Hutton Roof Crags & Farelton Fell from road HP between hills. These are a must for lovers of limestone. There are a number of unmapped tracks (through scrub) on Hutton.ger05/05/2019

Another 'interesting' visit to Hutton Roof. This time tackled it from fell road to north, visiting the 'new' high point cunningly detected by the Abney man. Those 60cm make all the difference! This is a great fell to get lost on.citygent22/11/2018
Climbed from lay-by on A65 just before M6 via field paths, very quiet country lanes, bridleways cross minor road then onto Hutton roof moor where a meandering path climbs up through stunted shrubs.When limestone crags show through push right onto limestone pavement by large cairn where thin path goes to summitrobert15/10/2018
Solo. On the way home fter a few days n Keswick. Parked in Quarry car park to the south. Followed path that starts to the left of the picnic tables and continues to the TP. Another 100m approx. to the highest point. Good weather.mike.hoult15/09/2018
After Lambrigg Fell, drove down M6 and parked at picnic site in wood to S of hill. Beautiful woodland with native trees and Limestone Pavement. Picked first Blackberries of this year.IanHHill02/08/2018
Walked up straight after work (Dalton Hall Business Centre at SD538761 - marked as 'Home Farm'). Very hot and got harassed by flying ants almost constantly. Got a bit disorientated in the woods but eventually found the wide track to the top. Views good but a little hazy. N.B. - no access via Crag House.James McKnight26/07/2018

with Andy his idea to fight through birches lolcolinfielding03/05/2018
From North followed a good path up to the ridge and then fought our way thru birches. If we had carried on another 200yds a path would have taken us to the top. With Colin.bevandy11403/05/2018

En route Wilms-Edinb. From road between two halves of hill. Fine weather. Rough going. Rounsfell30/09/2017
No. 3 of seven M6 Marilyns. From the quarry car park. Through the gate, up the clear path, cross another path and follow a nice path along a shallow valley bounded by low limestone crags. Left along the broad track in dark woodland, then follow your nose upwards. Forgot my compass, but it was pretty obvious where the top is. Great views.Gill26/08/2017
From quarry car park. A straightforward lovely ascent. Quite the view from the trig pillar . Gotta love this limestone pavement stuff too..stig_nest13/08/2017
