From Rosgill. wet walk and forgot boots!Dunks19/08/2017
WOs 79-85; Bs 66-72. Found we could have an extra week in the Lakes so decided to bag all the Shap fells and so do all the Outliers in one go. Started with basically a reverse of W's Naddle Forest horseshoe. From end of path above the farm through thick bracken, reeds and bog to the first nameless top, then more bracken but picked up an intermittent path over Hugh Laithes Pike, Wallow Crag and Naddle High Forest, adding Naddle Low Forest. Joyce returned down the valley. Then a horrid rough ascent to Hare Shaw and rough ground over Powley's Hill to the very boggy track. Harper Hills and Scalebarrow Knott made an easier finish and Joyce picked me up at the waterworks road. Good, clear weather but hard work.BURGESS08/08/2017

Roadside parking on the road north of Naddle Farm then a brisk walk THROUGH the farm (ignoring the bridleway marker as you enter the farmyard), turning left after 100 yards along a good path to the summit ridge. Then turn right along the ridge path which can be followed almost to the summit.moorsman19/06/2014
