4/5M parked near stang house atv track then spungy ground to the top.robertphillips22/10/2017
From top of the pass where theres plenty of parking. A drive up from Stafford for a few Northern Marilyns and as the forecast was wet I elected to come here first - before the rains. The going underfoot not that bad but visibility being good no doubt helped too. Summit is barely higher than the trigpoint. A huge sky -one can only imagine what it's like to be up here on a clear starry night.stig_nest12/09/2017
With K; RM turned back after wetting ankle support in a bog. From high point on road. Terrain not terrible but a few drains/dykes to negotiate.Ashley12/08/2017
Walked up obvious keepers' landrover track on E side of Hurr Gill from Stang House. From near head of the gill- many grouse butts there- followed less defined tracks to featureless summit area so went to trig point and walked SW. I agree- the high point is much more than 200 m away. Worth visiting the trig first for orientation and better views. Back to area with lots of butts then back down the good track. E wind, sunny and dry (very dry ground), further E looked very grey.pwheeler09/05/2017
Up & down east bank of Hurr Gill.ngthack25/10/2016
Parked just above Stang House. Tracks and paths up east side of Hurr Gill stream to grouse butts makes for easy walking. Came back down west side. BIG mistake. Best to return down east side. Nice walk in spite of heavy drizzle and 50m visibility.Minto12/10/2016
From the high point on the Stang road. Pretty wet underfoot.jenx29/09/2016
A repeat with Jenx, from road highpoint. Some tracks now at start but these soon give out to the rough furze and boggy ground. Visited the 'new' top and the trig again. Good views to Northnordicstar29/09/2016

From County Boundary road crossing. It had to be done, but ........summitsup15/08/2016

Parked on county boundary straight walk not too boggy across the grouse moor & peat bogsphilhythe01/07/2016
From Stang road parked between border signs. Headed over easy moor to Trig point first before a wander to something higher 500m along the flat summit. Sunny evening. Returned the same way.N.Morters20/06/2016
From county boundary out and back via trig point.SS24/04/2016
#575 From the county boundary, tamperer's top located with GPS, Trig on the way back.tim74719/04/2016

2mFM radio activation. NP-024.Petem0hqo31/01/2016
From the CP at the county border. Surprised that so many people have given this a decent writeup - I found it a really boring slog - not even much ascent to work up a sweat.Crib Goch03/10/2015
Made a bee-line for the top from the car park at the county boundary, returned via the trig point. Pleased to meet fellow bagger Richard at the car park - and discovered we had a mutual friend in assynt_bobmartin_hall28/09/2015
Parked a little above Stang House and followed tracks up the east side of Hurr Gill to a series of grouse butts, then a short walk to the Trig Point, and then across the plateau to the summit. Thankfully very dry!Fisky Boy03/07/2015

Scampered up this after 9 Standards Rigg. Crossing the moor from County boundary was pretty boggy, but it's a very atmospheric summit plateau. Loads of moorland birds. Finding the highest point is fun!Gill07/05/2015
From the layby which sits on the county boundary to the SE. Route and write-up at:
Parked on road to East of Hoove and did an out and back to tag the top. Third try and first successful one because of the recent survey that was done there.MikeM06/03/2015

from Bowes-Gilmonby-Citron Seat-Cleasby Hill-Hoove-Elsey Crag-past Forest plantation & return. overcast,dry, warm.joseph mitchell28/09/2014
Better than a service station on the A66! A short walk from the nearby road over grassy moorland. The only point of interest is that it is free of wire fences but has several grouse butts. The old drainage ditches appear to have been blocked up forming numerous small ponds.mindlessflogger04/09/2014
From the Stang in good weather.bolton21/05/2014
Parking area at Stang Top (019 068) Made way across trackless moor to unmarked summit about 500m SW of trig point. A GPS is useful. (PM CM)gerrybowes21/05/2014
Parked at Stang and arrived at trig without too much pain. Walked 200m to SW and still the land looked higher further on. My best guess was NZ 00337 07044 where I got a reading 1metre higher than elsewhere.signyred05/03/2014
On DoBIH survey. Highest point found to be at the South end of plateau 500m from the trig pillar.webmaster06/02/2014

Walked from car parking area at Stang side along the easterly edge of Hurr Gill before heading across to the trig point and then onto summit. Cloudy morning but great views,walked with Graham and Ruben.karencooke30/10/2013
bit of a slog across the moor.Adrian06/10/2013
From Stang Side. Ascended the western bank of Hurr Gill, and descended the east bank. Rough grass tracks most of the way.davidpettit8427/07/2013
From Stang Top. Wet and icy underfoot.Sprog15/12/2012
A straightforward, but pathless, walk from Stang Topmoorsman17/10/2012
From parking area on Stang road went up west side of defile - mistake. Came down eastern edge, much better. SOTA Geocache whatever one of them is - thought someone had left something unmentionable in a bait box!dmacbrew09/09/2012
On our way to Barnard's Castle from Arkgartendale - the County Durham pass provided an opportunity to nip up to this top. Wet and trackless it proved an interesting amble - not too much in the way of views.chinnock17/02/2012
nice climb up, nice snowy day !andying29/01/2012
With Dad and Becca as circuit from north. Parked on Stang Road. Weather average, but we had views from the summit. Some snow and frozen bog.AGWilliamson02/01/2012
Parked at 012061 (9:25). Track across stream and through gate. V faint path (missed on way up) leads up from here above valley scarp to fence corner. Trackless from there but easy. Top approx 300m SSW of trig pt but v flat. Gloomy. Finish 10:45dbb02/09/2011
