Solo from P at Blackshope Cottage up steeply by Hang Gill burn onto Black Craig, Nether Coomb Craig, Swatte Fell (both putative summits) and Falcon Craig; returned by reversing this route. Weather was fine, at times warm with light W wind. Climb up and down by Hang Gill was rather steep, slippy and wet through decaying bracken. First visit to HF was also solo and by the same route on 24/03/2004.jacobus15/10/2018

Parked at Capplegill (at valley track junction with road). Through gates on East side of Hang Gill and up to Black Craig where a fox was spotted.

Second ascent on way from Falcon Craig to Under Saddle YokeNormanW29/06/2015
Epic 9 mountain walk, parked nearby Capelgill walked along the not very busy main road to Carrifran farm, bagged Carrifran Gans, White Coomb, Firthhope Rig, through the boggy Rotten Bottom, up to Under Saddle Yoke, and the lower Saddle Yoke, forded the burn up onto Hart Fell, Falcon Craig, Swatte Fell and Nether Coomb Craig picking a steep route back down to Capelgill, fantastic walk in fantastic weather.DanTrig12/06/2015
Fourth hill of Eight on a linear route from the Grey Mare's tail car park to Moffat and climbed up on the path alongside the waterfall and then crossed over the tail burn to climb Upper Tarnberry, followed by White Coomb and Firthhope Rig. Conditions starting were fair but gradually deteriorated to driving rain and wind and then it became a real challenge of navigating in the mist. I went wrong somewhere between Firthhope Rig and had to backtrack to the intersection of two fences to identify exact position. Route went past Hartfell Rig and then to Trig and shelter. Did not dwell due to windchill! Route continued to Falcon Craig.Dazingdale12/05/2015

Continuation of walk from Under Saddle Yoke. Headed down to basin at head of corrie then up Hartfell Rigg to the summit. Walk continued to Falcon Craig.Man of Kernow109/04/2015
Solo lovely day. Bus to Moffat. After coffee in the Rumbling Tum Walk to start followed track to top and followed the track to meet the Annandale Way and back down to Moffat. Felt unwell after leaving the summit. This held me up and I missed the last bus home. Stayed overnight at the Annandale Arms hotel. Very nice.munromurph05/04/2015
Staying at Howslack Farm so convenient point to start without having to drive. Five summits planned weather permitting. It wasn't and had had enough of driving rain and strong SSW wind wading through knee deep softish snow. Having lost my right hand photographing and logging Hart Fell trig decided did not fancy any more peaks today, especially as they would have been in to the wind. Discretion better part of valour and handrailed fence to Strong Cleuch and followed Lochan Burn to Newton Farm Cottage. Still a fair walk, nearly 10 miles in tough conditions in just on 5 hours.SteveSmith23/01/2015
