Our one and only hill of the day to complete a very enjoyable weekend in the company of Sarah, Richard, Denise and 6 of their Brolly Club friends. Weather conditions today had improved so that we were able to enjoy the views and the waterfalls. Spring must be on the way as many puddles were full of frogs spawn.Bernard12/03/2017

Nice walk on a beautiful bank holiday weekend. Cautely Spout, Great Dummacks, Calders, Bram Rigg Top, The Calf and Yarlside from the Cross Keys. Very steep ascent up and down Yarlside is unavoidable.Lazylizzie29/05/2016
Solo. From Ban End and then on to Kensgriff.Aimless Rambler05/05/2016
From Kensgriff. Steep descent to col and then an extremely steep grassy ascent to Yarlside. I could not find the contour path to the north, but will look harder if I ever revisit. The climb and long steep descent to Cross Keys is brutal.Nick Caunt14/04/2016

2mFM Radio Activation NP-019. Parked in Xkeys layby then down to bottom of spout and up RH track. Very windy and heavy rain.Petem0hqo19/07/2015
from Fell Head via The Calf & Calders. Dropped don to c.425m at Bowderdale head - which incidentally is a stunningly beautiful spot. just went at it. 250 odd metres to climb - at that stupidly steep angle.. but after much huffing and puffing the top was reached. What a brute of a mountain - I dont think there's a steeper mountain under 700m in the whole of England and Wales. Cairned top looks a lovely spot on a calm sunny day - but today was overcast and as windy as hell. Direct,very steep descent to Kensgriff saddlestig_nest10/05/2015
A visit to Yarlside and The Calf from the Cross Keys layby. Route and write-up at: http://gayleybird.blogspot.co.uk/2015/04/yarlside-and-calf.htmlGayle06/04/2015
A path left the summit south-westwards, which might have been the easier route to Yarlside except that it dropped 500 feet lower than the route I actually took. I dropped south-eastwards to the col between Randygill Top and Kensgriff, and then climbed to the summit of Kensgriff. There was a path off Kensgriff but nothing but a steep grassy wall to Yarlside’s summit ridge. I had not climbed anything this steep since High Seat two years ago and was virtually crawling on hands and knees at times. Eventually I was on the ridge and a few minutes later on the summit, thus completing not only the Howgills but all the summits in the northern Dales.peter4lc21/03/2015
Did with the Calf, windy on top with a bit of bite. Snow still on summit. Good views. Company: Soloiandesbottes14/03/2015
Alpine conditions for majority of route, with big snow drifts and wind slab over 500 metres. Route was Cross Keys- Yarlside-Kengriff- Randygill Top- Hooksey- Green Bell- Wandale- Cross Keys took 5 hours 30 minutes. Lots of Spindrift.isabelle03/03/2015
A hard walk in poor conditions after The Calf. We met in with loads of hunting dogs. And the hunt all on foot. Geoff 2E0NON & I did aSOTA activation on 145-fm.G4OOE28/02/2015
