From parking area at junction of roads to S E.On own.MorecambeMonkey29/03/2019
From SD49397610 using small path immediately behind the squeeze thro' the wall by litter bin. Stood on numerous bits of limestone pavement but thought the small erratic boulder was highest bit - or the adjacent spoil mound.summitsup22/06/2018

With Alf and Andy. Circular walk from Eaves Wood.mick08/12/2016
A spaghetti western outing to the summit on a limestone 'Clint East(of)wood'. Whilst deciding if this is a 'Good, Bad (or)Ugly' pun, you can also for 'A Few Dollars More' try to decide if the summit might actually be the top of a granite erratic boulder (dumped by the ice on the limestone) to the south. Visited with Darren before riding off into the sunset heading back to El Paso (aka Milnthorpe) whistling those classic big movie theme tunes. Cowboy hat, poncho and a mean stare optional.Chris Pearson30/07/2016
Also saw the fallow deer. Not very shy - they must be used to baggers.ngthack08/05/2016
From SE, a dozen fallow deer add a touch of grace to a rather odd summit.RHW06/03/2016
Deer and an owl, none of which looked particularly pleased to see me...DanHolme29/10/2015
Arnside to Silverdale via Yealand Storrs. NW-SE traverse involves crossing 2 gates marked private. Saw both the fallow deer & a green woodpecker.Smudge11/10/2015
Arnside - Haverbrack Bank - Whin Scar - Thrang Brow - Cringlebarrow Hill - Yealand Hill - Carnforth. Over the gate and up the track to the top like the rest. It was steady rain but the woods gave enough shelter to make walking fairly pleasant still.Jake99402/05/2015
Over fence up to limestone pavement as othersBramley08/04/2015
Arrived upwind of 35 fallow deer grazing around the summit in bright sunshine. No sign of Santa. Unseasonably warm.jimbloomer24/12/2014

Approach as previous loggers. Couple of possibilities for summit on limestone slabs. Saw green woodpecker at close quarters.Aye Jimmy15/08/2014
Climb the fence beside locked gate, passed agricultural building then explore limestone pavement near track junction with Martin Richardson.Dugswell208/12/2013
Not a thrill end. You decide which clint or gryke is the top - I am sure you will be right. Shy deer in the trees.Martin R08/12/2013
