Over Whoapdavidsharpe2313/07/2019
Approached the summit from Whoap and descended via the same route turning left down the Whoap Beck valley and back to the car on cold fell road.Theianwood45803/07/2019
Parked at the lower car park for a 28 mile circular walk. First I climbed Grike (488m), across to Lank Rigg (541m), Whoap (511m), and Crag Fell (522m) before descending back to the lake via the Crag Fell Pinnacles and Angler's Crag. From there completed the full loop of Ennerdale as far as Black Sail Hut and finished with a climb up Bowness Knott (333m).meltdiceburg23/06/2019
After meeting the man we made our way easily around Whoap and headed down to start the incline of Lank Rigg. I had convinced myself this was so hard and steep that in the end it wasnt half as bad and quickly made it to the top. Awesome summit and trig and views of the whole walk. We even found some Money underneath the rock as per the section in the Wainwright book. After a short break we headed down through the valley only stopping to get a stone out of my shoe. Made good time and such a barran but very very stunning place. We were soon heading back round Blakeley raise before getting back onto the road and heading back to the van. Really loved this walk much more than I ever thought I would. From there we stopped for a drink in the Stanley Arms in Calderdale bridge before heading the looong journey home for a quick rest. A day sesh in Liverpool.Scotty 2 Hotty19/06/2019

Parked at roadside at Blakeley Moss via Grike, Crag Fell, Whoap and then to Lank Rigg. Descended by the track from the Whoap/Lank Rigg col, but due to snow melt had to go north upstream to cross the first main burn nearer the forest edge. Rejoined the ascent track to Grike by going up through new planting.LizH04/02/2019

From Cold Fell Road at 066130; over moor then above Calder headwaters/ Whoap Beck to a nice col. Good path worn going SW to summit. Back same way, with Pete. AW would have needed a bag of florins; this is now clearly a popular walk- probably with locals and rightly so. A grey, dry day, cloud base about 2200 ft.pwheeler27/09/2017

Last top of four reached today as Haycocks was added to the previous days walk, follow the 15 mile Far Western fells route from Stuart Marshalls book Walking the Wainwrights. Park and start from the Calder bridge to Ennerdale bridge road.WAYNE ROWLETT07/05/2017
I thought that it was a pointless duplication of route (see Grike), but the forestry track peters out and becomes far more difficult and slow going, stick to the old mine road. Climbed up from the mine road entrance, past some filthy just released cattle. Great weather and pretty dry underfoot given a fording of the Calder was required at the end!Karmakarl26/03/2017

Parked near bend in road at NY 06658 12971 then walked a circuit taking in Blakeley Raise, Grike, Crag Fell, Whoap and Lank Rigg. With Tony on a bright dry day.Skip24/10/2016
Nothing particular to recommend Lank Rigg, although I suppose I should say we had great views to Sellafileld and the Glalloway hills. Very boggy on the way down.AlanDStewart01/10/2016
