Parked on one of the 5 or 6 small hardstanding areas, just E. of Wrynose summit After bagging Wrynose Fell, headed E. across hillocky terrain to the summit cairn. Although it's only just over ½km from Wrynose Fell, a tough little walk. Same route back to car. (PM)gerrybowes08/08/2017

A strange day emotionally being as this was my last day on the hills before my 60th birthday in a few days time. Six new DoBh summits in the bag on a wet and dreary day. So how do i fare for over 45 years of bashing the hills? Lots of aches and pains, especially when i try to get out of the car after driving home. Knees ok but the occasional twinge, niggles away. Arthritis in my ankles can make walking on stony ground quite painful. Fitness has dropped but i do like my beer and food. Having said that a five hour round trip today over difficult ground so things can't be that bad! Heres to the next decade and many more summits.thenomad10/01/2017

Parking available mid way up Wrynose where the bridleway starts. From here it is possible to follow the track to the col and cut across to the summit. If including Wrynose Fell I suggest you park further up the road to a parking layby just east of Wrynose summit.moorsman06/03/2014
