Logged Descriptions  (logged by 24 users)ByDate of Ascent
Easy parking at start of path into the woods. Open access so free to roam at will. Walked all the way though the woods on a good track which led out onto the moor. From here it is a short, unhindered walk to the summit. About 25 minutes returnmoorsman09/05/2019
With Tali, out from Nether Wasdale.Mountain Goat23/02/2019
Room for several cars both sides of road at a gate into woodland (NY 1138 0226). Stone wall with wire atop to be negotiated.jonglew09/12/2018
Got there just in time to see the Wasdale fells illuminated by the evening sun. Sat and drank in nature's wondrous bounty.Wycombe Wanderer30/09/2018
P by RoW. Along RoW to gate then SW to top.chrisbien23/06/2018
From roadside parking and gate into woods as described by others. Jenx and Bryher followed later, wall has a weak point to North of woodland 'top'. Good views on a dreek day, fine granite plugs. Final top in Wasdale areanordicstar06/12/2017
Nice woodland scamper for Bryher.jenx06/12/2017

Great tranquil summit. Accessed via gate thru wood then over tricky (high) stone wall.John Eley06/08/2016
From gated entrance to Greengate Wood (NT). Head N initially for 100m before ascending more steeply WNW.jimbloomer16/05/2016
As Aye Jimmy (only two days later). RHW's hole has been repaired so wall has to be climbed. There are three other 100m contour rings in the vicinity but all can be safely discounted due to 111.55m (366ft) spot height at the cairn on old OS map.David Gradwell27/08/2015
From large layby and gate into wood from SE, and sign: NT Greengate Wood Conservation area, created after great storm 8th Jan 2005. Green track, then over wall to summit area, short section of head high bracken and thistles to cairn. Nothing round about looked higher.Aye Jimmy25/08/2015
