Other walkers who hiked, climbed, bagged and summited Wild Boar Fell Fellow go4awalkers who have already walked, climbed, summited & bagged Wild Boar Fell

Angela Moroney walked up on March 31st, 2021 [from/via/route] uldale house [with] Jane ludders [weather] sunny

Caroline Winter climbed on August 9th, 2020 [from/via/route] The Thrang, PW bridle way to The Nab, Wild Boar Fell, Swarth Fell, Stubbings Rigg, Aisgill cottages, Hell Gill, High Way [with] Becky [weather] Warm with light Easterly wind - Began walkng the path along beck at Mallerstang, but third field, we were faced out by 5 testy bullucks at the stile, determined not to move, so we back tracked to road again and walked the tarmac to meet the PW. Pleasant walk up The Nab, and amused by WB trig in shelter, which offered no shelter from the wind. Swarth Fell easy to locate and then long walk back. We were quite spooked by the beefy Texal sheep coming down from The high way.

David Congreave bagged on November 3rd, 2018 [from/via/route] Cotegill Bridge [with] Jonah [weather] Windy and wild.

Kevin Foster hiked 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.
