Walked from Brown Howe on my own. Warm but hazy The walk from Wool Knot to this summit is a bit boggy in places and I wouldn't recommend wearing shorts to walk up the narrow path through the heather. I did and my legs were covered in scratches. The walk is definitely worth it for the wonderful views of the Coniston Fells.flockwatcher10/04/2015

Circular walk from grass verge at SD 28279 91486. Coats Hill (didn't summit) > Anne Riggs (2nd visit) > Green How > Yew Bank > Fisher High > Wool Knott (2nd visit) > Beacon Fell (2nd visit). Quite a rough outing with plenty of pathless stuff. Close proximity of farmer on quad-bike made us retire gracefully from attempt of Coats Hill. Although we did get very close to the summit - it wasn't close enough!David Gradwell15/04/2014
