From Keld, farm track to 89385 00256 then head for gate which means no walls to climb. Some pathless heather on the way to the summit.NormanW26/08/2019

From Muker. Final N Yorks hill. All Yorkshire now completed. Also Ouse (York) catchment completed. Then on to How Hill for a pre-emptive strike.ngthack06/01/2019
From Muker taking ROW to Keld to high point then cross country (wall to cross out and in - take care as its in use). Came back closer to wall. Just two English Marilyns to go now.SS22/12/2018

From Muker on bridleway, over shoulder and down into a dip to a gate from where I followed a wall over rough ground to the top. No need to climb walls. Lovely little hill and good viewpoint.trimarc221/03/2018
Lots of heather bashing and a couple of walls to climb.Ianto&Sue01/01/2018
I went up from the bridleway to the south and down to the RoW to the NNW. There was a substantial wall on each way. I was very careful climbing them, as one wall, at least, looked on the point of collapse.Alan Moore26/10/2017
5/5 M From track NW up to 2nd ruin then up the side of the wall 1 gate and 1 wall to cross.robertphillips22/10/2017
From Thwaite via Pennine Way, Bridle Track and along ridge from S.IanHHill16/10/2017
From Keld campsite. Marvelous waterfalls.. Took the old bridleway to house which looks lived in before crossing heathery ground to top. Cairn is not at highest point. Descent in a fairly direct back to Keld direction means numerous walls to be acaledstig_nest15/09/2017
With K and RM. Following bridleway from NW and then E side of wall. Layby to park 2/3 cars at start of bridleway. Very pleasant.Ashley13/08/2017

Drove to Keld after going up Hoove, stopping for coffee and enormous portion of Victoria Sponge cake in Gunnerside. A familiar area, having walked on all the paths between Keld and Muker. Open access and RHB made this my first visit to Kisdon summit though- I traversed from N to S climbing one awkward wall (on N side) by its V-turn. The wall to the S side had a break where it was only half height. An impressive cairn very near by gives a good foreground for photos. Satisfying, though I think a walk along the bw on the W side and ascent and descent on the S side would be nicer. Some thick heather and tussocks, though little tracks and trods could be found much of the way on the hill. Used the glorious path high on the E side to return the Keld- for this hill, it's the paths round it that give the best walking. Sunny, cold in shade.pwheeler09/05/2017

Easy walk from the layby at the start of the track to just beyond the farm-house and then made a bee-line for the top.martin_hall05/03/2017
