From small car park at end of lane at NY 17113 00303. Dalegarth How > Hodge How > Crag Coppice > Gate Crag.David Gradwell09/06/2019
The footpath starting from behind the small lake does exist but the ladder stile is slightly in variance to the OS map .position .. it is a short distance further west. A small path heads up to a squeezer stile. After this, either follow the intermittent RoW or, as I did, after crossing the wall, look for the wall which follows the gully straight up to the summit. A steep climb but with a path most of the way and leading almost directly to the summit.moorsman08/05/2019
Green lichenous cairn in tussocky bog and outcropping rock in low cloud and rain- First hill of group walk from Eskdale YH.Others not impressed!Denise 28/12/2018
Cloudy/wet walk over tumps and the wainwright, Green Crag. Cloud lifted as we came down the valleyJoel45128/12/2018
From Doctor Bridge, path then wet moorland in mist and rain. Summit has 2 lichenous rock outcrops ~50m apart and of similar height, but too misty to differentiate by Abney. The most SE outcrop is topped by small cairn. With Denise, Graham, Sarah, Tony M, Joel, Fran, Jenny, Tamsin & Jess.RichardM28/12/2018
From Trough House Bridge CP (free), via bridge at NY 173002, then little used path to stile at SD 1782099427. Then open country via Hartley Crag - the wall between Hartley Crag and Great Ctrag is delapidated, providing many crossing points.Isbjorn09/12/2018
On a round of 6 hills from Woolpack car park. Impressive looking hill from the approach from the WSW after bit of a circuitous track to cross the Esk, on a new bridge not marked on my map. On to Kepple Crag.jonglew18/12/2017
From parking nr Beckfoot station, last of the day in last of the light. Up the track to gain height then rising contour to collect peak, back same way with headtorch.nordicstar05/12/2017
Hodge How > Dalegarth How > Crag Coppice > Gate Crag from GR: NY 18870 00916ronaldo33329/10/2017
From Doctor Bridge. Mining track weaves uphill from Low Birker and then levels out above the stepping stones above Birker Force. Splendid Hill. Parking at Dr Br.jimbloomer14/03/2016
Accent from Trough house bridge, up a rather indistinct and little used path to the east of Stanley Gyll. Gets boggy on the level to the step stile, but once beyond it rises steeply on good dry turf. A terrific scramble is available after the gap between Hartley Crag and Gate Crag. Descent via the Green Crag peat track.Karmakarl12/02/2016
Returning to Eskdale from Great Whinscale, the boggy section no problem in the dry weather. Twin summits. Fine views from above of the Gate Crag cliffs and waterfall on the way back to the valley.Aye Jimmy10/06/2015
