11.5 mile walk from road west of Tarnbrook, plenty of space to park 0.5 miles before the hamlet, walked into hamlet then took permissive track north up to contouring track followed this then another trail right up to the summit (first time bagged since 2005), afterwards followed surprisingly easy and dry ridge all the way to Wolfhole Crag, turned back then took permissive track back down to Tarnbrook. After this we drove to and bagged Nicky Nook and then Williamson Park. Warm and sunny with clear skies but slightly hazy, had good views of the Dales peaks but not of the Lakes. Saw 5 other people.DanTrig20/05/2020

Walked on my own from Abbeystead. . Drizzly but warm and humid as I climbed but as I headed back towards Ward's Stone it turned wetter and cooler. A handy fence leads directly to the trig point of this fell which was very useful in the cloud.flockwatcher03/08/2018

From Tower Lodge. A blizzard on the top made it more of an adventure.RobertP11/02/2018
HP is a sloping, climbable rock next to trig in a cluster of large, weathered, gritstone outcrops on the S side of the wall. The ground was frozen, heather glowed red in cool sun, which also illuminated silver puddles. We could see across to snow -dusted Inglebrough, Pen Y Ghent and Whernside as well as the Howgills and Lakeland Fells. Ascended on good gravel track from Tarnbrook hamlet to the ridge and then along the ridge on frozen heather moorland following fence line.Continued to Ward's Stone- superb walk.Denise 07/01/2018
From the W along the moorland ridge keeping to the S side of fence / wall. A great little summit with gritstone boulders and trig. Icy, clear views, sunshine cold. No Wolves.RichardM07/01/2018
Extended the Ward's Stone walk to pick this off, turned into a 28k trudge over rough wet ground. Back to Jubilee Tower car park 2hrs after sunset. Sunshine, blizzards, driving rain - had it all today, except wind thankfully.jonglew25/11/2017

Easy parking within Tarnbrook village (several sizeable areas once you pass the first house). From here a gravelled shooting track leads right up to the top of the ridge. A good footpath then leads from here to the top. A good starting point if you wish to take in Ward Stones as well (10 miles round trip)moorsman01/10/2013
Parking easy. As DL but returned via track. The track goes further than on the 1:50 map. Fence starts 1.66km from summit and path is OK.destaylor29/08/2013
