1/5 From Birks Bridge, Harter Fell (Revisit) and then down the NW ridge to pick up Birketts and Synges: Demming Crag, Horsehow Crags, Peathill Crag South Top and Peathill Crag. Then doubled back along fenceline for 400 yards to pick up footpath through the young forest, back down to join forest track to car park. 6 miles.nickywood109/08/2020
Walk up from Birks Bridge with Izzy. Went straight up the rather boggy steep path.Saw a Merlin, Sparrowhawk, Meadow Pipits, Chaffinches and a Robin. Summit was rocky and it was a bit of a scramble to get to the top. Bit of wind. Views were okay as summit was free of cloud. Returned down to the South West where we picked up the forestry path easily back to Birks Bridge.isabelle01/08/2020
Walked from Hardknott with Tony, Rufus and Betty. Just a one hill day due to Ruf having an attack of teenager! Green Crag wairs for another day!ESkelton01/08/2020

From the top of Hard Knott pass we headed to Harter fell. Fairly easy most of the way then straight up to the summit. And what a great summit it was. You have to climb up to the true summit but the official summit has a trig point. Met 2 men who didnít know what mountain they were on. Absolutely stunning seeing to isle of man and even Blackpool tower. Getting tired we made our way back to the car. I stripped and drove home in boxers. We said bye to Harter Fell Harold the lonely tree and got home. Had a healthy takeaway and watch Ronnie v Perry in the NI open semi-final. Great day and good to get the corner bagged off.Scotty 2 Hotty16/11/2019

A circuit of Green Crag and Harter Fell taking in as much scrambling as possible. Crossed the suprisingly easy moor from Green Crag and ascended via the delightful Harter Beanie route. Murky on the top but didn't really mind considering the fun of the ascent.Jake99430/03/2019
