Warm and sunny morning for the walk up from Hilton using the long and winding track. Then onto Tinside Rigg before heading back to Roman Fell which I descended NE down to Swindle Beck.Dugswell206/05/2018
Large piles of large gritstone boulders with several cairns and old ruined hut in rough grass. Part of circuit involving Tinside and Long Fell and limestone pavement. Many voles. Fog suddenly lifted to reveal extensive views- nice end to walk. First Tump of 2018. Returned down western ridge ( initially steep) to main bridleway and west to Hilton village. No ammo seen.Denise 01/01/2018

Walked on my own from Hilton along Swindale Edge and Christy Bank then over Tinside Rigg, Long Fell and Roman Fell.Dry and pleasant. A bit breezy but the wind wasn't cold so it was fine. The walk up Swindale Edge is great, clear makers all the way. Make sure you check the access days for this fell as it is on Warcop MOD land.flockwatcher30/04/2017
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
A nice little circuit. Shame the mist blew in.jenx08/01/2017
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 along Scordale, Swindale, and via Tinside Rigg and Long Fell. Then back to Hilton via the zigzag track and permissive bridleways. Much to our surprise we met Crib Goch and Andy on the approach to Roman Fell who it turned out were on a similar route round!Fisky Boy06/09/2014

Ignore the map as the MOD have created a series of concessionary paths enabling easier access to this fell. Just follow the ROWs eastwards onto the range and you will pick them up. You can follow them up the sharp end to the top. Only place in England having (heavy) snow on the day I went up. Five miles away in any direction...... Clear blue skies.moorsman03/11/2012
Ascended directly from Hilton. Snow on the top.davidpettit8404/02/2012

Start ~ 735207, Hilton village. From Little Fell, descended via Christy Bank, contoured around Tinside Rigg and made our way over rough ground up to top. Fine summit views, descended into Swindale, rough going over rocks in places.steve hudson31/12/2011
