small grass knoll in limestone; two similar height, differentiated only by Abney. Muggy, hazy, extensive views across wild sheep pasture with limestone outcrops.Denise 26/06/2020
I thought the limestone knoll at SD83336,63648 was just the higher than the 'spot height summit' by abney - both ways, but not a lot in it. For those continuing S there's a convenient new gate just S of the 'spot height summit'.RichardM26/06/2020

2/6 Warrendale Knotts, High Hill, Rye Loaf Hill, Kirkby Fell, Grizedales and Black Hill. All accessed from Settle using the Pennine Bridleway Loop to gain access to each hill. A nice round.nickywood128/12/2019
From High Hill Lane. Warrendale Knotts first, then a walk along Stockdale Lane.jonglew23/04/2019
With Jo, from Settle. Ascended by road to south of hill then steeply up track to summit area. Descended over Sugar Loaf Hill and by the Malham to Settle public footpath. Weather; sunny, cool breeze, good visibility.amblerbob07/10/2018
After a lay of of drizzle and looking bit brighter, as soon as I got on hillside wisps of Scotch mist n drizzle ate lashed into my face. Inappropriate leg wear of nabs were soon soakedvegibagger18/09/2018

1st of 6 tumps from Settle to Malham YHA, climbing up through Upper Settle then using cycle route 68, veering off at SD82567 63424, heading North then NE then SE to reduce the gradient before heading directly to the summit. Fantastic scenery, especially to the North with the Attermire Scars; great to be back in this part of the world since 2008 with my daughter (Settle and Malham). Descent SE to pick up Pennine Bridleway at Stockdale lane then over the knoll of Low Halsteads to reach open access land, heading for Rye Loaf Hill.Dazingdale24/03/2018

It appears that I identified the correct summit .... phew! Parking immediately beyond the stock pens at the start of Stockdale Lane (alt 297m). Down the lane for a short distance to a stile into the field. Follow the path all the way up to the col where a track leads to the summit. Really is not worth trying to short cut it as there is a nasty wall to climb on the direct line.4.5km return to include Warrendale Knotts. 80 minutesmoorsman18/02/2017
High Hill -> Warrendale Knotts -> Grizedales -> Kirkby Fell -> Rye Loaf Hill, parking at roadside 837629. Cold and foggy, but at least the bogs were partly frozen over at the top! Planned to park up by Stockdale farm as others and do it as 2 shorter walks - note that there are private road/no vehicles signs at the start of Stockdale Lane. It's a very good parking spot up there for anyone braver than me though :)the_adam21/01/2017
As an alternative, after trying to do Parson's Pulpit & the High Marks. Snow too deep.ngthack20/11/2016

From Langcliffe - good car park.
