Parked at small car park by gate in road at NY 1688,2417. South on RoW then cross Hope Beck by sheep fold overgrown with bracken - Someone kindly rebuilt a rock crossing quite recently. Continue on path then cut up SE through bracken before springs. Follow path SE then S then SW. Path splits before hause, best to go up via hause turning right just after crags and just past path on left to Whiteside. Three cairns at top most southerly highest, most northerly lowest but has best views.Hillsidenick30/10/2017
