Easy parking and ascent from SD 45547 91809DC11main24/11/2018
From church car park. Took the lane running up SE side Crossthwaite House.jonglew14/10/2018
16 degrees, sunshine and cloud, from east with Mike L.Wycombe Wanderer25/08/2018
Parked by the church and ascended by tracks and paths. There is a crossing point to the south east of the summit. Good viewpoint especially to the north west, but had no time to go further.JohnW22/03/2018
As Ronaldo from GR 455919, verge parking at track or a little higher up lane. Higher start than Crosthwaite and shorter. Simple climb up the hill, keep to left (South) of main wall for easier climb over the top wall to summit. Fine viewpoint.nordicstar11/12/2017

From Crosthwaite school approx as JB. Final summit climb brackeny but not bad. Unusual trig in grass below summit, classified as a bolt but if so it's under a metal cover. Only the second of this type I've seen, both in South LakesRHW05/09/2015

From Lord's Lot, fences to cross and in summer there'll be a lot of bracken. Visited large but lower cairn on the way. Grassy/rocky knoll on top and flowers had been laid out for someone. Found an unusual OS site close to summit. Descended to Crosthwaite, probably unofficial way, then back along road to starting point for Lord's Lot to W.Aye Jimmy04/03/2015
Involves a lot of nasty fences from Lord's Lot.peebs05/02/2015
Good road parking at Crosthwaite School. Head up track opposite for 80m then turn 2/3 R through a gate followed by 4 more as you head directly up the hill into the long, narrow field NW of summit. Don't climb the fence into the summit field until you are beneath the summit itself. I approached from Lord's Lot but descended this wayjimbloomer05/11/2014
