Lovely day. One of best. Parked at Dob Gill. Why do we have to pay United Utilities to park on our land? Up to Harrop Tarn and beyond to watershed above Blea Tarn. Luckily track to summit was fairly dry. With Mag.iredale01/10/2015

Nice ascent starting from just south of Dobgill Bridge. Harrop Tarn was reached quickly, then from there the gradient lessens, making this a straightforward climb. A clear, warm day, so great views in every direction.James McKnight19/09/2015

Quite a slog across boggy ground from any direction. On a clear day this is mitigated by being able to aim for the hill top in a direct line. In mist it must be thoroughly depressing if you can't see the way ahead.moorsman16/10/2014
