With Ullscarf. Up through Wythburn Fells from Thirlmere. Good views from the summit's, but showers turned to continuous downpour on the descent. United Utilities ungelpfully closed the path down beyond Harrop Tarn, with no prior notice. We ignored this!huwthomas30/07/2018

Interesting route from Stonethwaite up the steep fell side onto Eagle Crag, Sergeants Crag then a climb across the fell to Long Crag and Green Up Edge to the the top of Ullscarf. Another interesting route back down using High and Low Saddle and the steep descent beneath High Crag to get back to StonethwaitePhilip A19/12/2016

From Thirlmere - Harrop Tarn - Ullscarf - High Raise. Descent via Wyth Burn was a mistake - very wet and marshy; suspect returning over Calf Crag and Steel fell would have been better. Quiet route by Lake District standards!benalder28411/11/2016
A round from Steel End car park, taking in Middle How, Ullscarf ( second time ) High Saddle, Low Saddle and Standing Crag. A gloriously sunny day but after heavy rain, still wet underfoot. Harrop Tarn appears to have almost disappeared under weed.Lou02/10/2016

Solo. Low level cloud. Visibility poor. Started at Dobgill Car Park. Biggest issue I found was that the route taken crossed all 4 maps OL4,5,6 & 7! Kept with OL4 mostly. When got home found out that 'Central Lake District Walkers Map 2' would have been much easier to use.Statto30/08/2016

With Parlick and Liz Halpin from Watendlathwaite. a cool and great day out.to Ulscarfe and back taking every ring contour in sight!Shutterlag22/04/2016
It was only lunchtime, so I estimated that I still had time to cover the 4 miles out and back to Ullscarf and return to the car before teatime. The path often disappeared near Greenup Edge and I was left to pick my way round damp ground before the final gentle climb to Ullscarf. The alternative ascent would have been from Watendlath, and I met two walkers on the summit who had done that. It seems that the route from there is even wetter. I retraced my steps to High Raise, then took the path that runs in an arc via Sergeant Man to descend to the lovely Stickle Tarn, with the sun now high to the west beyond the Langdale Pikes.peter4lc30/09/2015
