From Hilton w Jenx, free CP. Took the lane at first under Roman Fell and then a Quad track up the broad NW ridge, steepest towards top. Then in mist and on compass to Long Fell and Tinside Rigg. Great decent down the Bridleway and Swindale Beck and then the sublime Scordale.nordicstar08/01/2017

From Hilton out to Swindale Beck then well up row before cutting back to Roman Fell. Followed broad ridge back and over Long Fell and Tinside Rigg (English Nuttalls finished again)! Decided might as well break all the rules and did Little Fell again via the trig point. Great walk and didn't see a single bit of munitions.SS31/12/2016
From Hilton. Up Swindale, Tinside Rigg, Long Fell, then track round SW side of Roman Fell. Made sure I did all the minor lumps on the Tinside Rigg / Long Fell plateau. Top of Swindale is very lumpy with so many gills to cross. Saw the shell case on Long Fell. Non-firing day.Owen B06/11/2016
