From train stn car park, back along road to Boot then good fellside tracks. Boat How first then dropped down here. Took a direct route back to Boot - steep, rocky and bracken covered.jonglew13/08/2019
Places for 2 cars on the road near the entrance to Beckfoot Station and room for about 4 more 100m east. A straightforward and very pleasant walk along a good track to just beyond the col from where it is only a short hop to the summit. 3.42 km return, 1 pleasant hour.moorsman09/05/2019

Bleatarn Hill from GR: NY 16872 00466ronaldo33328/10/2017
Fine weather, from Beckfoot halt. Decent little fell with its own tarn. Took route one to Boat Howe across mercifully semi frozen moongrass.Wycombe Wanderer05/01/2017
On a backpack.Came up from Irton Rd. 25 degrees hot work then took ridge west and north of Blea Tarn. Pathless and very rough deep tussocky ground dont recommend it. Camped under summit could see and hear Gas Riggs flaring out to sea. Found a newish dog lead if anyone on here lose it?mick14/09/2016
With Great Barrow from Bootjimbloomer16/05/2016
The first hill of the year following what seems like incessant rain since October. Still, it was good to get the legs going and a fresh but clear sky made it fantastic.Karmakarl03/02/2016
Up from Dalegarth Stn. On way to Boat & Great Hows. Been rude not to take it in.ngthack11/01/2016
A sunny morning becoming hazy with that indefinable smell of the sea, ozone and the earth breathing. Summit cairn now slightly bigger than in the photo of the fell.Karmakarl02/10/2015
Visited on a lovely morning prior to continuing to Boat How. Found the cairn in disarray for the sake of revealing the trig bolt. Rebuilt to leave bolt visible should folk wish to see it. Will post on TP:UK to ask for some sense in the hills....nordicstar01/10/2015
From Boat How, passing stone circles en route; there's a partly demolished cairn on summit rock and large OS bolt next to it.Aye Jimmy18/08/2015
K/J/C. Blue sky, Blackthorn and Gorse in flower. Another visit to out local top.Karmakarl01/05/2015
