We parked near Blakey Fell and headed up the river Calder to the point where it meets Whoap Beck and managed to jump across a narrow section as it was in full spate. Would not recommend this low route in winter as its extremely wet and boggy. We heaed up to the summit and descended the same way. Wet grassy paths which sometimes disappear to the summit.

From Caw Fell. Direct ascent from the Intake Works at the head of Worm Gill. Easy grassy slopes. Descended northwest, crossed the Calder and walked back out to the van on Cold Fell Road by Burn Edge. Had a quick pint in The Fox and Hounds. Solo.Dangerous Dave19/08/2019

Approached the summit from Whoap and descended via the same route turning left down the Whoap Beck valley and back to the car on cold fell road.Theianwood45803/07/2019
Parked at the lower car park for a 28 mile circular walk. First I climbed Grike (488m), across to Lank Rigg (541m), Whoap (511m), and Crag Fell (522m) before descending back to the lake via the Crag Fell Pinnacles and Angler's Crag. From there completed the full loop of Ennerdale as far as Black Sail Hut and finished with a climb up Bowness Knott (333m).meltdiceburg23/06/2019
After meeting the man we made our way easily around Whoap and headed down to start the incline of Lank Rigg. I had convinced myself this was so hard and steep that in the end it wasnt half as bad and quickly made it to the top. Awesome summit and trig and views of the whole walk. We even found some Money underneath the rock as per the section in the Wainwright book. After a short break we headed down through the valley only stopping to get a stone out of my shoe. Made good time and such a barran but very very stunning place. We were soon heading back round Blakeley raise before getting back onto the road and heading back to the van. Really loved this walk much more than I ever thought I would. From there we stopped for a drink in the Stanley Arms in Calderdale bridge before heading the looong journey home for a quick rest. A day sesh in Liverpool.Scotty 2 Hotty19/06/2019

Parked at roadside at Blakeley Moss via Grike, Crag Fell, Whoap and then to Lank Rigg. Descended by the track from the Whoap/Lank Rigg col, but due to snow melt had to go north upstream to cross the first main burn nearer the forest edge. Rejoined the ascent track to Grike by going up through new planting.LizH04/02/2019

From Cold Fell Road at 066130; over moor then above Calder headwaters/ Whoap Beck to a nice col. Good path worn going SW to summit. Back same way, with Pete. AW would have needed a bag of florins; this is now clearly a popular walk- probably with locals and rightly so. A grey, dry day, cloud base about 2200 ft.pwheeler27/09/2017
