Walked with daughter Rosey from Clapham to Gaping Gill and then to this hill. Strong wind and sharp rain made the Limestone Pavement a bit tricky.IanHHill24/12/2017
A 2nd visit. With L and Martha the spaniel from Austwick on a 4 hour circuit through a limestone pavement wonderland around Crumuckdale. A lovely warm sunny morning. Lazed at the summit cairn having a bite until Martha's uncharacteristic barking hinted it was time to be moving again.Chris Pearson27/10/2017

From Moughton and back to Crummack Lane.Wycombe Wanderer12/07/2017
Parked alongside the final gate on the dead-end road north from Austwick (alt 231m). Room for 2 cars. Walked along to the open access field and headed diagonally across towards the summit. Confronted with a difficult wall atop a scar so had to follow this north until it became a fence and thereby climbable. Pehaps not the best way. However the said wall easily leads down to Crummack.moorsman18/02/2017
As Jim Bloomer. Visited the Norber Erratics at last after 60 years. When I was a little lad, my bedtime reading was Kendall & Wroot's Geology of Yorkshire. I vowed to visit the erratics one day. Never thought it would take me so long.ngthack13/07/2016
After Park Fell, Simon Fell & Ingleborough from layby north of Selside. Continued to Moughton, downhill over convenient steps in wall by shelter at SD766705. Nice walled in paths/tracks across valley to steep ascent to Moughton.mart079724/04/2016

From the road end N of Austwick with Moughton. Stayed on the high ground in a 3.5 hour horseshoe. Past the famous Norber erratics. World class limestone and a world class classic geological site . Not much like it outside o' Yorkshire. Contiguous gem.jimbloomer19/09/2015
Parked beside St James' Church then headed up Thwaite Lane which passes through two short tunnels that the owner of Ingleborough Hall had built about 150 years ago for servants and privacy. Left at the next lane junction to head north until a gate beside some pens where a route upwards to Thaite Scars is obvious with on wall crossing. Then pick your cairn on a flattish but undulatiing limestone grassland upland.Dugswell204/09/2015

Quick up and down. Last 1000ft hill in this area.peebs05/06/2014
From Clapham through tunnels behind St James' Church and up bridleway. Along lane until convenient gate at sheep pens allows access to hill. Many cairns on flattish top, largest one has it for me.Aye Jimmy30/03/2014

fine limest hill (rainstorm); fine E frontage. from Wharfe b/w, direct ascent from gate @ 771707, scramble up low crag RHW05/10/2003
I,ve been over 'Norber' 4 or 5 times. This was the first, I think. In improving weather it says in my log and a 1720 hrs start- that is, I was coming off Ingleborough and fancied a hill with views. The erratic boulders are famous.pwheeler29/05/1974
