Trig pillar S5003 picked out with a hint of yellow. Phew that the ground 300m ESE is just a bit lower.vegibagger08/12/2018
Walked from Kearsden, first of 3 along the border ridge.IanHHill28/08/2018
From Hailshowers Fell. Bit boggier now, fell in a few holes. Paused at summit for a couple of minutes to admire Whernside and Ingleborough and give thanks. Returned to road at Bowland Knotts (which looks more impressive from this direction). 2.5 hoursWycombe Wanderer11/08/2018
After Bowland Knotts and Hailshowers Fell. Concur with previous entry. A hard walk in the heather even in the dry. Cut the corner on the way back. More heather but saved half hour. Not a good idea in wetLongwojo23/06/2018
Solo. Parked about 100 mtrs down Petersbottom Lane. Followed vehicle track to shooting box (the O.S. designation doesn't do it justice, it's a substantial dwelling). From there continued on an ATV track (not shown on O.S. map) that leads to the trig pt. Excellent views from the summit. A good one. 66 mins.ADT05/04/2018
This, Hailshowers and Bowland Knotts, a hard walkbardolph22/05/2017
Swampy watershed not shedding very well after a night of rain. Bowland Knotts- Hailshowers Hill- Burn Moor. The middle km of alternating swamp and trackless heather almost being worthy of a typical leg on the Karrimor (OMM). Descent N was actually nice - firm ground and then a grassy track with sunny views ahead of Ingleborough. 14 mile walk with L from Eldroth cottage.Chris Pearson28/10/2016
As Aye Jimmy parking on rough grass verge at SD 67324 65339. An excellent route.David Gradwell16/06/2016
From WNW. Tracks all the way.jimbloomer02/06/2016
With Jo, from Slaidburn Road. Echoing catman's thanks to moorsman and AJ for providing details for an easy stroll to the summit. Also visited possible alternative summit, east. Weather, cloudy, mild, good visibility.amblerbob22/04/2016
After Bowland Knotts & Hailshowers Fell. Back same way. Bit of a bog trog. Hail & thunderstorm.ngthack27/03/2016
Thanks to Moorsman and Aye Jimmy for quick,easy and, above all,dry route.Excellent views of Three Peaks on cool,clear day.catman03/02/2016
Parking available at the junction with the road and Petersbottom Lane (alt 850 ft). Follow this to the end of the wall. If you turn left and head up to the shooting house you will pick up a track leading all the way to the summit. 3.11 easy miles Just over an hour.moorsman23/10/2015
From Bowland Knotts road top to Clapham station after CMC reunion meet - showery day.Smudge02/08/2015
From WNW, lane to Croasdale Grains farm. Branched off lane up past shooting hut then a very pleasant amble at gentle angle all the way to a trigpoint on top. Continued a few hundred metres to another bump of similar height with prominent tuft of reeds on skyline (actually in a pond) - just in case...Aye Jimmy30/03/2014
Pleasant walk from Bentham- Slaidburn road, about 3 miles. Shooting track all the way to trig. Great views all round, especially 3 Peakscitygent14/11/2013
