From Landrigg wind farm access track.Peterb01/06/2019
Nice parking at N 54° 19.836 W 002° 38.091 then over main road and up footpath through undulating sheepy fields before diverting off to this top and then visiting the old one and a few other high points.Father Ted15/04/2019
Hutton Roof Crags, Lambrigg Fell, Greyrigg Forest, Scout Scar(both tops and trig) and Cunswick Scar. Parked in quarry access road on Sunday lunchtime. Across road, through fields, followed wall and then up to summit.Longwojo10/02/2019
Parked on lay-by after junction 37 on M6,then road walk up to bridleway oppersite quarry. Then spent an hour taking in all topsrobert12/11/2018
With LunaBigNick05/11/2018
After Grayrigg Forest, drove to A684, parked by Quarry entrance. Used BP and access land. Weather clearing and a few decent views. Attractive top.IanHHill02/08/2018
From quarry entrance to South. Visited new and old GRs for Marilyn. 3 wall crossings.NormanW06/06/2018
From SD586929. Having passed by on so many occasions it was about time to make a visit.summitsup27/04/2018
Via bridleway from north. I was going to take mountain bike but the path was poor so walked insteadtrimarc226/04/2018
With K via wind turbines. Parked at start of bridleway where there is space for one car between gates.Ashley26/03/2018
Parking on wide grass verge SW side quarry entrance. RoW initially then followed wall to grassy top. Nipped over to the old GR for completeness. With Steve Smith.jonglew30/01/2018
Parked on quarry road, followed footpath beyond old summit in error. Back to old summit then the new and finally back along the footpath.Photos here https://www.flickr.com/photos/iwcharters/albums/72157691210874224IWC07/01/2018
SR, in rain.Frank13/10/2017
From windfarm entrance where it says dont park. Loads of room though. Numerous lumpy tops but the highest is fairly obvious. Views spoilt in my opinion by the turbines..stig_nest15/09/2017
No. 4 of seven M6 Marilyns. Parked in the quarry road, no-one about. Off piste from the bridleway gate, rough pasture and boggy bits, to the wall. Climbed over at the wall junction, fairly easy but not as low as some imply. No idea why the summit is not access land, it's just as rough as the wind farm land, with the extra bonus of lots of heather. Looks like moorland to me. Nice views from the top, but otherwise not the most exciting hill in the world.Gill26/08/2017
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
2 of 3: From Roan Edge Quarry. With Tim.ChrisR21/04/2017
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.Topographer5705/04/2017
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
Sunny start...sleat finish... Herd of sheep showed great interest in following me to summit. Howgill fells great viewN.Morters02/03/2016

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

Regrettably the best top to the north was 2 m lower than the grassy lump according to my GPS. Pleasant grassy walk in the sun.signyred17/02/2008

Late afternoon ascent after orienteering event. A bit shocked by the impact of the wind turbines, as they were still fairly unusual on the hills at this time.JohnW10/04/2004
From road, past wind turbines. On way north to do KIMM with M.PeterD24/10/2003
I had previously visited hill 2666, as well as the SW top which is not in the database, at a time when I thought 2666 was the Marilyn summit. This visit was made to ensure the validity of my Marilyn claim.David Purchase03/04/2003
