After a snack at Muncaster Castle car park. A gentle ascent with Miranda via the Wainwright summit. We agreed that this looks lower from the trig and that the trig looks higher from here. On to Silver Knott.Wycombe Wanderer01/12/2019
Reclaiming the Marilyn bag only 17 yrs and 20 days after I first climbed it. Met some guys from SOTA at the Trig, which they knew wasn't the summit. That's them grassed up.Minto22/11/2019

As Douglaschrisbien23/06/2018
Thanks to all who came along for my final English Marilyn. The walk started well with pasties, scones or cakes in the Ravenglass station cafe, before a trip on the R&E railway to The Green, cake and damson gin at the top, then ice cream at Muncaster Castle to make sure we had enough energy to get back to Ravenglass. Some Tumps also got in the way during the walkGill23/06/2018
From Eskdale Green to Ravenglass via Silver Knott, Muncaster Fell, Hooker Crag and Muncaster Castle Hill - with Gill's E Ma completion party.summitsup23/06/2018
Parked at Muncaster Castle car park, up bridleway heading past a lake then over the old Marilyn summit, touching trig point and rock on the way, short descent then across some bog on a path and then cut up to this summit. Over time I am sure that a more significant path will appear going over this top - there is a faint one already forming.assynt_bob12/04/2018

After doing Black Combe earlier in the day and lunch in Ravenglass - parked at layby near Muncaster Castle car park and ascended via Fell Lane. Very blustery on top.benalder28407/10/2017

To ensure I have been up the revised summit. With Jackieclimbingkershaw04/09/2017
Second completion of the English Marilyns! At least Hillbagging now agrees with my totals. I don't remember it being that boggy back in 1989.tim74730/08/2017
Continuation from trig..I still think the trig is higher, but it was worth the out n back to see the profile of the top, its almost a mini sawtooth! Lots of billberries scoffed.stig_nest12/08/2017
Revisit for the relocated Marilyn summit. On own.(Left Mekon taking photo's on Hooker crag)MorecambeMonkey09/08/2017

Third time up and I'd never noticed the slightly higher summit before. So we hauled ourselves the extra 20 metres and bagged a very cheap Marilyn.nukeboy125/06/2017
From Muncaster Castle Car Park - Fell Lane - Muncaster tarn (very warm and muggy - rain on the way) - Hill Summit then trig bagged (a steam train whistles below) We linger on the hill top to soak up the views (Mountains river estuaries and the sea) then back to the Castle and refreshments.briandavies27/05/2017
Visit to re-claim MarilynAlan Caine01/05/2017
Via Fell Lane to the newly located summit. Despite being higher the new location lacks the prominence of Hooker Crag where the trig point is, which was previously thought to be the highest point. Operated SOTA from the new top and made six contacts approaching sunset.G4OBK (Phil)27/04/2017
