Parked in area just off road at hard left bend. Walked along broad tracks to summit trig then on to suss cross. Moorland path back to car.Argentum6624/10/2019

Cool and sunny.Dugswell225/11/2017
12.7 mile walk taking in Siss Cross Hill, Freebrough Hill and Airy Hill. Siss Cross summit and TP both visited, easy traverse in heather spooking many grouse and a kestrel.mrs_ts723/09/2017

Both tops just in case. Bloody grouse moorMartin R24/01/2017
Parked at Robin Hood's Butts, two mile return on track to trig at summit - a very flat summit!citygent12/09/2016
With Jo, from lay-by on road to south: Siss Cross Road to the Cross and alternative top, then across moor to trig, which was hosting a lizard at the time, and top. Weather; sunny, nice breeze, with good visibility.amblerbob03/08/2016
Along track from NE and then S along(mostly)short heather.With Oscar.catman03/08/2016

Curiosity killed the cat,or in Darren's case the temptation to get too close for photos of bees at the hives (near to the road from the N) earned him a painful sting on his back. Luckily no anathalytic shock just a nasty red lump. From the trig we persevered through the heather for 500 metres SE to visit the equal height Siss Cross which we have now 'crossed off' should the height ever be upgraded, unlike David's gamble in an earlier log. Thankfully found a little path back through he heather generally heading back the right way.Chris Pearson28/07/2016
Fourth YSM of the day. A simple walk along the track then head off across the heather.Walker Dan30/08/2015
From ENE, start of rough track near Robin Hood's Butts. Dreary walk along track until a cut through heather leads to trig. Ground 10m to W marginally higher. Walked across to twin summit, Siss Cross itself at NZ 70316 10618. Mostly short heather to upright stone; upper part of cross may be lying on ground. Top of stone has groove with coins as offerings in it, only 8p though - well this IS Yorkshire! Ground about 50m to NW may be slightly higher.Aye Jimmy01/06/2014
Parking area at the junction with the Gerrik road necessitates a quarter of a mile of unpleasant road walking. Better to park in the small pull in where the bridleway starts. There is then an easy path for half the distance followed by an easy quarter of a mile westwards on the path it meets. From here it a five minute walk through the heather to a distinct trig point, Obvious secong high point 100m away so visited this just in case!.moorsman07/09/2013
Rough parking at junction with track at NZ 71292 11547. Followed track WSW for about a mile then south over rough heather to trig pillar. Not a good route if you also want to visit the 268m spot height (50k map) c500m SE. The intervening terrain looks pretty bad! We didn't visit the spot height. If the hill is ever surveyed and the spot height turns out to be higher we will go back - I promise!David Gradwell27/10/2010
