From Stang House. A gamekeeper in an all terrain vehicle watched me all the way back from the top and kept about 250 yards from me. He zoomed off as soon as I was back on the roadtrimarc222/03/2018
4/5M parked near stang house atv track then soft 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 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

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:

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 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

First of 2 marilyns today. No Obvious path.Dugswell213/10/2002
Parked at Langthwaite. Walked via paths along the west ridge of Booze Moore. After crossing minor road weather began to deteriorate with snow falling heavily and visibility closing in. By using compass bearings found trig with viewing down to 15ft. Then went over spot height travelling SW in white out over top.garyhoney31/12/2000

Met L's parents and her brother for first time at a cottage at Arkengarthdale (a great name) Led them all on a walk up Hoove from south west over rough moorland in mist and rain (fotunately crossing true unmarked summit and then 500m later trig). Taught them how to use a compass. Derrick loved it -followed the needle religously. Back down empty moorland road.Chris Pearson15/05/1994
From the car park at Stang side we made a bee line to the trig point in the trackless hill top. It was tough tussocky grass - but the top & trig were reached.ChinnockCblank
