From the road lay-by, across the fields and up the track. Also visited the other top, just in case! Good views south.Play2End15/06/2017
From south, parked in quarry road, just beyond entrance. Take old right of way, easy walking. Windy, overcast, dry, warm and good views, both tops, in fact all the nearby bumps - in case.iangalbraith12/06/2017
Not the expected pushover. No parking at wind farm entrance, and a high wall defends summit from south top. Probably best to stay on track till end of wind farm, where the wall is lower.Viewfinder05/04/2017
Parked on quarry road in layby opposite the bridleway to Summerhouse Hill. Back to & across A684 then followed bridleway then wind farm track. Took in both summits which required a bit of easy wall hopping & then returned via bridleway. On own.MorecambeMonkey04/03/2017
5th of six Marilyns around Kendal with AW. What a day! Easy walk from wind farm gate where there is room for a car or two. Go directly underneath Nmost turbine then wall is moderately easy to climb. How anyone thought the other top was higher is beyond me!Mark Jackson22/12/2016
With MJ. See his description.AGWilliamson22/12/2016
From wind farm gate out almost to wall on track then followed close to crest where large cross stone provided easy clamber over. Returned a little more direct.SS27/11/2016
Parked just past quarry gates then up through the wind farm - the northern-most turbine even has a name-plate, 'Henry'! Then up by the wall and over by wall corner to top. Crossed another wall by the tiny tarn to access the old top, then back down the bridleway. Couldn't find a parking spot to access from the north.milimana08/10/2016
From quarry to south.ijpowell07/10/2016
Went from near quarry and used Bridleway and wind farm track.jenx28/09/2016
Repeat this time from south through wind turbines, parked near quarry entrance over road. Used bridleway then to No.1 wind turbine, over small wall and direct to top. GPS to confirm top location in mist and rain.nordicstar28/09/2016
From quarry entrance - both topsCrib Goch27/08/2016
After a fairly long walk in Eastern Fells stopped off to collect this Marilyn. Turbines make a lot of noise, sheep everywhere and a discussion with local about the turbines. Not the best marilyn however view of Howgills made up for it. Company: Soloiandesbottes30/07/2016
Start layby on the A684 (between the M6 & Qarry). Opposite Quarry Entrance we took the bridleway above the wind farm the cut across the access land to the summit. Sun still with us a great evening walk. Picked up the trig on the summit of Green bank opposite (above the quarry) before returning to the car.briandavies30/07/2016

A684 Quarry Road -> Lambrigg -> Lambrigg old top -> A684 Quarry Roadbriandiggle27/12/2013
From the road south of the top. Followed ROW with a short pleasant walk to the highest point. Good views from the top and we met a local with dog who told us he had never met any one up here.mindlessflogger29/03/2013
Up from bridle way from the south (some space to pull off the main road onto the verge). Follow bridle way until you meet the wall then follow wall up to the summit, hop over the wall beyond to get the next one. With Neil and Bev in brilliant snow.simon and co24/01/2013
Parked quarry access road.tim74723/11/2012
Climbed via the old top in thick mist while family went shopping in Kendal. Had a good potter about over a few bumps using a compass bearing from the small tarn to the NW - makes a good reference point.Jake99424/07/2012
With my Dad, parked at entrance to Roan Edge quarry on a Sunday morning so no worries about quarry trafficAlisonFox66 22/07/2012
A 35 min run (return) from the Sedbergh- Kendal road summit- which is as good a viewpoint. I think this was enough of this hill for me. Wet undefoot, ok weather.pwheeler01/07/2012
Bagged along with the cache. Parked at wind farm gate and walked over without any issues. Great views from the top on a clear day.Chingwakabungya02/06/2012

Parked at Roan Edge Quarry off the A684. Uninspiring summit but walking in a wind farm interesting and accessible. Operated for SOTA on VHF but only made four contacts.G4OBK (Phil)26/10/2011
Parked at SD 587929 in the road leading to Roan Edge Quarry. Visited with G4OBK (Phil) and Geoff Fielding after bagging Grayrigg Forest. Walked a circuit of the Wind Farm - no restrictions to access.judy55cat26/10/2011

Easily found the cairn on the original "summit". Covered the whole of the fell for the new summit to ensure that this Marilyn was "bagged"!Alan Caine13/09/2009
