From Powter How with DW on a whhite cloud day with a biting 20mph Westerly. A round of Barf (didn't like Slape Crag). Lord's Seat, Broom Fell (The Half shelter thankfully took 90% of the wind) and Ullister Hill. Descending eventually to the car after some minor forest disorientation til I could see LS and Barf in the same view. Never been to Whinlatter, but got a bit close today LOL!nukeboy126/03/2019

With ChristineKeith9920/01/2019
Walked from the Spout Force car park and back with Joanna and Trish. Nice walk. It's a shame that there were no views at the summit though. It was like pea soup. Managed to get back before it got dark and started raining. NOTE - Forgot my Garmin. Doh.DAB8106/01/2019
From Broom fell Lords seat was just a short walk away. Luckily the ground was frozen or I suspect this would have been a very boggy unpleasant section. As it was it was very easy and nice to take the views in. Looking north towards Binsey and sale fell towards the Solway Firth in Scotland. Skiddaw dominating the view east with our next target in site Barf. Nice rocky summit with a metal pole on the summit surrounded by mini Christmas trees.Scotty 2 Hotty02/01/2019

Nice weather for a couple of days so went to do the tops at the North side of Whinlatter. Donald from next door and super pooch Marley joined me. Up through the forest, took in Ullister Hill Birkett, then the Wainwrights Barf, Lords Seat and Broom Fell, popped up the rather uninteresting Tarbarell Moss Birkett on the way down. Road from Braithwaite closed so had to get in via Lorton. 3 more Ws done.Mark T19/10/2018
