2/3 Parked at the church at Rusland, up the BOAT to Stricely Intake, then down to Force Mills, and used woodland tracks to reach the car park just outside Satterthwaite. Up Bridleway, and Footpath to Little Knott, then down to the tarn and worked round using tracks to Higher Thorny Stack. Lovely woodland trails between the tops. Tops not too bad.nickywood130/05/2020
Bridleway from car park then approached from edge of forest to north. On to Higher Thorny Slack.Wycombe Wanderer19/05/2019
Having fought my way up I took the time to explore the various potential high spots. I agree with Richard that SD 33024 92017 ish is the highest point,DC11main02/03/2019
Came from the BW to the S, through the wall at the high point of the pass and onto logging tracks that passed the summit rocks. GPS altitude measured 201m, ... and 196m at alternative top on the ring contour nearer the boundary wall.Moorponder04/01/2019
Fram small woodland CP a little S of Satterthwaite Bridge. RoW initally, then cut up through woodland to HP, another outcrop. Went on to Higher Thorny Slack. With Rick Salter.jonglew19/03/2018

Little Knott > Higher Thorny Slack from GR: SD 33692 91972ronaldo33301/10/2017
From SD331 918 an old path makes an easy rising traverse into forest and reaches ridge line. Good Deer(?) path N along the ridge accesses the potential high points. GPS considered SD 33028 92017 in the N 190m contour ring as the highest point but the S ring high point felt higher. I didn't venture into the NE ring. GPS accuracy was a poor 6m.RichardM30/12/2016
With Jo, from Brock Crag: track via Satterthwaite to just west of summit, then 150m of mature forest. Then onto Higher Thorny Slack. Weather; misty, mild, poor visibility.amblerbob18/12/2016
Approached from E corner of tarn keeping a little R (ENE) initially to keep in mature, less dense, forest for as long as possible. Thereafter route finding, in denser forest, not to difficult because of fairly obvious NS ridge. Not too desperate, rather relieved in fact. Descended due S for more mature forest and track back to car.jimbloomer15/03/2016
From E, followed b/way then pasture then traversed 'ridge' N-S. AS AJ says, a few summits, but one clearly higher I thought. Dense spruce: least-worst ascent is probably from E corner of tarn which is well worth a visit. Then on to Higher Thorny Slack which was much worse...RHW06/09/2015
Bridleway from E then lesser track to L passing magnificent tall pines. At crest of path went up into wood on right. This appears to be a ridge heading N pursued with difficulty for 250m passing several possible 'summits' before ground started to fall away. No idea which was highest. Map 1:25,000 shows lot of ground above 190m contour in three areas. Worst thrash today but at least it was dry...Aye Jimmy18/04/2015
Another battle through the trees but not too far.peebs02/02/2015
