Ascended by the footpath to the east, which was very wet. The flat summit though grassy was saturated, which was not easy for the sheep or the farmer.JohnW15/03/2020
Parked on wide road to east of hill. Over fp stile and then straight up steep pasture to north of gorse and directly to several tops, some man made. Indeterminate.Campbell Singer13/01/2020

From Grizedale Bridge. First on to Holme Wood Hill, then Nicky Nook. Watched a starling murmuration hereWayne Mac14/02/2019
Final hill of the day on circuit from Grizedale Bridge. By the aerials with good view eastwards to Bleasdale Moors. Interlocking spurs aplenty - the old geography lessons not entirely in vain!JOHNS04/01/2019
From Grizedale Bridge on a dull,overcast afternoon-first easy saunter up Holme Wood Hill,then on to Barnacre Moor along good track beginning at side of reservoir.With Oscar.catman04/01/2019

Up track from road, lots of man made mounds, highest natural point seems to be on S side of compoundBramley06/04/2018
With Jo, circular walk from Grizedale Bridge. Road and track via Calder Side, both tops, then continuing on tracks/paths past Burns Farm to Grize Dale and then permissive path through Holme Wood. Weather; generally sunny with cool breeze, good visibility.amblerbob29/01/2018
Parked at Calder Side and walked uo FP to masts. Walked round the compound. HP seemed to be on S side (except for the man-made mounds to the East). Wet underfoot as expected. Good views from the top area.bevandy11422/01/2018

From reservoir to NERobertP05/02/2017
From Grizedale Bridge CP. Solo. The natural highest point would seem to be on one of the flat topped areas just north of the mast enclosures. However, there currently two large piles of soil between the enclosures. The summit is the top of these!ADT26/11/2016
From E.jimbloomer22/09/2016
Parked on surprisingly quiet lane near Bank Farm. Good weather. Good views - especially liked the carpet of trees to the south. Pondered why farmers obliterate footpath signs and why so many wind turbines don't turn in a stiff breeze.Wycombe Wanderer17/07/2016
From parking spot opposite entrance to Grizedale Lea reservoir. Good track up to masts.mart079729/01/2016
With Evan, Sail, Danu, Coel & Alfie.Dangerous Dave24/01/2016
Easily bagged on a good path from roadside parking near the entrance to Grizedale Lea Reservoir. Summit was somewhere around the masts. I did have an interesting time with some very nosey cows not far from the top.Neil Haslewood15/10/2015
From near Calder side. Summit seems to be near masts & not ref. given. First hill on Nicky Nook triangle.ngthack19/07/2015
Parked on grass verge just north of Calder Side at SD 53553 48277. Good track/PROW.David Gradwell24/04/2015
From NNE. 'F.W.B.' on valve cover at summit presumably Fylde Water Board; also tunnel shaft cover in field near parking spot badged 'F.W.B. 1922'RHW21/03/2015
Approached as previous loggers. Summit dominated by masts. Flat area to north on banking with concrete slabs, or outside gates on south side are both contenders for high point. Various other mounds man-made?Aye Jimmy07/09/2014
Parked at Calder Side and used the good footpath. The highest point appears to be at 53156 47508. No access issues.JohnStoneham24/08/2014
