Parked at Church Bridge below Troutbeck, then straight up to Sour Howes, north along the ridge to Sallows, and back down to Church Bridge along the Garburn Road. Then up the other side through Troutbeck and along Nanny Lane to Wansfell Pike - busy. North along the ridge to both summits at Baystones. Continued north down to the A592, then across tough ground to Troutbeck Tongue, before dropping steeply down into the valley and back to Troutbeck. All the ground is saturated - especially the section from Wansfell to Troutbeck Tongue! 22km with nearly 1200m ascent, taking me 8 hours, just in the daylight throughout!silverwolf_alan01/01/2024

Another gorgeous sunny morning after a sharp overnight freeze - bogs mostly frozen and ice around. with L up from Troutbeck. Along the ridge to Wansfell Pike - 25 people crowded on summit at 11am on a sparking Saturday . We passed another 57 (!) on our Nanny Lane descent back for lunch. My 11th ascent.Chris Pearson25/11/2023

3pm solo ascent after the rain stopped and having just arrived back at Troutbeck for 4 days. For a change I carried along Nanny lane to the end where a waterlogged path led up to Baystones. Dry and breezy under grey skies for a gentle jog along the switchback ridge to Wansfell Pike. 8 days until the OMM in N Wales so sort of tapering. Jogged down a new route for me -the lovely Jenkin Wood path with glimmering views over Windermere as a shy sun came out and back around to Troutbeck with wet feet in my fell shoes but dry otherwise.Chris Pearson19/10/2023

From Troutbeck Bridge: Sour Howes, Sallows, Yoke, Ill Bell, Froswick, Troutbeck Tongue, then a rather rough and tiresome fight across to Baystones before dropping back to Troutbeck. 21km, 5h 50. Stunningly clear and cold.Rockdoctor15/10/2023

Family wainwright with all the Lilly's including Rupert, Bassett's, Chris, Nathan and Rachel. Parked up Troutbeck and walked over Nanny Lane up to Baystones - very wet and cloudy, particularly on top. G,D&R went back down to their car, and we continued on top Wansfell pike. The weather cleared and we got some decent views over Windermere. Dropped down into Ambleside, had a quick dip under Stockgill force before heading to the Inn for a pint and chippies.ByronHaywood01/08/2023

My 8th ascent but 17 years since I was last up here when fixated for several years trying to piece together a self-created 24 marilyn run in 24 hours. Since then marilyn status has gone down to a Hump and there has been an attempt to unravel the summit location muddle. The original quoted summit location based on the 487m spot height is apparently 486.1m and looks lower the nearby true summit S of the wall. Both identified & visited today. Up boggily once off Nanny Lane from Toutbeck with L where we are house-sitiing for 5 days. Boggy bumpy ridge path (lots of recent rain) to Wansfell Pike (diverting to the P20 top on the way). Views of The Langdales where I'll be doing the OMM this time next week -slow and warm this year due to both D & I recovering from various ills.Chris Pearson22/10/2022

Today's plan was just to do Wansfell. We started from close to the church, headed up to the Wainwright top of Wansfell, over to the tourist spot for Wansfell, down towards Ambleside and back to the car via Jenkins Cragg. Considering it is October it was very busy. Plus it chucked it down on the tourist top so we didn't get proper views from there.JThorn08/10/2022
