|From Irton Pike Car Park with DW DS7 DS5 MYE, H and Rex dog. Up past the pike and down a narrow path which led into fierce bog. by mecklin beck. Some kind soul has put two garden benches up their so their was respite before taking the forestry track that encircles the hll to within 30 metres of summit. The mess of trunks and broken branches mentioned below has all gone. Was glad of the shade at the top at a very humid 23 C. Took the proper bridleway to Cinderdale Bridge and a welcome dip for hot feet ensued||nukeboy1||13/06/2020|
|Free National Trust car park at Cinderdale bridge with a handy short-cut back to the bridge. Take the bridleway by Flass Tarn then a good track leads through the felled area to within 200m of the summit. 3.3km return. 60 minutes.||moorsman||10/05/2019|
|Roadside parking (NY 1286 0378). RoW to NY 1307 0328 then tracks totop.||jonglew||07/04/2019|

|With Jules after Irton Pike||Grey Hare||22/07/2018|
|From NW, parking at roadside nr bridge. Bridleway then forest tracks. ATV goes all way to summit now if you look for the line where it skirts high ground at summit, pheasant feeding point in trees. Nice rocky top, be good if they can remove remaining trees. Penultimate Wasdale area top||nordicstar||06/12/2017|

|Up NW face. Young trees still under a metre high. Hard going though.||ngthack||09/09/2017|
|I enjoyed this one, despite it being a bit of a wasteland, using tracks from the north. the two rocky knolls in the trees were quite atmospheric||Colin Crawford||01/04/2017|
|From boggy bridleway from Irton Fell, past private signs up ploughed up muddy forestry roads and across piles of dead branches and disturbed ground/ mud. Not a good example of 'sustainable' forestry!! A nice summit nonetheless.||John Eley||03/08/2016|
|Verge parking at start of PF to NW.||mart0797||12/07/2016|
|From NW. Straight across field to gate opposite then zig zag zig up the forest vehicle track to within 200m of summit. Replanted 2014/5 - go soon.||jimbloomer||16/05/2016|
|Logging activity going on to W and SW of hill so went from Cinderdale Bridge to the N. F/p across fields to edge of wood then followed large tracks up through felled wasteland. Small crag at top can be passed easily L or R. Couple of rocky knolls in trees about 20m apart, southerly one seems higher.||Aye Jimmy||25/08/2015|
|Ascended from NE on Forest track. This was in a bad state following recent felling operations and completely blocked about halfway up by 3 or 4 large trees felled and left over the track.
Continued over the debris of felling work which was very hard going. Summit is in a near impenetrable thick copse of youngish fir trees. which prevent the view in all directions apart from south to Irton Fell.
Descended broad gully of grass, dried bracken and lower down recently felled rhododendron to a very muddy and rough track due to ongoing felling work. But good view back to the impressive crag. The track away to the west is in a terrible state.||Nick Caunt||09/04/2015|
