From Great Tosson; Simonside and Tosson Hill first. On return followed fenceline roughly NE to Main Stone, then outward path picked up. Met jhimmy on Simonside.jonglew29/10/2019
I was on top a good 15 minutes before Jon Glew. I noticed a 4x4 almost looking at me from the forest tracks. 5 minutes later 2 Forest rangers came up to ask what I was doing standing in the middle of nowhere...I sometimes wonder myself. They'd never heard of bagging before and was suprised anyone wanted to be there. After a good chat, Jon Glew appeared to prove I wasn't the only mad bagger around. Got back to car just before dark.Jhimmy29/10/2019
Good parking at start of BW to Ncarole engel29/07/2019
Simonside, Tosson Hill then this one following path and tracks. Hop over fence to top near stones. Back same way.PeterD27/11/2018
As moorsman 16/7/2016. Quite a long walk for a single tump as the track zigzags all over the hill, but the alternative bashing through knee deep heather didn't appeal.Crib Goch24/07/2017
From Hepple Whitefield. Lovely hill with good views.Moorponder16/07/2017
Used moorsman's approach until past shooting box then direct to summit for last 800m, some cuts in heather. There's a three rock cairn in deep heather at top, difficult to see until you're almost on top of it.Aye Jimmy12/09/2016
Take the easy route and approach from the north. Large parking area at the entrance to Hepple Whitefield farm. From here a wide, solid, stoned track leads right up to the trees east of the summit. At this point another good track starts running west to within 30m of the summit itself. 5.5 miles return. 2 hours.moorsman16/07/2016
