Both Muncaster Fell tops and Silver Knott from layby close to Muncaster Castle CP.clivevilla22/09/2017
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

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

Solo from Muncaster Castle car park. Very pleasant quick up and down. Whole ridge looks very worthwhile.iredale17/06/2014
Muncaster Fell can be very wet underfoot, on this occasion not so, but the top was in mist from sea level up. The small Spruce midway on the hill still had Xmas decorations on it.Karmakarl15/05/2014
