The Old Man of Coniston has an impressive collection of corries and despite the old mines present, they are still a wild place with some of the corries having no paths in them. The Old Man itself is very popular and the ridge connecting it with Swirl How is often very busy. The paths around here are all well worn so navigation problems tend not to be so troublesome.
