167809/06/2013NY 98518 44890  F: Grassy bump near trig.
O: Ground seems to rise towards the track to WSW. Suggest stone/concrete at NY 98435 44862 as possible contender for summit.

With Jo, from Fell Haven along Wilkinson’s Cut, returning along road. Weather: overcast, breezy, good visibility.amblerbob30/06/2016
Started at Fell Haven and walked along Wilkinson's Cut to Meadows Edge and then the track to the mast branching off right off the track onto another track which was followed to the trig and top. Next a walk along the moor to the B6278 by a small quarry marked on the 2.5 OS map but couldn't see it. Over the road and across the moor to the top of Collier Law and down the mast track to Fell Haven. Moor a bit wet in places and quite a bit of quod bike track to help. Definitely a grouse moor with the odd grouse flying up from the ground by my feet.MikeM10/04/2016
Parked half way up track then straight to trig and summit, back via mast.SS12/03/2016

Easy bag. Drove to mast at dusk, short walk to trig over possibly higher ground. Not bad for an autumnal stroll after work.nordicstar29/10/2014

Drove up track a little way to better parking at track junction at NY 98536 44730 (510m) Okay, I accept this was a very easy bag but nobody says you can't park over 10 miles away if you prefer!David Gradwell27/07/2013
Must be easiest Dewey? Not convinced that highest point is near the trig, whole area seems to rise towards the masts.Aye Jimmy09/06/2013
Easily parked to south.destaylor03/05/2013
Pass by this regurlarly and never bothered having a look up, trekked up from road for great views at top followed by drop into Eudon Valley for poke about old workings.Poosticks17/04/2013
In a dozen years of peak-bagging this must be the easiest. Parking due south on the minor road, distance to the trig was about 300 yards with 72ft of ascent! Afterwards walked to Bolts Law, for a decent walk.Crib Goch05/11/2012
Running loop from Edmundbuyers taking in this and Bolt's Law.jhodson05/02/2012

Part of a Triangle of Dewey's. Used a mountain bike for all Dewey's. Short steep road leads to Radio mast, but trig point is 50 metres east of it. Possible to drive up there I think. Lots of rubble from a larger demolished building.Jhimmy02/04/2009
w Darren. in passing for other Deweys.Chris Pearson02/08/2006
Near to home and a short walk to the top here.Walker Dan01/03/2003
