With Val. Parked below Leck Fell House and walked short distance up track before turning steeply up to ascend Gragareth. Followed ridge north over Green Hill to Great Coum. Very wet and boggy in places. Returned to col south of Green Hill and descended over rough wet ground to end of track which was followed to the start. Weather fine. Summit cairn is the other side of a wall from the cairn that could easily be mistaken for the summit cairn.mike.hoult07/09/2019
Onto Crag HillJack Richards09/03/2019
From road end at 723823. The surfaced track stops after 2k and becomes a bog. Descending from the summit I managed to step up to my knees in a horrible bog which looked quite innocuous. This East side of the hill is quite wet in places.NormanW23/02/2019
From Leck House, good roadside parking 150m before end of the road. Mapped track NE continues to the ridge line. Picked up Green Hill first. From here on the the Crag Hill trig pillar; Gragareth on the return.jonglew05/02/2019

Parked on verge to east at start of ROW. Quick detour to High Pike then upto Green Hill & along ridge to summit. Followed wall down to ROw, but track from bottom of wall to left hand bend was awful, much better to stay on ridge if returning this way.mart079708/06/2016

A nice circuit from Tofts and the Occupation road to the Nun House Outrake track. Direct up the wall via Little Combe, and the edge of Great Combe. Steep but surprisingly dry. Back over Crag Hill, straight down from the trig, across the bog and home via the track.Gill16/04/2016

Done solo. Cloudy - quite thick on this summit. Snowing on descent. The existing snow and ice were of no use for underfoot conditions as it was not cold enough.Aimless Rambler11/02/2016

As part of a circular walk: Gragareth, Green Hill, Great Coum and Crag Hill. From parking space near Leck Fell House. Appalling weather, especially for June- high winds, thick mist at the top, 20 meter visibility. Very boggy, I wouldn't want to attempt this in winterLazylizzie05/06/2015
