Sunny and a bit of a breeze. P near cattle grid at high point of road E of BH. Straight up to a flat top then onto the equally flat top of WL.chrisbien11/08/2018
Climbed as part of run from Dunbar, but left Woodhall Deane on wrong side, so ended up having to jump a burn to approach from East. Pretty remote and a hard one in the snow.IainHillHunter11/02/2018
From Clints Dodd, tracks to be found but boggy in places. returned via wind farm.Adrian02/11/2017
From N as per Colin. Path not bad, ground part frozen, in wellies all day and snow falling this eve.RHW28/01/2017
From Hartside. It should have been easy, with a path all of the way. Sadly, the entire path surface has been churned up by cows or horses, making the walk a struggle over a pitted quagmire. Indistinct summit.Colin Crawford21/02/2016
