Straight up from A686 through open gate onto hillside. No path. With Eire, Evan, Coel, Danu & Alfie. Walked down the ridge over Scarberry Hill (598m) and Park Fell (511m) then down for a pint in Alston.Dangerous Dave18/06/2017

Parked on small layby on A686 opposite disused stone building at NY 65826 42317. Quad-bike track heads south from here to ridge fence then carries on alongside fence to summit. A bit boggy in places but mostly easy tromping.David Gradwell02/11/2016

Along Fence from Park Fell and back. Very wet underfoot.Crib Goch24/11/2012
Small pull-in suitable for a couple of cars alongside the Alston road. Tried to follow the fence line upwards but became sucked in by the boggy ground. Moved a short distance away and came across A vehicle track which ran straight towards the top cutting off the angle of the fence. Followed it back down to the roadside access point.moorsman24/06/2010
