Parked on verge of track to Dimmingdale Farm.Walked from south in a spiral fashion up to obvious summit plateau. Great views all around.Argentum6620/04/2019
Sought permission at Dirringdale Farm. Pleasant lady explained that it was not her farm but the actual farmer was usually happy to grant access so just go ahead. Great viewpoint and interesting settlement tucked in on east side.Campbell Singer08/08/2018
Climbed with permission of farmer. Parked opposite field entrance and yomped to top. Fabulous views from topRamblingpaul09/05/2018
Glorious and surprising little cone... Disturbed a few sheep and lambs who'd settled to sleep on its upper slopesvegibagger19/04/2018
Dog left in car due to sheep with new lambs in the field, car parked at track entrance near the gate. Quick up and down followed by lots of sheep - probably thought I was there to feed them.maknipe08/04/2018
Drove past this hill yesterday - what a stunningly perfect shape. Today the cloud was down, but still worth a toddle up its E face, from Dimmingdale Rd.jonglew12/03/2018
Cool and clear at 8 am.Dugswell226/11/2017
12.7 mile walk taking in Siss Cross Hill, Freebrough Hill and Airy Hill. Freebrough Hill approached from south, easy ascent from wooden fence to southern flank of the hill. Lumpy just below the top.mrs_ts723/09/2017
Same route as AJ. Quick ascent, Sheep in field.PeterD07/04/2017
Not climbed this yet, but must do, because it is mentioned in Graeme Miles's song, Running FoxIanHHill10/10/2016
Solo. En route from Scarborough to Commondale for the ascent of Gisborough Moor, I saw this little conical hill and thought it worthy of ascent. Parked near a gate a short distance down a minor road to east. Sign seemed more about denying liability rather than denying access. Takes only a short time.pwbellarby24/09/2016
Quick stroll up this unusual little hill en route to a holiday near Whitby.citygent09/09/2016
Accommodation- one m or two? A pity the pub sign writer didn't know before producing the lovely big sign at the main road junction to N. Sadly made more obvious by the hand painted addition in green paint of the missing m and an arrow to show where it should go. A lovely little conical hill with Darren to start the day's bagging after a camp on the roadside on the moors. The influence of being in Captain Cook country yesterday lingered as from on top we spied (even without a telescope) 'new land' in a possible new Tump bing at Kilton Mine 4km off to to the north. Later we went to find, measure, and climb it, and even met the local natives (a man with a strong local accent walking his dog)Chris Pearson28/07/2016
Route as other 3 ascensionists. Easy tick for a very pleasant little hill.ngthack24/02/2016
Very distinctive hill seen from A171. Parked at side of lane to NE, opposite gate with 'Private Land' notice. Over gate and up hill, grassy summit ridge.Aye Jimmy01/06/2014
From NE, walked track S then crossed fence where convenient gap in barbed wire. No sign of the Dangerous Cattle, descended direct to gate.RHW09/11/2013
All the access points (gates etc) are padlocked and topped with barbed wire. These are then enhanced with warning notices about man-eating sheep and bulls. As a law abiding, non trespassing citizen I felt so unwelcome that I left. However, had I climbed the hill I would have found plenty of roadside parking to the north alongside the minor road heading towards Moorsholm. I would then have walked down the Dimmingsdale road, passing the first gate, as far as the place where the ridge reaches the road. Here I would have climbed the fence and then made the short climb to the top in under 5 minutes. I would then head straight down towards the first gate and climb over it. A total time of under 10 minutes (I estimate).moorsman07/09/2013
