Bagged trig and rock summit here before whilst heading for the new location of the Marilyn summit. Not convinced that ‘new’ Marilyn summit is higher but easy to bag both anyway.assynt_bob12/04/2018

On route to re-bagging Muncaster Fell with Tim747CreakingHiker30/08/2017
Usual route up Fell Lane. That trig pillar is in sight from a long way off! Arriving at the summit to a bloomin smashing view. I know what the satellites have said but I contend that the trig top is the higher.stig_nest12/08/2017
WOs 47. After a cloudy day on the circuit of Great Worm Crag the sun came out to give a lovely evening, too good to say on Ravenglass campsite so went up Muncaster Fell and back. Superb views in all directions but surprisingly boggy underfoot.BURGESS27/07/2017
From Castle CP via Fell Lane - both topsCrib Goch01/07/2017
This was our 2nd time in 2 months. But today younger one at 2 and 3/4's came too without too much complaint. 4 year old ate it up. So busy on a Sunday, but met folk I've not seen in many years. Weather 14/15 degrees and a chill N-Westerly, but fine for sandwiches sunshine and coffee in the lee. This was the first time we'd recognised the Trig point isn't actually the highest point. (Well it is, but only because of it's presence) So technically our first ascent with the whole family there to experience. Ice creams in Ravenglass topped things off.nukeboy125/06/2017

Parked in the lay by on the A595 near Muncaster Castle, by the phone box. Followed the right of way along Fell Lane, then boggy paths to the summit. Walk continued to Muncaster Fell summit. With JT and HT.Sprog17/12/2016
From sw, trig and outcrop to N, also the newly promoted E summit, as only visited Hooker Crag on last visit.RHW04/12/2016
A revisit for this years log, parking just up from the Castle car park. Lane is in better condition than previous, past the fish lake and then good path to the trig summit. The 'new' top could be seen a few hundred metres away across a lower lying area of land. Sheep tracks followed up through short bilberry, grass and heather to the top. Again looking back the trig top appears higher, optical effect perhaps.nordicstar21/09/2016
Done with Richard T & Stuart W from Ravenglass. Lovely weather and some stunning views from the top of Hooker Crag.falunty20/09/2016
