Fellow go4awalkers who have already walked, climbed, summited & bagged Wild Boar Fell
David Congreave walked up on November 3rd, 2018 [from/via/route] Cotegill Bridge [with] Jonah [weather] Windy and wild.
Kevin Foster climbed on August 24th, 2017 [from/via/route] Minor road to Uldale [with] Henry [weather] Cloudy with rain on summit - An interesting line of approach from Uldale, first following along the wall beside Needlehouse Gill, then Grains Gill, before heading NE over pathless grassy moor to eventually reach Sand tarn. As the cloud had dropped and light showers had set in I decided to have an early lunch break. My mood dropped even further (like the clouds) when the light rain turned heavy for a time and I almost decided to call it a day at this point. However, minutes later the wind was blowing the clouds away and revealing glimpses of the views so I persevered and after a short climb to the summit plateau I made my way to the OS trig and wind shelter marking the fell top. I didn't hang around and made my way across the soggy plateau to the line of stone men and wind shelter marking the vertical edge of High White Scar. After lingering here for a few minutes the cloud lifted just enough to give me a few tantalising glimpses of the Mallerstang valley below. I took the good path heading South and my mood lifted even further as I dropped below the cloud and I could see my next objective ahead Swarth Fell.
