From Grange Farm, good parking spot at SD 9896 8088. Good farm track (v. steep) up to SD 9941 8066, whence it was rough and still steep going to the top.jonglew11/12/2019

As Des Taylor. Parked on wide grass verge 30yd beyond start of track at 989808 - Up to gate at end of track - Through gate & over wire fence using convenient wooden step - Up grass ramp to line of shooting butts & continued up to electric? fence - Crossed fence using wooden step at 997800 & then made way to summit cairn. (PM)gerrybowes10/01/2018
Parked on the bend where a track heads steeply ESE. A reasonably easy 70 minute return following the shooting butts. With GB.bolton10/01/2018
An electric fence runs NE-SW just to the NW of the highest point. I didn't see any easy way of crossing it.Alan Moore27/10/2017
From Walden Head. Took the track steeply up the flank of the fell just east of Grange Farm, then path up beside butts and through peat hags to the summit cairn. Had to keep clear of a grouse shooting party. Walk continued to Buckden Pike. With RP and BC.Man of Kernow123/08/2017
With Alfie. Dreary route following electric fence from parking area at Little Hunters Sleets. A long walk but without difficulty to an uninspiring summit. Not one I will do again. No dogs permitted on this Access Land.Dangerous Dave06/07/2017
From Great Hunter Sleets passing ruin then rough but never tough going to fence and cairn. Return on roughly the same line.SS20/05/2017
Start at very end of road in Walden Dale. Mowed grass doesn't look like parking area but resident of house says he maintains it for walkers to park. Naughtberry Hill, Buckden Pike, Tor Mere Top(be advised electric fence on top of wall so if you want to visit top keep to west of wall by going through gate at public right of way) Brown Haw (a dilemma - substantial new electric fence all along the ridge - summit is south of fence while return route is to north so go prepared unless you're parked in valley to SE).ijpowell17/06/2016
Similar route to Amblerbob and Jo.With ruin 75 yards to NW,there is good track continuing NE past shaft and waterfall to wall corner.Then track uphill but after that tracks come and go to ridge fence.At least there are no steep bits on this route and the start is only 10 minutes drive from Kettlewell.catman08/04/2016
With Jo, from Great Hunters Sleets: track north to derelict building, then NE on various tracks (none continuous) to ridge fence, then alongside this to Brown Haw. Weather; generally sunny, breezy, mild, good visibility.amblerbob25/03/2016
As Moorsman. At end of track there is a gate. A grass covered ramp/path goes off leftwards - this leads to a line of shooting buts which have a good 'path' to ridge then a new electric fence - top strand. Easy to summit.destaylor12/11/2015

Ample verge side parking on the road to Walden (west side). There is an access gate just before Grange Farm which easily accommodates a car without blocking entry. A solid based shooting track starts directly opposite and can be followed half way up to the summit. From here a little deft searching reveals vehicular tracks serving the shooting butts up to the summit ridge. (The butts are very much still active, despite the map suggesting that they are disused)moorsman29/01/2014
