Very similar to assynt_bob.David Evans22/07/2019
With Val. From 352m high point WSW of summit and followed track to its end then path to TP. Got back down to the track and realised that the TP is not the highest point so went back to enable The hill to be ticked with a clear conscience. Lots of fly tipping on the road at the parking areamike.hoult10/05/2019
Nice walk up from Trawden...returned via Wycoller...amazing long range views.steven ruffles05/05/2019
From the layby to N of the 389m spot height, Lad Law, then mostly following the boundary stones across to Withins Height (both tops because I forgot which was the right one!) From there back down past the reservoirs and up the road, stopping off for Hameldon on the way to the car. First real walk of 2019 so it felt a lot longer than expected... Except for a few small patches the moors seemed surprisingly dry, I wouldn't like to try this route after heavy rain though!the_adam13/04/2019

Started from Wycoller and followed the Bronte Way to the Summit where we had fantastic 360deg views. Descended to Trawden and followed field paths back to WycollerWayne Mac25/08/2018
Evening run from SW highpoint 389. Followed the obvious track. Remarkable made from dressed cut stone rubble, did someone pull down a mill? At the end of track a decent path cuts over the stream, easy going in the descent dry weather. Unusual stone shape sofa just before the plateau. Great views to Pendle Hill in sunsetN.Morters24/07/2018
Walked on my own from Trawden. Glorious sunshine with the occasional breeze. A lovely walk with tremendous views from the summit.flockwatcher22/06/2018
KJ 100th Dewey. Gloriously sunny day and walked up to the end of the Oil Road before following the clear track which after the recent good weather was springy and bouncy rather than a squelchy plod. Very easy climb to whitewashed trig and what we are now told was the Slaughter Stone which we sat on to eat lunch.crazy20/05/2018
Followed good track then fainter track up to trig and HP rocksPeterD11/05/2018
Parked NW of 389m spot height. Easy walk along track to NE of 389m spot height, and when the marked land rover track finished I followed a walkers path straight to summit. Nice walk.assynt_bob02/05/2018
Freshly white painted trig within a small area of outcropping rocks with extensive wild but hazy moorland views in biting east wind and sun. High class graffitti carved into rocks. Great wild view point. Near Stile is an outcropping rock of similar height. Approached from excellent track to the South ( 389m) and then over rough path to summit. Parking awkward, but just about possible in small layby to west.Denise 24/02/2018
Parked at wycollar country park . Walked through wycollar and picked up Bronte way. Followed until water works then went uphill. Lying snow from halfway up, about 3 or 4 inches at top. Placed my feet in the footsteps of someone who had been up before me. Great view across to snow covered Pendle at the top. Returned same route. 3hours round trip with RosieLongwojo04/02/2018
From SW. Up the excellent grassy track, down to the turning circle, from where a path crosses stream and leads to the summit. 55 mins round trip. Met a local who said the track was built in the 1960s for oil exploration.Minto05/11/2017
3/5M from the west grass track to end then faint path to the top.robertphillips03/11/2017
Tricky roadside parking at the saddle (392m spot height). Good track for half the distance, then broke off NNW to search for boundary stones (2 found) before taking a direct line to the top just before reaching Joiners' Stones. Took the path back (not shown on my map).jonglew03/11/2017
Climbed from Trawdenadiosboss29/10/2017

With Dad and Mike. From nr Trawden parked by bench at side of road at SD920377. Walked through farmyard at SD921375 and ascended past water works. Traversed summit from NE to SW and descended back to Bronte way to return via outward route.raffemeister10/09/2017
Left Widdop res. road at pt.392m at 09:10 and followed track into the wilderness. Hadnt spotted it dropped down a fair bit before the track end. A path of sorts then crosses the stream and across boggy ground until the gradient increases. Little chance of a view at this time of the day but there we are. Trig pillar rather resplendant.stig_nest06/09/2017
Pendle Walking Festival. From Aisled Barn, Wycoller Country Park. With a large group including J.B.ADT12/08/2017
Widdop Res. road, just west of the high point is parking for @ 2 cars on a scruffy piece of ground, 918337. Dry but windy to start, track all the way from high point. Good views from top for about 3 mins, then drizzle, mist and clag all the way back.iangalbraith01/07/2017

From Widdop car park in mist. Continued on compass bearings along the ridge to Crow Hill and Withens, then back along the Pennine Way.davidpettit8419/02/2017
3rd hill of 5 today on a route from Cornholme to Brierfield station, climbing Hoof stones height in misty weather with sunshine breaking through after Hameldon, then followed track close to Birkin Clough to minor road (cycle route 68 again) where I had my lunch on a boulder before ascending to lovely green track following it NE then branching off North to climb onto ridge to 1st summit (beautiful Rocky tor) and then trig point with obviously higher rock. Descent on track past Abbot Stone, becoming increasingly boggier through Bedding Hill Moor to join the Bronte way.Dazingdale18/02/2017
Rush from Trawden. (Wet) paths all the way, as shown on the 1:25000. Then the unmapped path SW to the big track west, to the road.Pete R21/12/2016
On my own, from Coldwell Reservoirs, using the permissive paths. Nice little circuit.Phreerunner21/09/2016
A nice easy walk from Wycoller, following an ATV track to Little Saucer Stones, and then an easy path to the top. Sealskinz not worn or needed. Back via Turnhole Clough. Good tea and cake in the cafe.Gill30/08/2016
With Eire, Evan, Sail, Danu, Coel & Alfie.Dangerous Dave06/08/2016
From CP above Widdop reservoir. Good path from end of made track leads to summit. Near top take left steeper fork which leads to stile over fence.mart079711/06/2016
With K in fantastic weather. Parking difficult at 914 338 but possible. Obvious path from track end to summit. Water in stream tasted of Pritt Stick - very strange.Ashley02/05/2016
