Clockwise on my own from Dent.Phreerunner20/07/2020
First walk for a long period of time. Parked at the view point/car park (pt 204) on the A684 and walked up the road towards the cattle grid. Broke off to the right before the grid and climbed up until I meet the path, an old ATV track. Followed this southwardish and parallel to a wall on the left(eventually a forest on the left for a while) until it met a cross wall running east/west. turned left and followed this wall on the north side crossing three other cross walls using very good styles. From the last style to the top was a short distance. Top is obvious, a trig point. reached by another style. Brilliant views of the Howgills. Return to the car park by the way up.Walk was dry. In the wet I could see it being a bit of a slog.MikeM29/05/2020
From NW, large car park at Pt 204, short distance east along road to cattle grid where there may be limited parking. ATV track roughly follows course of stone wall on SW side then continues south of a spruce plantation up past 400m, then faint path and stone wall stile gates to summit. Ideal conditions, sunny afternoon, light wind and hard frosted ground.Topographer5701/12/2019
Circular run from Dent up the Dales High Way past Lunds then along the wall line to the top.Then down over Rise Hill, Black Hill before dropping down into Cowgill and back along the Dales Way to Dent.Fellhugger10/11/2019

With Val. From Dent. Road walk to near Barth Bridge then Dales High Way to ridge. Followed a path on the north side of a wall to the summit. A bit wet in places. Returned same route. Good weather.mike.hoult10/09/2019
Up and back from viewpoint car park NW. Soggy going in parts. Path alongside ridge wall better than the sort-of path by the wall on the way up.squeegs28/07/2019
Purgatorial grind up semi-liquid ATV track beside forestry in 30mph wind. Some sunshine on return route. Rounsfell03/06/2019
On LDWA Group walk, along the Dentdale route and up to the summit and along the ridge. Nice hill well worth walking the whole ridge.nickywood128/04/2019
A fine walk from the car park to the NW with friends we were spending the week with. Not the most interesting hill I must admit. Good paths and step type stiles all the way up.Father Ted18/04/2019

From campsite in Dent via High Hall farm.NormanW23/02/2019
From the large, pot-holed car park (SD 6945 9124). Easy 4k walk up, following the wall, on a good track.jonglew14/02/2019
5 mile walk out-and-back from near viewpoint NW, took footpath south then followed wall by the forest (the trail here being pretty non-existent) until it joined the ridge wall, followed the path on the north side of the ridge wall to summit. Great views for a hill of its size surrounded by mountains, lovely day, not a cloud in the sky with nice breeze made walking very easy.DanTrig01/07/2018
Walked from Dent station. Direct route across Access land looked very rough, so I walked down the road to Cowgill then up the track to near the forest then followed the ridge all the way to the top and returned the same way.IanHHill28/04/2018
Aye Gill Pike from GR: SD 69427 91221ronaldo33324/02/2018

A direct ascent and descent along boggy rough grass from the car park to the north west ( for Sedgewick geology trail- Dent Fault) . Low cloud obscured views, but larks sang. Trig on top. mainly followed the walls which have helpful stiles within them .Denise 13/03/2017

Aye Gill Pike and Helms Knott. Parked in layby at Barth Bridge - up minor road to Lunds, then obvious route to AGP. On return detoured to Helms Knott - rough terrain then very steeply down south side to Mire House - about a mile back down road. 8 miles - circa 4 hours.Crib Goch27/08/2016
From 694880 turn off to Hining Hill farm. Up the road (really access only as limited parking) continued up the track between walls at Lunds. Then up the side of the wall to ridge (tree on horizon demarks where it meets the ridge line wall. Follow on north side as there are styles through the walls (not so on the south). Easy slope (a little boggy in places) to the summit trig. Good views to Whernside/Great Coum and Howgills on a sunny evening.N.Morters13/07/2016

From Helmside (parking at SD 68474 89009) in Dent Dale then along the ridge to the east end.Alan Moore18/02/2016
From Dent. A traverse of the hill and the Dales Way in the valley gave a satisfying walk of great beauty and interest. Fine, though quite hazy views. You need a 1/25K map to get through Keld (Dentdale), the way off the hill to the Dales Way W of Dent. In all,13 miles. Staying at Dent enhanced the enjoyment of walking in the area. It's got the balance between a vibrant community and catering for visitors just right.And 2 good pubs!pwheeler09/09/2015

From the carpark on A684 (694912), up the long ridge. Stiles in all the right places.tim74729/10/2014
Walked up from Dent campsite via Calf Top and the huge crags on its northern slopes. Stiff pull up the side of this one through lots of rushes but then an easy stroll along the top (BM S5665) which I reached at 1.45pm. Now just 4 Lake District Marilyns to complete in E&W.signyred07/07/2014
Parked beside the river to the west of Dent and then used Barth Bridge to get to the ridge about 2 miles NW of top (69458985). Flogged to the top and then back tracked about 400m to a stile which once crossed allowed a direct descent to Schoolbred farm and Church Bridge. A fine circuit.mindlessflogger19/05/2014
from Garsdale Foot in mist and drizzle, so no view Very wet underfoot. Then Baugh fellThearlaichdubh01/04/2014
From car park on A684. V wet underfoot.CJM26/03/2014
There is now a concessionary path leading from the south, starting at the Dent road, giving access through Hall Farm to the open access area. The wall can be followed all the way from here to just west of the summit. Remember though, as you reach Hall Farm there is an arrow pointing to the right. Cross the footbridge and turn immediately left alongside the beck to a second bridge just visible 20m away. This way is dry all the way to the summit ridge, then the bogs start! Only for a few hundred metres though! There is a free roadside parking area to the south of the bridge before Dent village.moorsman05/03/2014
2-day trip to the Marilyn hotspot of Dentdale, with Tom Leach, making good use of the railway! Dent campsite - Long Moor - Aye Gill Pike - Dent station - Great Kn Hill - Wold Fell - balcony path - Dent station. Good weather and great to stride out across the moors.Mark Jackson13/04/2013
