Round Harthope glen from Langleeford with Alexander. Snow almost all gone, fair amount of sunshine, very little wind, though it still had an edge coming from the east.agentmancuso10/04/2019
Parked at Langlee, then Langlee Crags, then followed track cut through heather past Long Crags and then followed track across to hill. The path up proved to be a bit of a slog.Wheelsy03/01/2019

Up from Langleeford CP via crags. Nice route up, not too boggy. Afterwards on to Comb Fell, which was boggier.IanHHill02/11/2017
From head of Harthope valley w Jenx and Bryher. Weather just about dry, cloud down at 500m. Dark and gloomy. Path pleasant up after bridge but past long crag became increasingly boggy. Mind there wasn't a path here when I first went up here, you followed the fence down and then headed across the marsh!. Nice on top, a small weasel for company in the rocks!nordicstar25/09/2017
Not many views as we headed up into the mist. Nice lower down through the crags.jenx25/09/2017
Circular route from parking area at Langleeford: Hedgehope Hill, Comb Fell, Cairn Hill, Cairn Hill West Top, The Cheviot, then back to Langleeford via Scald Hill. Super sunny day with dry conditions which made easier work of areas of blanket bog on Hedgehope Hill & Comb Fell. I met a basking viper just above parking area on my return to Langleeford!Cas-gwent18/07/2017
Reached while walking the Northern Crossway direction was over Dunmoor hill and onto Hedgehope.WAYNE ROWLETT27/06/2017
Cheviot horseshoe anticlockwise, including a quick detour to Auchope Cairn. Steep on the way down, I get the impression the opposite direction could have been a lot more challenging!the_adam24/06/2017
Reached as part of the Hedgehope Winter Wipeout Race with Lorna. Freezing with ice on the top. Access was easy and good going.Lykewake4222/01/2017

Set off from Harthope Valley at 4pm and made the summit a little after 6pm. Going was tough in the sun (23C) but worse was to come. Hillside was alive with flying ants that swarmed all over me, arms, legs, face everytime I tried to stop to take in water. Made for a hell of an ascent. Nice views at the top though.NorthernWayfarer23/08/2016

Nuttall's 8.1 walk from Langleeford (in reverse). Big car park to east of farm. Good paths to summit, which can't be said for the whole horseshoe! Our first hill in the Cheviots. Didn't meet a soul since leaving car park until we got to Cairn Hill.Hillsidenick26/05/2014
