With Jonny, Nathan and Chris. Dropping a car in Tiberthwaite, we walked up Yewdale Beck and into Dry Cove Bottom. Up onto Weathelam Edge, the veiws kicked in, and the wind picked up. Nice almost scramble upto Weatherlam. Then along the Black Sails, and another fun step up to Swirl How. We then walked along the ridge to Brim Fell and the Old Man. Turning back on ourselves, we went along the Dow Crag ridge (new fav) along Buck, Brown Pike, then down and along to Walna scar and White Maiden, before dropping back into Torver for food and well needed sleep. 8hr20mins (5hr19min): 20.3km; 1437mByronHaywood14/09/2019

From Grey Friar again we cut across Great Carrs knowing we’d be doing it last on this walk taking the direct route route to Swirl How. Fantastic summit on the edge of a cliff looking down the valley to Windermere. We actually didn’t stay at all on this summit as there was people on it but because we were going to retrace our steps back up Prison Band coming back to the summit and finally getting Great Carrs in. But when we got back and hour or so later it really was a great rocky summit with a great cairn at the head of the valley.Scotty 2 Hotty21/06/2018

Parked up at car park at Walna Scar Road then set off west along Walna Scar to Brown Pike, and then headed along ridge line to Buck Pike then Dow Crag before heading up to summit of the Old Man. Quite a few people up on the summit making the most of the good weather. After a sandwich and cup of tea carried on northwards to Swirl How. Was going to end it there and head back down but decided instead to take advantage of the good weather and carried on to Wetherlam. Nice gentle stroll down past the coppermines before heading back to the car. Total time was about 6 1/2 hours. Very nice day out.GaryG02/05/2014

Beautiful weather hike with Ian and Louise. Route from Wrynose Bottom to Skelwith Bridge, using two cars, over 11.5 miles and 6 summits:- Little Carrs - Hell Gill Pike - Grey Friar - Great Carrs - Swirl How - Black Fell. Wonderful clear view of Scafell range from Grey Friar, and early evening from Black Fell looking back up Langdales. Interesting but sad story of the plane crash on Great Carrs. Path down from Swirl Hause into Greenburn very indistinct (lost it several times!). Had late lunch in Three Shires Inn, Little Langdale, before the Black Fell section.mavero1028/09/2013

Climbed with Simon in terrible weather. Date is an estimate. Left too late really, particularly for November and didn't get to the summit until 4pm. Very misty and quite a few people on the top that were struggling to get their bearings. We lost our way down and ended up going the wrong way in the mist. Finally got onto a road, by this point in the dark and had to walk along that for about three miles to get back to the car. Since this walk have been taking torches and survival bags and compass on walks.alexmounsey11/11/2011

Joan, Peter, Ian, Christopher Baldwin, Willie & dogs. Tuesday May 26th. A lovely day and the boys settle on the Coniston horseshoe which gives me time to relax & dose while they investigate the levels. Park at old station and walk up towards Coppermines then cut up to track up to Low Water beautifully blue and cool. Direst walk up nose avoiding the busy main track gave us a lovely private lunch spot at a new 'to us' cavern. Wandered over Brim Fell, Swirl How, etc and find the extra 30 mins onto Wetherlam for the delightful ridge descent to Coniston.PeteF26/05/1987

Roger 12, Robert, Peter, Ian and Mummy. May 28th Stratus clouds sit on the hills but the cloud is broken so we have a day on Consiton Old Man exploring the mines and enjoying the improving weather - a cold wind but visibility gradually improving - return via Brim Fell & Swirl How. Still enough energy to climb the fell after tea.PeteF28/05/1984

Second ever Wainwright on family walking tour of Lakeland. From Coniston YH to Duddon YH. We walked past the coppermines, then up the then essentially pathless valley and ascended Prison Band. A fine, if hazy day. My mother was exhausted by all this and her reward was a night's rest on a straw mattress (only the boys' dorm had foam mattresses). The YH is no longer, but still the active Black Hall farm. The first of ~10 visits to this fine mountain, the pivotal point of the Coniston Fells.pwheeler24/08/1970
