With MS, from campsite in Muker, Pennine Way to Great Shunner Fell, over to Little Fell, Hugh Seat and High Seat with return following River Swale back to Muker.robertgn15/09/2018
Early start from a bivvy on Little Fell to beat the forecast heat. Thoroughly enjoyed the walking, helped by the gorgeous weather and relatively dry bogs. As much as I revelled in the expansive views and airy situation, Wild Boar Fell tugged at my heart up here. Returned to Archy Styrigg and descended Hell Gill with a long road slog back to Garsdale station, notwithstanding a pint in the lovely Moorcock Inn.Jake99426/07/2018
With Bryher from Outhgill. Fun climb straight up through steep edge. After that walked all the tops to Sails and back by the High Road and riverside path.jenx23/06/2018

From Outhgill, with Roger Templeman. Searching for old benchmarks on a direct route up - steep on Mallerstang Edge. Lovely ridge walk S to Sails before coming back to the road.jonglew06/10/2017
With K; RM waited at car. Great view from Cross Fell to Pen-Y-Ghent. Followed faint track/ATV wheelmarks from junction of road and bridleway to N all the way to summit. Careless bank has some interesting evidence of quarrying and a slight zigzag track up it from the old works. Terrain between careless bank and summit denuded of peat.Ashley13/08/2017

Early start 8am from pt 318m on Tommy Road. Climb alongside Gale Sike easy if not rough and fairly steep along the hush. Once above High Brae and in the mist was very glad to have the satellites guiding me. Rather featureless when you can see only 30 metres. Where the summit cairn? What is there is pitiful. Continued to Archy..stig_nest08/10/2016
Bare ground, gorgeous view, however was very windy so kept away from the edges. Part of northern dales horse shoe.Tom D11/09/2016
10 Mile walk from parking space at the Thrang, followed Pennine Bridleway past the sculpture and along to Hell Gill Beck, followed tracks up and across boggy land to Ure Head (Sails) cairn, then up onto Lunds Fell, and across boggy col up to Hugh Seat (the last mountain in the Dales we needed), then along to Gregory Chapel and High Seat we had previously walked in 2011, then descended steeply west down edge at Sloe Brae Gill to Outhgill and back along river to the Thrang. Perfect walking weather, high cloud and a breeze.DanTrig27/08/2016

From Outhgill on B6259. Very clear views and dry underfoot, the flora and fauna indicating that the ground is usually soggy.JohnStoneham13/07/2013
Well 15 years on, but from the South! Sails/Little Fell from Aisgill Moor Cotts. Along 'ridge' on grass track, damp in places but good running line (devious route but neat line, hard in mist). Not a ridge for the wet/windy days you get round here! To Hugh Seat/Styrig then simple jog up to summit and another bolt/ring! But not main cairn!! Muggy day, misty views - warm. Steep down through crags to Outhgill, Jew stone and left car.nordicstar19/06/2013
