From the top end of Loanthwaite Lane, walked up Latterbarrow then via forest paths to Claife Heights. Disappointed by Claife Heights as the surrounding conifers have grown so tall that they obscure any view. Return to start point by different forest paths.Walkingmurphy18/01/2020

Parked on Loanthwaite Lane, straight up Latterbarrow, then worked my way through the woods past Three Dubs Tarn and onto Claife Heights, then virtually retraced my steps back to parking place.Chipstertrain28/01/2019
With John and Kim from the NT CP just north of the chain ferry. Up at Harrow Slack then north to Belle Grange before returning (in the dark) by way of the track along the shore.Newton Maximus04/01/2019

Circuit Hawkshead - Carron Crag - Satterthwaite - Far Sawrey - Claife Heights - Latterbarrow - Hawkshead.deknyff19/09/2018
From Far Sawrey starting at £2 honesty box car park at Braithwaite Hall. Walked to corner in B road then followed footpath signposted to Claife Heights but it did not lead to the summit and I was obliged to trespass SE along the ridge which is defended by young spruce, marsh, fallen trees, considerably more than England's access laws. Returned on the RoW path that I should have gone up, but that path is not signposted to Claife Heights in Far Sawtry.Topographer5714/09/2018
From Red Nab car park with a little loop around the top to take in Low Pate Crag and High Pate Crag with better views.squeegs25/07/2018
Parked at Near Sawrey - TRACKS - to Moss Eccles Tarn then Wise Een Tarn - Hollins Band Plantation - on towards Belle Grange but turned for the Heald (below the mast) then summit of Claife Heights (High Blind Howe) and trig -Far Sawrey then back along lane to Near Sawrey.briandavies17/06/2018
From Far Sawtry. A case of following paths. Yes it is far busier than it deserves to be though im not sure how many visit the top. Is this the only trig in cumbria you can step on to? My last Ma in region 34 so I stayed a while.. trampled the bracken around the oak sapling. Enjoyed the sunshine for a while and on my way back had a chat with a chap from Stirling who had earlier hit 600 marilyns in the Sedbergh area.stig_nest28/05/2018
Parked at the village hall in Far Sawrey. Paths and a short diversion to Scale Ivy Intakes, then a forest maze to reach Claife Heights, and AW's route back by lovely Moss Eccles Tarn.Nick Down109/05/2018

Up from Far Sawrey. Final Wainwright Outlying Fell. Celebrated with dram & Eccles Cake in splendid isolation. Not a great hill. Thought Scale Ivy Intakes was better. Oak sapling next to summit, choked by blasted bracken. Cleared it away & if everyone who visits the summit does the same, it should prosper.ngthack31/10/2017
From Far Sawry. Good track initially then a few boggy sections. Lunchtime run.N.Morters26/10/2017
Approached on good tracks/paths from the Northwest after firstly visiting Latterbarrow. Returned as outward,bypassing Latterbarrow to the South. On own.MorecambeMonkey23/10/2017
Summer House Knott, Summer Sides Wood, Finsthwaite Heights, Scale Ivy Intakes, Claife Heights, Latterbarrowkeithouk10/09/2017
First of 4 for the day, from Far Sawrey. An inexplicably popular walk, judging by the multitude of footprints on the nasty muddy track and boggy summit trail, though too early for anyone else to be about. The forest is a bit of a mess really, and the summit is enclosed by trees. The best bit is the walk across fields up to the forestry.Gill31/08/2017
From Latterbarrow. Head high bracken but the path was almost cleartrimarc223/08/2017
WOs 4,5 and 6. A lovely sunny day. Went up Latterbarrow from Hawkshead by W's route. Excellent views of Coniston, Langdale and Kentmere fells. Followed forest tracks to Claife Heights and returned to campsite for lunch. Both cycled to Grizedale in the afternoon and went up and down Carron Crag.BURGESS12/07/2017

Scale Ivy Intakes and Claife Heights from Far Sawrey. Pleasant walk and easier to follow than I feared. 3 1/2 miles round trip.clivevilla23/01/2017
In low cloud all day, so no views. Very slippy rock and mud abounded. Poor extraction work by the Forestry Commission hereabouts on PRoW, with no sign of repair.Karmakarl23/01/2017
Overcast day from Red Nab CP then picnic lunch at Moss Eccles Tarn, then ascending latter barrow, Scale Ivy Intakes, and Claife Heights then down, descending in the darkJoel45130/12/2016
With Umbrella Club (25 of us at start of walk!) on overcast day from Red Nab CP then picnic lunch at Moss Eccles Tarn, down to Far Sawrey Cuckoo Brow Inn for mulled wine/cider! Party split, some returning via lakeside whilst we joined Joel's hill-bagging party (Gordons, Harry D) back over Scale Ivy Intakes, High Pate Crag and Claife Heights then down via The Heald and Belle Grange, descending last bit in dark listening to hooting owls.zoob30/12/2016
