From Birkett Hill, via short steep rocky descent then confused gates, then path right up. Nice limestone spine.agentmancuso12/10/2015
My 1000th English 400m+ hill. Had a Mars Bar to celebrate on the summit!. Suitable parking just beyond Fell House (alt 1024ft) where the road passes over the river. A clear path leads all the way to the top, although getting through the gates after the first small quarry is a bit of a slalom!moorsman02/10/2015
Parked at end of road out of Hartley, and after climbing Birkett Hill to the south, then descended to handy gates near Fell House before Long Rigg. Returned initially the same way and then to road in field next to Fell House.Fisky Boy05/09/2015

Contoured from Birkett Hill (405), kept high when contouring to avoid up/down in gullies. Cairn on lower summit, then new stone stile (replaces wooden one) leads to top. Continued to High Out Wood.Aye Jimmy25/05/2015
Parked at high pt on road, just above quarry. Possible to go through gate and follow nehicle tracks. Bear off well to left. One wall to cross at a corner, then a wooden gate to an ungrazed area with small trees. Leads through to stile and way to summit. Nasty wall and nettles to cross otherwise to the South. Fine viewpoint.nordicstar19/08/2014
4 top circular walk from Kirkby Stephen bagging obscure small shapely 400ers around the headwaters of the River Eden draining down form the higher fells of Nine Standards.
