Up to Rogan’s Seat from Gunnerside, across to the nearby trig point and then around to Pinhope Seat.Eggletina08/08/2019
With Val. Hot weather. Parked on minor road west of Gunnerside. Followed track from minor road almost all the way to the summit Path leads to cairn from track. Returned same route.mike.hoult24/07/2019
Outstanding route from Muker through the meadows, along Swaledale and up Swinner Gill before heading along shooting tracks to close to the summit then across to Water Crag a la Nuttalls but went back down the same way. Just over 4 hours round trip.clivevilla11/09/2018

Same as Gerry B. (except went S when he went N!!) On me own.CJM15/05/2018
Pretty much as per Nuttall's 11.3, though messed up by crossing Gunnerside Gill too early which added unnecessary effort onto an already long day.milimana18/04/2018
Keld - Pennine Way to Catrake Force - West Wood - Crackpot Hall (Ruin) - Swinner Gill Lead Mines (Ruins)- rose onto moor along East Grain (recently repaired path thanks) - then Coast to Coast path - taking the buff coloured track just past the C to C double headed sign heading for summit past the High Man Stone - Rogan Seat summit- then overshot to follow fence (Snowy drifts /low cloud) to bag trig on Water Crag. Retraced our snowy footprints back to the track and returned whence we came.briandavies18/02/2018
From Tan Hill pub...used track to the end near ruin. Then over moorland to summit. Fence runs most of the way, going better than expected.N.Morters17/08/2017

Rogan's Seat and Water Crag. More or less followed route 11.3 from the Nuttall's book with the exception of going up to Crackpot hall (which still has a pan on the cooker even though it was abandoned in 1953) and also, on the way down I didn't notice the instructions to keep below “Lord Peel's shooting cabin” but I found another path that took me down to Blakethwaite Lead Mines and crossed the river there. Grouse shooting was going on at Swinner Gill and there were dead grouse on the track, one of which was not as dead as the others which I didn't like. Had lunch in the shooting hut at GR NY 922024 (thanks for leaving it unlocked, Lord Peel's cabin was locked). Had just become dark when I eventually got back to Muker.tsharp10/01/2017

Solo, from Keld.amswanston15/07/2016
Dalesrail walk starting in Muker, up via Swinner Gill. After this, pretty featureless on top, over to Water Crag trig point then back via Gunnerside Gill and lead-mining remnants. Hot and hazy, some heather-hacking to be done. Good views from Water Crag down to A66, and over to Mallerstang Edge. The way up and down better than the destination.JOHNS29/05/2016
Parked in Keld, good car park. What a drag from Kisdon, this peak I would not wish on an enemy. Small cairn on top of mound with a white tube from it. Uninspiring peak. Glad I did it whilst it was dry. Company: Soloiandesbottes28/05/2016
#583 From the CP in Keld, up through the old mines and onto the tracks across the moor.tim74724/05/2016
Keld > Swinner Gill > Rogan's Seat > Water Crag and returned the same route. 9.8 miles in 3 hours 50 minutes.Alan Caine14/05/2016
From Muker following the Nuttall's route.rhalstead01/05/2016
From Keld via Swinner Gill and then up shooting track. Horizontal wind and rain. Took shelter in shooting hit for lunch then on to Water Crag and Tan Hill before returning to Keld via Pennine Way and then road.ruthatlast20/02/2016
Not worth climbing again. Walked from the north over undulating ground by the fenceline.Tom D10/02/2016

Climbed up from Gunnerside.CMR11426/05/2015
From Keld, up Swinner Gill, past the lead mines, which is really nice. The track up to the top is not pretty, but makes it an unusually easy walk.Gill09/05/2015
Parked at Gunnerside, followed lanes up to Rogans Seat Summit, followed fence over rough terrain to Water Crag then followed tracks and paths across to Great Pinseat back down to Gunnerside via lanes across the moors, raining for most of the walk eventhough clouds were well above summits, 13.5 miles. Rogans Seat has got to be one of the mosty easiest mountains to climb ever.DanTrig02/05/2015
from Keld, a lovely walk in followed by a dreary trudge along estate tracks - cairn obvious enough - unlikely to revisit.stig_nest11/04/2015
An easy outing from Keld. Route and write-up at:
Gravel track.tomd431/07/2014
Walked on my own from Keld. Overcast but stayed dry. Good long distance views but hazy. This is a great walk with lots of contrasting scenery. Wouldn't risk 'The Pathless Moor' or 'meandering though peat hags' in bad weather. Rest of the walk has good paths though some are very narrow.flockwatcher03/07/2014

A fantastic walk from Keld past waterfalls and an old lead mine with superb views of Swaledale. Geoff 2E0NON & I completed an HF activation.G4OOE02/04/2014
Easy ascent from Gunnerside, mostly up the grouse shooting road which leads almost to the summit.signyred05/03/2014
From the Tan Hill Inn on a blustery day. Nobody about. As far as bleakness and big Pennine skies go, this excels. Magnificent sense of remoteness.Jake99422/02/2014
From Muker via Swinner Gill and quarry track, returned following quarry track down Gunnerside Gillwebmaster07/02/2014
Spectacular navigational cock-up by WW made this a much longer walk than intended. Swinner Gill was impressive. Fell and grazed my hands running down from the summit. Sheltered in the chapel at Keld while Jez ran back to Thwaite to pick up the car.Simba30/10/2013
