11:30, 6 degrees, overcast, strong westerlies. Straightforward though predictably uninspiring walk from 977187; heather not as bad as feared. My kingdom for a tree. 1hr 10 mins.Wycombe Wanderer03/02/2020
Parked at White House detoured up Snoddle Hill then up Chelburn Moor to the reservoirs. Bad choice made when I headed directly for the Round Hills. Ground was very boggy and broken which made for tough going till I hit the ridge, a fence and an indistinct path. Returned down the ridge and jumped the White Holme Drain to access the easy reservoir fps. Don't follow my route up; I've climbed Munros that felt easier and safer than thrashing through waist deep vegetation surrounded by bog!John Eley18/08/2019

W to E from Stony Edge to White Holme Drain. A damp thrash through the heatherpeebs16/06/2019
From the White House PH. Followed moorsman route outward and returned via lighthazzles Res. Just under two hours. Mostly dry but very windyLongwojo04/04/2019

From the north parked on lee bank in mankinholes. Steep ascent. 4.2 miles. Windy and low cloud not much to see was planning a larger circular route but ended up returning same way 1h20mThe-Z-Man04/10/2018
From S.jimbloomer21/02/2018
From the White House on A58. Easy walking as far as the south end of Warland Reservoir after which it became heather and tussocky. Unspectacular top. 2 hours there and back.Campbell Singer16/02/2018
A nice easy route, as described by moorsman - second entry! Solo. Also visited the well-maintained whitewashed trig!Dangerous Dave06/12/2017

3rd hill of 5 today on a tough but rewarding route from Mytholmroyd station to Hebden Bridge via Crow Hill and Manshead End, descending on a fp Nw over Collin Hill then a vague track before heading Nw over rough ground to cross the Turvin Road and then descending near Saw Gill Hollow to cross Turvin Clough (had lunch overlooking the calming sound of running water) then continued to climb up White Holme Drain at SJ981208, climbing in and out to head directly for the Woolpack stones (great views to Warland Reservoir and some prominent rocky outcrops. Headed North to explore the summit before visiting the Trig point on the Little Holder Stones, I got a similar reading as some of the boulders are on higher ground than the trig anyway. I took a sweeping East to NE route avoiding the worst of the developing Cloughs before crosssing the Warland Drain, heading for Stoodley Pike.Dazingdale11/03/2017
Parked at end of access track on B6138. Walked up track & kept south of White Holm res crossing White Holm drain by a bridge near the boundary fence, Followed fence up to summit & the trig. Went straight down hill pathless to good track between Warland & Light Hazzles reservoirs.mart079701/01/2017
Tried again after my recent dismal failure. Large parking area alongside the White House pub, which, at 7:30 on a freezing cold day, was half full! (alt 1279 ft). Pennine way to the end of the Blackstone Edge reservoir. At the end there is a good path directly over to Whiteholme Reservoir via Byron Edge. Follow the concessionary path as far as the parish boundary where there is a concrete bridge giving access across the river. After crossing the bridge head diagonally across to the fence where there is a good developing path. This aims for the trig rather than the summit so do not cross any of the stiles. When the trig comes into view, between the third and fouth stile, cross the easy fence towards the summit. 5.6 miles return, 393 ft ascent, 2 and a half hours.moorsman05/11/2016
Vague/developing path near the fence which runs approximately along the line of a parish boundary with occasional boundary stonesmaknipe29/10/2016
No .... No .... No.... on no account approach this from the Withens Clough Reservoir. I did and failed miserably. Firstly, the concessionary path to the south of the reservoir is bounded by an uncrossable catchment drain without bridges. This means you have to rejoin the northern track at the west of the reservoir. Here you can cross it but there is no way of ascending the hill. Very deep tussocks growing out from waterlogged ground which eithers pulls you down knee deep or makes to take lengthy detours. Only a mile, but after half an hour I had only done 300 yards ... so I gave up, only to have to face it all going back. Take heed!moorsman22/10/2016

from The Summit pub with Snoddle Hilljoseph mitchell09/06/2015
With Jo, from adjacent cp to The White House pub: PW to White Holme Reservoir, followed track along its south bank, crossed White Holme Drain by bridge at SD 97636 20442, (shorter way to this point would be to follow track from parking area on B6138 at SD 97789 18714), then alongside fence to Blake Moor. Continued to the trig on Little Holder Stones, then over Stony Edge before crossing Warland Drain at SD 95491 21478 (steps either side at this point, but nothing in the middle), and returning along the PW. Weather; sunny, cold wind, good visibility.amblerbob18/04/2015
Parked on large car park adjacent to The White House pub by A58. Followed Pennine Way passed Blackstone Edge Reservoir then public footpath to end of Light Hazzles Reservoir where we made a direct ascent on fairly rough terrain but not wet due to dry spell. Visited trig then dropped down north over Holder Stones. We crossed Warland Drain via balancing on a sturdy fence to gain excellent path all the way to White Holme Reservoir. Good path over Byron Edge with a little detour to visit the summit of this English sub Four.David Gradwell12/07/2014
From White House up to trig then on to topBramley11/07/2014
Done solo from Crag Vale road. Walked around this hill with out actually going to the summit on many accasions over the last 40 years. Better than expected.Aimless Rambler14/01/2014
Parked near SD 96472 24393 then took bridleway NNE towards Edge End Moor, Lower Rough Head Farm, Stoodley Pike and finally on to Blake Moor to bag the trig point which is surrounded by reservoirs and catchment drain that can be tricky to cross twice to return to starting point.Dugswell206/08/2013
Sat out a heavy shower at White House car park then a longish jog along reservoir tracks -taking in sub-four summit of Byron Edge then round Light Hazzles reservoir on path before rough grass to trig then along past small grit outcrops to summit. Two lovely gritstone boulder sat on open mooorland -photogenic,Chris Pearson14/08/2011
Started from the White House to the S, along sides of reservoirs and Low Hazzle, before roughing it for the last section over heather.Aye Jimmy19/07/2009
I recall that this hill was very rough going but the rocky outcrops were great and have a bit of fun on them. Felt a long way from anywhere.Jake99424/04/2008
Walked from Windy Hill, onto Blackstone Edge along to Stoodley Pike and Blake Moor(Little Holder Stones)and back.DanTrig27/08/2005
