Went back to bag this one after missing it first time round. Windy day but some great views of Kinder. The wind blowing the water up off downfall was quite spectacular. Detour to The Vale in Bollington on the way home for some great ales and pie. Just what the doctor ordered!!W111KYB29/03/2015

Bagged this on an epic hike from Edale to Chinley Churn and back. Edale-Jacob's Ladder-Brown Knoll-South Head-Mount Famine-Chinley Churn-Chinley Churn Trig point-Edale Cross-Jacob's Ladder-Edale. It took me approx. 7 1/2 hours. Beautiful, sunny and warm day. I spent some time trying to find the top of this hill… :Sdromeas09/03/2014
Multiple previous ascents.ngthack18/12/2013
Explored this Hill as the penultimate hill in a walk from Hayfield. After climbing South head I took the path leading down to the A6015, then the path up to Hills farm and then the permissive path across Chinley churn. The Eastern Edge is clearly higher so I walked over this and today there were beautiful views West across the Cheshire plain and East into Chapel-e-le-frith. The quarries are interesting. I carried on to explore the trig point by staying on the higher path and then climbing a fence and walking up.Dazingdale10/11/2013
Wet day, dried up slightly in the afternoon. Ascended and descended to peep-o-day farm.derlan23/06/2013

From New Mills, via the Leighton road - one long ascent. There's some nice wind eroded caves up here so it was worth it!DanHolme05/06/2012
Done with Cabe. Rather scruffy over grazed hill. How the old top was ever thought higher is a bit of a mystery.simon and co19/05/2012

From Peep o day. Very small cairn!PeteF10/12/2011
Parked on verge near Throstle Bank farm. On bridal path to find track leading uphill into mist. Crossed 2 broken walls to a field corner joined ROW track for a short distance to a few stones piled up on the edge of crags to denote the newly surveyed top. I told a young lady, who had not heard the change,about Myrddyn's video on U tube and she was going to look it up. WDP south of the crag edge to a wall. Gingerly crossed this pressing down all the time and steeply up to the column 2778 at 12.05.arranc16/10/2011
P at Peep-O-Day. ROW to gate S of Whiterakes then straight up and along top. Pile of stones.chrisbien04/10/2011
