|From Embsay village on public footpath. Over barbed wire fence onto quarry site (Sunday, so no-one about) and easy walk up to summit. No cairn. Went over to see the limestone ridge on the lower western top. It's as good as others say... a very unexpected feature. Solo.||Dangerous Dave||10/11/2019|
|Via super little ridge to east of mast, very slightly reminiscent of the Aonach Eagach of Glencoe. The great crags of Haw Park ahead very slightly reminiscent of An Ruadh Stac.||Wycombe Wanderer||18/08/2019|

|Easy roadside parking in Embsay village. Signposted path starts through the pub car park and leads directly up to the building on the summit col. On reaching this navigate the BWF on the left and, after a few trees, the summit becomes visible. Much easier walk than expected.2.98Km return, 45 minutes.||moorsman||18/10/2018|

|Parked the car near Skipton FBM Aux 1 berntsen then walked back towards Embsay to take the footpath from the NW towards Haw Park. Keep to the lower path through the woods which then crosses the quarry road before the footpath goes up some steps then turns into field. Along quarry edge of field until wooden bit of fence topped with barbed wire allows access towards summit. Then on to bag Haw Park surface block before retreating back towards route of ascent.||Dugswell2||22/02/2018|
