Eskdale [with] HF Holidays [weather] Sunny and breezy

John Walter scaled Whin Rigg on May 6th, 2017 [from/via/route] . [with] Tricia

Richard Fulcher walked up Whin Rigg on May 2nd, 2017 [from/via/route] Wasdale Head [with] Jen [weather] Sunny, clear blue sky, windy - The path up from Wasdale Head was well marked & firm under foot. The tops were very pleasant but the walk down Greathall Gill was tricky and it wasn't easy to find the path near the bottom. However, by far the worst part of the walk (sometimes dangerous) was along the shore of the lake with many scree slopes to navigate across - loose boulders and rocks. We were late back after 10.5 hours.

Anthony Scott climbed Whin Rigg on May 2nd, 2017 [from/via/route] YHA Wasdale Hall [with] me [weather] White cloud, lots of sun. Lovely!

John Tippins bagged Whin Rigg on February 14th, 2017 [from/via/route] Scaly Moss [weather] Bright, beautiful, sunny day but with very strong winds gusting at 50mph. Made ascents difficult. - Didn't fancy the return walk along the screes, as suggested on this website. I don't like walking on screes and especially so close to the deepest lake in Cumbria - too eerie. Met a guy on the ridge who confirmed my view. "It's horrible, absolutely horrible", he said. Returned via the ridge. And the wind was still really fierce - kept well away from the edge.
