8/8 Powter How from car park, then walked along to Ladies Table via woodland, picked route up to Lothwaite, Rivings and Sale Fell (Revisit) then across to Ling Fell (revisit) and dropped onto Burthwaite Heights. Then contoured round hills to regain access to woodland. After cheeky pint at Pheasant a quick nip up Castle How completed a busy day.nickywood131/07/2020
There is a layby directly S of the summit on the road with space for several cars. Headed up directly through passable woodland - 5 minute round trip!Mark Jackson27/07/2020

Parked in little car park almost under A66 as suggested. Nice little path leads up to summit and continues down the other side. Recompletion of every hill in Section 34A.Lionel Bidwell26/05/2020
