WOs 46; Bs 42,43,44 and 45. A showery day but stayed mostly dry. Parked on the Eskdale to Ulpha road below Great Worm Crag and went straight up over rough ground. Difficult terrain continued over White How, Broad Crag and Great Crag with no paths and so-called path back mentioned by W as outward route was continuous bog and very unpleasant.BURGESS27/07/2017

Firm grass verge parking about 200m NW of cattle grid at 184959 (Space for 1 car). Included in an anticlockwise circuit of the 8 Birketts, starting with Great Worm Crag & finishing on Great Crag. Some tough going during second half of walk. (PM)gerrybowes02/11/2016

From Birkerthwaite via Green Crag. Birkerthwaite - Great Crag - Black Crag - Broad Crag - Green Crag - White How - Great Worm Crag - BirkerthwaiteCorbett18/03/2015
Very rough energy sapping ascent over tussocky grass (and high wall climb) via Wallowbarrow Heald and Iron Crag from Hollin How to the east besides Wallowbarrow Crag. Found a much better way on my return via High and Low Stoneythwaite farms. This has a good path that gets fainter higher up, but can still be followed to the gate in the wall to the west of Iron Crag.Nick Caunt04/03/2015
