With Anthony Falconberg. Trig pillar number S4265vegibagger22/05/2020
Walked to hill from Sunderland rail station. Super little hill - good summit views which include the distant Cheviot, Penshaw Hill, the sea, etc. A nice little limestone crag provides some play. My third visit.ger30/10/2019
Parked in residential street to west and walked to this local nature reserve in cold gusty winds to rocky limestone outcrop , accessed by easy scramble. Trig on top. Superb views in dramatic evening light of coast, urban Sunderland and impressive Penshaw monument. Also visited Maiden paps, lower.Denise 16/03/2019

Did this one and the other prominent hill. Take some decent footwear - the direct scramble (and alternative route back down) is short but up slippery rocks, many of them polished. Felt much more precarious than it should have, but then I do need new boots...the_adam25/10/2016
Surprisingly good top. Followed bridleway off Tunstall Road.Bramley25/08/2016
Nice hill.arranc11/03/2016
