Evening walk from Settle over Warrendale Knotts and High Hill.Mark Jackson30/07/2018
1st of 6 tumps from Settle to Malham YHA, climbing up through Upper Settle then using cycle route 68, veering off at SD82567 63424, heading North then NE then SE to reduce the gradient before heading directly to the summit. Fantastic scenery, especially to the North with the Attermire Scars; great to be back in this part of the world since 2008 with my daughter (Settle and Malham). Descent SE to pick up Pennine Bridleway at Stockdale lane then over the knoll of Low Halsteads to reach open access land, heading for Rye Loaf Hill.Dazingdale24/03/2018

It appears that I identified the correct summit .... phew! Parking immediately beyond the stock pens at the start of Stockdale Lane (alt 297m). Down the lane for a short distance to a stile into the field. Follow the path all the way up to the col where a track leads to the summit. Really is not worth trying to short cut it as there is a nasty wall to climb on the direct line.4.5km return to include Warrendale Knotts. 80 minutesmoorsman18/02/2017
High Hill -> Warrendale Knotts -> Grizedales -> Kirkby Fell -> Rye Loaf Hill, parking at roadside 837629. Cold and foggy, but at least the bogs were partly frozen over at the top! Planned to park up by Stockdale farm as others and do it as 2 shorter walks - note that there are private road/no vehicles signs at the start of Stockdale Lane. It's a very good parking spot up there for anyone braver than me though :)the_adam21/01/2017

Parked on minor road out of Settle towards Airton. Set off towards Attermire Scar, then hung a left. Official summit is rocky limestone ridge but better viewpoint is a little further to the W and looks just as high.Aye Jimmy10/02/2014
After Dewey's to East used FP to skirt crags and scramble onto Warrendale. Finale on Sugar Loaf as wind briskness increases. Good circuit.nordicstar01/09/2013
