From Faceby village, with K and Stephen M.IanHHill19/10/2018
from Swainby-S-Cleveland Way over Live Moor down through woods up Whorl Hill back to start.joseph mitchell04/09/2018
Slog up through the trees to the summit, adjacent to small quarried area.mrs_ts723/06/2018
First of day at first light. From SE.Dusty29/11/2017
Very straightforward navigation. I parked by a gate at Gd:484024 where a ROW takes you through fields until reaching the woods. Had a chat with the farmer who was mending a gate, really nice bloke. Then higher up the owner of the house, (which the ROW goes past) made an unwelcoming grunt when I gave him a cheery wave. No doubt the ROW was there before he bought the place! Really good little hill the actual summit is close to the old quarry.thenomad01/11/2017
Open deciduous woods from the SEvegibagger13/09/2017
Popped down to collect this and complete the Tees River & Spine thing. Down to High Farm, parking available, then through the garden and relatively straightforward up the Southern hillside, not sure problems others report. Top is near old quarry/depression.nordicstar06/07/2017
From Faceby church, steep tree covered hillside which will be covered in bluebells in a few weeks time. Several Bivouac shelters seen on route to summitcjo12/03/2017
From Faceby with Darren. Good paths then through trees to summit - someone had been building dens / shelters from sticks.Chris Pearson27/07/2016
Tree covered summit so the actual summit is difficult to be certain of. GPS gave the correct height at 49380 02519.JohnStoneham12/06/2016
Success! Thrash up through the wood from the Faceby side.arranc11/03/2016
From E, path signed through house garden. Three summit contenders near what appears to be former small quarryRHW17/07/2015
With Jo, from Whorlton Church: paths to Whorl Hill Wood (lovely bluebells), then through trees to summit area. Weather; generally sunny, windy, warm, good visibility en route to wood, none thereafter due to density of trees.amblerbob03/06/2015
Solo. Awkward top as other say but have a go at 15180 New Pieces before complaining.simon and co22/05/2015
From Whorlton near church, new walkers' signpost to Faceby. Track through fields then step over fence and direct to tree-covered summit area. There are at least three summit contenders. My favourite is 5m back into wood from small craglet.Aye Jimmy10/03/2013
Access via the footpath passing behind the church. Don't try and use the unmetalled road just north as there is no access between this route and the hill itself. "Private" notices prevent you sneaking across!moorsman12/08/2012
From Whorlton. Tree covered top.PaulH29/02/2012
Accessed the hill from the nearby village of Faceby. No tracks over the high point will is tree covered. Locating this was a nightmare even with the aid of a GPS. One to be avoided unless you're particularly dedicated!yorkie27/02/2012
