Drove up to highest point I could then just slogged across to the summit. Quite pleasant view. Company: Soloiandesbottes15/05/2019
From Stang House, plenty roadside parking. ATV tracks mostly to trig pillar first. All flat at the top; from summit trig looks clearly higher, but guess it's been levelled.jonglew28/01/2019

From Stang House. A gamekeeper in an all terrain vehicle watched me all the way back from the top and kept about 250 yards from me. He zoomed off as soon as I was back on the roadtrimarc222/03/2018
4/5M parked near stang house atv track then soft ground to the top.robertphillips22/10/2017
From top of the pass where theres plenty of parking. A drive up from Stafford for a few Northern Marilyns and as the forecast was wet I elected to come here first - before the rains. The going underfoot not that bad but visibility being good no doubt helped too. Summit is barely higher than the trigpoint. A huge sky -one can only imagine what it's like to be up here on a clear starry night.stig_nest12/09/2017
With K; RM turned back after wetting ankle support in a bog. From high point on road. Terrain not terrible but a few drains/dykes to negotiate.Ashley12/08/2017
Walked up obvious keepers' landrover track on E side of Hurr Gill from Stang House. From near head of the gill- many grouse butts there- followed less defined tracks to featureless summit area so went to trig point and walked SW. I agree- the high point is much more than 200 m away. Worth visiting the trig first for orientation and better views. Back to area with lots of butts then back down the good track. E wind, sunny and dry (very dry ground), further E looked very grey.pwheeler09/05/2017

Up & down east bank of Hurr Gill.ngthack25/10/2016
Parked just above Stang House. Tracks and paths up east side of Hurr Gill stream to grouse butts makes for easy walking. Came back down west side. BIG mistake. Best to return down east side. Nice walk in spite of heavy drizzle and 50m visibility.Minto12/10/2016
From the high point on the Stang road. Pretty wet underfoot.jenx29/09/2016
A repeat with Jenx, from road highpoint. Some tracks now at start but these soon give out to the rough furze and boggy ground. Visited the 'new' top and the trig again. Good views to Northnordicstar29/09/2016

From the CP at the county border. Surprised that so many people have given this a decent writeup - I found it a really boring slog - not even much ascent to work up a sweat.Crib Goch03/10/2015
Made a bee-line for the top from the car park at the county boundary, returned via the trig point. Pleased to meet fellow bagger Richard at the car park - and discovered we had a mutual friend in assynt_bobmartin_hall28/09/2015
Parked a little above Stang House and followed tracks up the east side of Hurr Gill to a series of grouse butts, then a short walk to the Trig Point, and then across the plateau to the summit. Thankfully very dry!Fisky Boy03/07/2015

Scampered up this after 9 Standards Rigg. Crossing the moor from County boundary was pretty boggy, but it's a very atmospheric summit plateau. Loads of moorland birds. Finding the highest point is fun!Gill07/05/2015
From the layby which sits on the county boundary to the SE. Route and write-up at: http://gayleybird.blogspot.co.uk/2015/04/hoove-and-dodd-fell-hill.htmlGayle09/04/2015
