From the cattle grid, along near side of wood. Fence/wall easy enough to scale. Tracks to summit. Beautiful crisp, cold day.Clach Liath11/02/2019
Clear and cold. Good visibility.Roblex03/12/2018
An easy trudge up from the cattle grid on the B6362.lenman19/08/2018
Weather fair.MountainMac11/08/2018
Straight up and down from the cattle grid (no need for boots).SS12/06/2018
Parked cattle grid nt481455. Went up following left side of fence(E). clamber over 2 fences together and continue up the hill on left side of the wall(E). over gate near the top.G0HIO18/05/2018
From high point of B road just after sunset. Sheep at top. Some snow on ground. Rounsfell06/04/2018
Parked at the cattle grid. Good ATV track from the gate about 200m west of the plantation.Owen B31/03/2018
A pleasant stroll from the cattle grid, with nice views. Rather than walking west along the road to get to the gate (a bit suicidal), it's better to go up slightly into the woods and follow animal tracks parallel to the road, which lead to a small gate into the field. ATV tracks and sheep tracks then lead to the top.Gill08/02/2018
Took advantage of a lull in the bad weather for a day trip by train to Stow. Walked up the minor road to the SW and S of the hill. Quite pleasant as there is very little vehicular traffic. At NT477432 went through a gate and up to the summit of Sell Moor Hill. Only one intervening wall where there is a conveniently placed pedestrian gate. Back more or less same way.pwbellarby30/01/2018
From the cattle grid on B road to N - left side of wood - diagonally across wall corner - right side of wall to summit.Chris Peart29/10/2017
1/3 short walk from high point on road to north. Useful large Layby but strangely full of farmers building or doing something to drainage..round side of woods to wall/fence. Cross into west field then up to summit trigN.Morters24/06/2017
Train to Stow. Walked up very quiet minor road to w and SW of hill. A small path leads from a stile near entrance to Allanshaws, where road bends slightly right, next to first wind turbine. This path leads almost to top which is just before a wood on the right. Did this on a day of driving rain and mist. Returned same way.trimarc206/06/2017
with John Green from the road to the north. Grassy field with one fence to climb. 2.43km total there and back. 86m elevation gainvegibagger02/04/2017
Whilst staying with the Outlaws for the weekend. Met Bob in Stow. Ascended via path through trees (unofficial mtb trail) starting at NT462444. Continued along edge of trees (following fence/wall)then through trees via tree break running along fence-line (NT476444) to continue a more or less direct ascent towards the summit. Returned via B6362/Muirhouse farm; don't recommend this return route as the B road is fast/narrow. Try descending towards the C (yellow) road to the south if you prefer a circular route back to Stow.raffemeister14/08/2016
Straightforward ascent from the high point on the road, starting from the west side of the wood. Summit view towards Melrose ruined by wind farm.JohnW15/06/2016
Low cloud. From road high pointMartin6613/06/2016
Parked at 464451 (to get 150m climb) (05:50). Up road to corner of wood at 479455, over fence (no gate), S to gap in wall and track. Dry but mist; cows loomed in field but fortunately not at trig (6:30). Back same route; finish 7:05.dbb13/06/2016
From cattle grid on B6362. From Tanwell wall corner probably best to keep to the west side of the wall for a clear route to the summit without the need to climb fences. 20 minutes to reach the trig from the road.G4OBK (Phil)17/05/2016
Parked at 482455. Under a half hour return with GB. Took a track on the west side of the woods.bolton11/12/2015
Large layby by cattle grid at NT48172 45568 Over cattle grid & down road before heading up to pedestrian gate on western edge of wood Up field to gap in wall & picked up vehicle track to summit. (PM)gerrybowes11/12/2015
Took the Borders Railway to Stow and walked up passed the Post Office, then the graveyard. Then to Muirhouse farm, through the courtyard then passed the small reservoir onto the open hillside. two fences to negotiate to enter and exit woods. Cows present on the summit.Robinho0813/09/2015
Parked at the cattle grid. Struggled through the trees. Foolish. On the return from the top, when I got back to the SE corner of the trees, I crossed into the field to the east and walked back to the castle grid.aul-fogie13/08/2015
Parked at the parking area by the cattle grid and followed BigJ's directions. A gate by the wood leads to a field. A gap in the wall, with no electric fence then leads to an ATV track that leads all the way to the summit.Sprog27/05/2015
From cattle grid on B road.tim74718/03/2015
Parked in layby beside the cattle grid. There is a pedestrian gate near the west corner of the wood where it meets the road. Followed a vehicle track right up to the trig. Fantastic views all round. With CJ.BigJ12/03/2015
