With GN from Seathwaite, via gorge to Grassguards, then South and off track to top.back to track and South to Low Wallbarrow. GN fetched car as I was limping badly.trimarc223/02/2020
Like many others this is my last Fellranger. Room for a couple of cars at SD 22489 96016. Thrashed my way from the top of the bridleway to the summit, then found a decent if faint track leading to the bridleway at SD 22102 96914DC11main16/06/2019
There is a choice of 2 good parking places in Seathwaite. One is opposite the church (free) and one closer to the pub with a requested donation of £2. From these it is a simple to follow rfoute to the summit. 5.24km return, 90 minutes.moorsman08/05/2019
From Seathwaite Hall, busy with rock climbers today, summit doesn't look like it gets much attention.rhalstead21/04/2019

A walk through from Seathwaite Chapel to Eskdale Green. With Bryher, who was as always a great walking companion.jenx26/02/2019
Straight up from the bridleway. On the way down to Seathwaite at the end of a good day out. Great views.Moorponder01/01/2019
Parked at Seathwaite Church, along the beck, up from South side of Pen, back to bridge over Duddon, along to Wallowbarrow Crag, via Furness Way, then up to Wallowbarrow Heald and Iron Crag. TIP: when returning to Furness Way main track after Wallowbarrow, stay on left hand side of the big wall before the double gateway - much much easier up this left hand side (I did the right hand side and cussed - a lot!) A hard walk for something so low level as very tussocky underfoot. Again, ok re Bracken in December, would not enjoy in summer. Tough day, allow extra time.nickywood128/12/2018

From High Wallabarrow, first in a round of 10 hills out to Great Whinscale in high winds and driving rain. Staying at the Wallaborrow camping barn.jonglew17/12/2017

Started at 2pm with more cloud bubbling up. Climb not as steep as expected so more enjoyable. Just managed to reach top before rain arrived. Back at car 3.30pm having had good day's walking in best of weather.Peak Rambler16/08/2017
From Seathwaite on to Wallowbarrow Heald.Eddie12/08/2017
Final Fellranger top, over 30 years since the first (Coniston Old Man) and over a year since penultimate top (Little Stand), which shows how seriously I take this list! Lovely walk from limited parking opposite School House in Seathwaite through oak woods on RoW. Tried to approach top from north on highest point on bridleway, seemed logical but this was a mistake as heavy going. Found best path down, which leaves the bridleway by a large flat topped boulder about 12 metres after single ash tree overhangs stone wall by BW, just after farmhouse on left.Hillsidenick18/07/2017
My final Fellranger. Lovely walk up from Seathwaite. Small car park by church. With Evan, Sail, Coel & Alfie.Dangerous Dave06/05/2017

From Wallowbarrow Heald. Decent little Fell. On to Great Worm Crag.Wycombe Wanderer15/12/2016
Parked just beyond Newfield inn. An 80 minute return walk to this vantage point via High Wallowbarrow. Why did Wainwright not include this one? Our last Fellranger - with GB. Into the Inn to celebrate also completion of the Outliers.bolton08/12/2016
Parked in the small car park next to Seathwaite Parish Room at 229961 (£2 donation) – W. along road to School House & then RoW over two footbridges to High Wallowbarrow – Bridleway & then faint path to summit. Final Fellranger! (PM)gerrybowes08/12/2016

From Newfield Inn with Des. Completed my Fell Ranger list although when I started it did not exist! Lovely walk via High Wallowbarrow. A perfect Lakeland fell. Thanks Des! Thinking of taking up hill bagging as a hobby.mick24/11/2015
As Mick. But not finished the Fellrangers.destaylor24/11/2015
A pleasant walk from Newfield Inn with a good summit view.JohnW06/10/2015
Nice walk from Fickle steps, Grassguards and back via High Wallowbarrow and Pub. Wallowbarrow Heald and Iron Crag not recommended as extension to this walk.PeteF25/07/2015
With Wallowbarrow Heald & Iron Crag from Seathwaite.David Gradwell07/05/2015
Lovely walking from the road near the pub, along Rake Beck and great close up views of the crag. Great sunset from the top, didn't see a soul.James McKnight24/01/2015
4 hour walk starting from Stickle Pike road top meant an unusual downhill road walk start to the day (sadly cloudy - no hoped for icy magic and sun above low fog like yesterday). We had once stayed in the cottage at High Wallowbarrow Farm and helped (largely watched) Chris the NT tenant farmer lambing. I may have been to the actual top before in the 80s/ 90's when I climbed here a few times, but cant recall - seems unlikely as it would have been extra uphill flounder from the top of the climbs in rock boots through heather and tussocks.Chris Pearson30/12/2014

Climbing with Colin Kenning & Vibram MC. Probably never went to actual summit which is set back from crag top. Hot, becoming hotter - sunburn. I was just beginning climbing so 2nd role. Got up Thomas -a trade route Severe which was great fun in EBs and mighty pleased to get up, but still clinging to the belay ledges for dear life until settled on the belay! Returned several times over the years to climb this sheltered south facing crag.Chris Pearson15/06/1986
Over there for a climbing club dinner; did three routes on the crag too.Aye Jimmy18/01/1975
