From car park to SW after sleeping in Sedbergh. Sunny, warm, light breeze. Out and back Rounsfell20/09/2019
Parked near Moorcock Inn, took 3.5 litres of water and drank the lot. Hot day on hill plus a slog. Not one I would repeat. Company: Soloiandesbottes15/05/2019
From the big car park to the West at SH204. Longer than anticipated from this side. After Knoutberry Haw it's a bit boggy and the summit reward is just a few stones.NormanW25/02/2019

Late afternoon run from the viewpoint car park. Mainly easy going on paths and thin grass helped by slight frozen turff. Nice sunset, chuffed with 40mins down from summit, last km in darkN.Morters13/12/2018

From end of the Grisedale Rd (SD 7764 9368). Some benchmarking with Roger T to Rawthey Gill Foot then up SE side of Rawthey Gill to Knoutberry Haw and on to here. Continued with the wall to hit the Grisedale Rd near Double Hole Bridge and return to car.jonglew20/07/2018

From car park on A684, down minor road to bridge, up a bit, up drive to Gardsdale Foot, up track and eventually followed fence all the way to Knoutberry Haw. Mostly pathless but fairly easy going. Then across the moor to Baugh Fell. 7.75 miles 3 hours.clivevilla12/04/2018

With K from E. Long slog in wind and rain.Ashley11/06/2017
Wild camped at West Baugh Fell Tarn, walked over Knoutberry Haw then onto here. Cold wind but brightening up. Tried to have a look at the East Tarns but ground was too boggy to approach. Wonderful birdsong and a lot of voles about. Easy path down to Garsdale with excellent views.Jake99401/06/2017
From Uldale road end. Via River Rawthey and Rawthey gill. Returned across open moor from Knoutberry Haw, almost got stuck in bog. Fine day, ground very dry, apart from bog. Did not see another soul apart from H and sheep.johnkaysleftleg07/05/2017
From Campsite at Cross Hall Farm SD 68781-93828 via Knoutberry Haw. Returned Back via Knoutberry HawWestdenewalker27/04/2017
From Rathay Bridge to Uldale House, up the path to where the gill forks and then up rathay gill until I had to break out onto the moor and head for the top of Tarn Rigg Hill (tough going and swampy). Followed the wall to Baugh Fell and then a surprisingly easy walk to West Baugh Tarn however the descent to Uldale House was rough going.reaper18/04/2017

Took train from Leeds to Garsdale. up and down in 4hr 20 min. A bit of a slog, but views of lots of other hills were great.IanHHill19/10/2016
From Uldale via the interesting Rawthey Gill. Nice easy walking on the top and surpringly dry, though worse on the long decent N back to Uldale.milimana09/10/2016
From road to East. There are a couple of farm tracks leading up to summit plateautrimarc222/09/2016
Nuttall walk 11.2 with Frank and Steve from Uldale. Warm but with some rain.Lou31/07/2016
A beautiful walk up from Uldale by the Rawthay waterfalls, up to the ridge and then down to St Mark's B and B on the A683 Sedburgh-Kirkby Stephen road. Use of two cars made for an interesting walk on a glorious day, with views of the Howgills, Yorkshire Dales, Pennines and Lake District.ruthatlast23/07/2016
6 mile there and back walk from road east of Baugh Fell, bagged Baugh Fells featureless summit and along to trig on Knoutberry Haw, serious wilderness had to climb a few walls to get to the highest ground, high cloud, bagged Dufton Pike, Knock Pike and Brownber Hill in sun earlier that day. Didn't see anyone.DanTrig16/05/2016
From Grisdale, via Stoney Rigg and Knoutberry Haw. Descent via Grisdale Pike. NNick Caunt21/04/2016
From Cross Hall via the Sarthwaite bridleway, followed by a circuit of the tarns, out to West Baugh Fell, and down via Birks. Lots of off piste walking, but the going was really easy and not very boggy at all. Rather a pleasant walk, with surprising scenery in the Gills.Gill17/04/2016
From lonely, lovely Grisedale- farmer showed me a good place to park at Moor Rigg, then a sketchy (initially marked)route over pastures and then between Hastaw Gill and Grisedale Gill to the top. Very fine way back, via Grisedale Pike, the highlight. Ignore directions in guide books etc and work out a logical route back, towards East Scale.I had a little flounder about in a boggy valley first,but this was a very fine wild Pennine walk. Back in 1989, I went up Rawthey Gill to the Knuotberry Haw top with John Lowther- another fine route on this big hill. It was well worth the 2nd visit: 2nd time to the very top! These walks are both in Wainwrights Howgills Fells- still a good guide to inspire but there is now no way down directly via High Laithe. The new plantation on up-to-date maps is a clue!pwheeler10/09/2015
From car park on A684.There is actually what appears to be a landrover track which runs all the way from the gate into the access land to the summit of Knoutberry Haw and which avoids most of the boggy spots.Grand long distance views today for my 1000th hill/tump.catman04/09/2015
From car park on A684.Garsdale Foot-Knoutberry Haw-Tarn Rigg Hill.Back same way.With Catman.oscarrosie04/09/2015
Kirkby Stephen to Garsdale via Nateby, Birkett Common, Little Fell, Wild Boar Fell, Swarth Fell, Knoutberry Haw and Baugh Fell. Faint path along wall all the way from Garsdale (and on to Knoutberry Haw). Much easier with slight path and accompanying wall - and in descent! What a lump of a hill.Mark Jackson29/07/2015
Overnighted in tent alongside the lane to Uldale farm. Early start benefitted from that lovely fresh morning air. followed Beck past waterfalls - all reachable if you're prepared to walk in the stream. Cut the corner off and headed direct for valley head. can't recommend doing this..pathless, very wet, tough going. topped out about 2km from trig and continued to higher eastern top, returned pathless mainly beyond w. baugh tarn. actual summit didnt seem marked. grand views though.stig_nest25/07/2015
2mFM Radio Activation NP-012. Parked in layby Grisedale east side and walked up quadbike track. Nice day.Petem0hqo16/04/2015
From Garsdale viewpoint car park (SD694912). Didn't find the helpful ATV tracks until we'd been heading up Ringing Keld Gutter for a while. Followed them on the way back down. Route and write-up at: http://gayleybird.blogspot.co.uk/2015/04/baugh-fell-tarn-rigg-hill-and-aye-gill.htmlGayle07/04/2015
From Rawthay bridge - we ascended via Bluecaster Flank - Raven Thorn - slow grassy - hard going in the warmth. The top saucer like with its tarn disused quarries currocks - its high point (Tarn Rigg Hill) on the far rim (unmarked). We descend via Rawthey Gill the sides of Baugh bulging ever higher above. After some nifty river hopping we follow Uldale back to our start.briandavies06/04/2015
Started at car park at SD694 912, Followed Ringing Keld Gutter up to Knoutberry Haw, across to Tarn Rigg Hill and then across to Gill Head and down Rawthey Gill to SD 745 947 and followed fence which goes up to top of Swarth Fell. Views at Swarth Fell were incredible, Pennines, Howgills, Cumbrian Fells, Morecambe Bay. Then, ridge to Wild Boar Fell. Down to Sand Tarn and then straight line to SD 730 971. Long walk back to car along A683 and some of the parallel tracks. Crossed river at SD 682 917. Easter Saturday and didn't see a single soul.tsharp04/04/2015

FOSCLA walk with John L. 564 bus from Dent to near Sedbergh, flat walking to start with by the river, then a long pull up the hill - easy navigation by the wall, but tedious; a big brute of a hill, there are more enjoyable ones hereabouts.JOHNS18/10/2014
Walked on my own from Rawthey Bridge. Very hot and sunny This was tough walk due to the narrow or non existent paths. Had to rely heavily on compass bearings. Not a walk to attempt in bad weather. On the plus side the views of the Howgills on the descent are wonderful and there are some very pretty waterfalls.flockwatcher17/07/2014
This summit seemed lower than the one to the west, despite what the map says.CMR11430/05/2014

I parked at Riggs on the Grisedale Road and set off due west in a straight line. There was an awkward stream crossing and then a steady climb. Once the ground started to flatten, however, there was a series of peat hags to negotiate before the summit, which is very flat and marked by some stones.peter4lc11/04/2014
From Garsdale Ft carpark. 4wd track most of the way to summit. Radio hams at trig point who were baggers. Mist lifted as got to true summit. Pleasant hill After Aye GillThearlaichdubh01/04/2014
A difficult walk & joint activation with Geoff 2E0NON. We then went on to and do Aye Gill Pike.G4OOE01/04/2014
