From the bend to the SE. Very muddy as well as wet and windy.NormanW23/11/2019
From Flasby, limited parking just before the bridge. Up on Dales High Way, muddy in some places and hardly exists in others. A nice pointed summit viewpoint. Descended NW ridge into the wood which was very much better.Topographer5722/10/2019
From Bog Lane, very wet underfoot after heavy rains. Lovely views.gettingonabit30/09/2019
Managed to get up here whilst it was still just lightly spotting with rain, but has been grim all day since. Lovely hill and I'm eager to see the view on a much better day.Alex C16/08/2019
After a very wet wild camp, we drove to Flasby, the clouds parted, and we were set for a beaut walk. Staring along the High Dales way up towards Flasby Fell. We did some bouldering up on Rough Haw, and had to bypass some Highland cows with crazy hair before walking up Sharp Haw. We shared a beer and a cider on the windy Sharp Haw, and dropped off the south side to bypass another set of cows, then moved west off the path to gain another ridge next to crag wood. We did some crag top yoga here, and planked the cairn. There were soem more awesome boulders here to climb, and Mark even soloed a pretty high grade scramble/climb whilst I swam in a definet bog. Finally, we tried to find Dead Eyes Wood; we were trekking and hacking our way through ferns, woods and undergrowth, to eventually come full circle back to the path. Having abbandoded this, me and Mark ran off from Dannies to hide and ambush, but she took a different path, and heard us creeping up - classic. Having ended a nice walk justByronHaywood09/08/2019

From Flasby along the Dales high way. Cant recommend this as a route. Lots of mud and squelch. Oh, & a bull. Top is a fine spot the cairn and pillar visible from a distance below. Returned via the other path (white rock) far nicer though another bull in a field this way too..stig_nest07/09/2017

Beautiful evening the night before but J & I waited until the following which time it was cold, windy, wet & no view at all. Bagging for the sake of it from the Inn just N of Skipton on the B6265 where we'd stayed for the night on the way home from a week in the Borders.NotReallyABagger29/05/2017
Very limited parking in Flasby. A couple of cars can park in a space alongside the last but one house on the dead end lane. Alternatively, a couple can tuck themselves into the edge on the road junction. Good path up to the summit col then an easy track across the fell to the summit.moorsman05/04/2017

From Embsay, on over Rough Haw (yes, it is) to Rylstone and up the bridleway to Cracoe Fell on a blisteringly hot day. Torrential rain at Upper Barden Reservoir provided a refreshing soaking. Back via Stoneridge quarries path.Gill27/08/2016

Up and down from road end on easy path. Interesting stile near summit.SS30/07/2016
Sharp Haw - Rough Hawronaldo33324/07/2016
Parked opposite gate just below corner of lane in Flasby. Not sure if it's for walkers or a turning space for the gate opposite. Waymarked path at first towards Sharp Haw. Good going all the way to the top and superb views given the modest height. Easy path through bracken to Rough Haw. Direct route to Flasby Fell has no path and two walls, but one has a gate and the other has a fallen section. Long horned cattle near top of Flasby Fell were docile. Descended NW to leave access land at footpath.ijpowell18/06/2016
With Tom W, from Bog Lane and returned via Crag Wood. Fine and dry.steve_a03/06/2016
Low cloud to the north, but clear summit. A stroll from the southN.Morters15/03/2016
From Skipton via White Hills Rd, Bog Lane, and pathway to the top - solo walk, easy navigation, very distinctive summit. Weather sunny/cloudy, ground boggy on lower parts of track. Good views across valley to Crookrise/Rylstone Cross etc.JOHNS12/02/2016
Came to the Dales to walk Cracoe Fell, but after seeing it in thick cloud we thought we would bag Sharp Haw and Rough Haw, we've seen them so many times on the way to the higher Dales peaks so we thought we would finally bag them, 3.5 mile from Bog lane. Then off to Cracoe Fell in better weather.DanTrig11/02/2016
Parked at sharp corner on Bog Lane. 1.8 miles to peak. Very wet due to excessive rainfall. Watched sunrise over a flooded Wharfedale. Wreath on trig. Company: Soloiandesbottes28/12/2015
Parked in lane to SE at 975539 and did a circuit of Sharp Haw, Flasby Fell and Rough Haw. 5.07 miles/1h39'clivevilla18/12/2015
With Anne Bellarby and Katherine Colbrook. From Flasby up Dales High Way, finishing up path that is an offshoot of this. At top saw there was a well used path going NNE so followed it. It swings round westwards to join track through forest marked on OS 1:25,000 map. The seat mentioned by others is at a track junction in the forest. Much nicer way from Flasby than Dales High Way – less muddy for one thing. Beautiful clear day with snowy tops in view.pwbellarby21/11/2015
