Parked nr Po House and w Jenx used the FP to gain higher ground - wandered around on the summit area w old and new top plus another should top get moved in futurenordicstar14/02/2017
From SW, Po Hse, revisit for relocated SubMarilyn summit W side of wall.RHW04/12/2016
Track and then path from Po House, one open gate, no barbed wire and no wall to climb to reach the highest point.alda01/11/2016
Couple of bits of 'Access Land' from track to NE of summit but you still have to trespass. You would think the Millom NEDS would beat a path to their local top. I don't know, you just can't get a quality NED like we used to be back in '42. Put me down for wandering about all the various tops.Eddie19/04/2014
Not a summit to try for when you realise that you have left the map in the car! Had to climb all the visible, mist shrouded hills just to make sure. Plenty of roadside parking just above Po House. Some walls to climb on the way.moorsman22/04/2013
Walked up the public footpath which just stops and then a quick trespass to three tops.Top could be any of these. Watch out for the cows.DARRENG22/09/2012
Parked by Kirksanton Village Hall and used FP to gain access,climbed a few large walls and visited various knolls in the fog on a mild dry afternoon. Local farmer is friendly as I watch him feed his cattle and Blue Faced Leicester tups.Dugswell220/11/2011
From road S of Bankside, by pig farm. Steeply through trees onto upper hill. Some bracken and gorse higher up, but summit area clear. Summit: perm any one from three or four possibles.Aye Jimmy23/08/2011
From road to SE about a kilometer away. Very easy - stroll. Pleasant.destaylor01/06/2011
Very hard work from NE (Bankside). Lots of big walls and barbed wire. Summit location could be any of three or four hillocks.chriswatson22/02/2011
