With family. From CP in village, ascent on good opaths via lane by church via Pusgill. Descent to NNW and return via Hurning Lane (the descent route if staying on paths goes through a few fields of cattle and is extreme muddy (cattle slurry!) in places.benalder28419/10/2019

Solo. From car park in Dufton along bridle way up Pus Gill, through gate to access land and up SE ridge to summit. Back same way. Fresh snow covered the hill. I had previously claimed that I climbed Dufton Pike in 1942 and that this was my first Marilyn. I withdrew this claim in 2017 as I felt that there was insufficient evidence that the summit had been reached.pwbellarby09/03/2019

Started 3.30pm, soon after arriving in Dufton, as Pike was clear to see and afternoon calm. Took just 1hr 15mins to reach summit and able to admire long distance views before mist began to creep in.Peak Rambler13/09/2018
En route to Lakes, walked up from Dufton Village just as rain was stopping on a generally miserable day.IanHHill29/07/2018
Parked at Cow Green Reservoir and left just after 8.00am. Climbed to Dufton Fell past 692m trig point. Descended in Rundale Beck and followed track to south west corner of Dufton Pike. Climbed to reach summit at approximately 12.30pm. Returned via similar route although went further up Runedale Beckvalley past kiln before returning via trig point to High Cup Nick Valley. Hard going on the return as very dry and windy and I 'hit the wall'. Eventualy back to the car park at 6.10pm so 10 hours total. Saw no more that 12 people on a glorious day for walking. Made sure open access dates were ok.TractorBoy30/06/2018

Easy there and back from Dufton village.milimana01/07/2017
Possibly one of the best Marilyns in the Pennines, notable for the complete absence of bogs. A very pleasant afternoon stroll from Dufton, up the delightfully named Pus Gill, a fine, steep grassy climb to the top, down the NW side, to Great Rundale Beck, Pennine Way and then the track leading to the West End of Dufton.Gill28/06/2017
From Dufton with J as a leg stretcher to break up the journey to the Borders for a week's (NotReally) Bagging. A superb wee summit with good views broken by occasional squalls. Pity we didn't have a bit more time to explore the neighbouring high ground.NotReallyABagger20/05/2017
The highlight of a day's (5h20min) walking in the fascinating Whin Sill area between the high pennines and Eden Valley. After Brownber Hill(qv), up a thin trod from GR 703268, near the old quarry. Steep grass, joining a very obvious path up the SE ridge. Lovely summit- an E gale blowing just below it on the ESE side, but just a gentle breeze on the lovely summit and the delightful NW ridge which is reminiscent of the NW hills in Lakeland. With sunshine everywhere, the E wind wouldn't have the strength of a Helm wind, which might have made my route much less pleasant. As it was- a really good day, thoroughly recommended.pwheeler08/05/2017

7.5 walk from Knock village in perfect weather, walked up path to Knock Pike (Nice Little Hill), then back and along paths across fields to NW ridge up onto Dufton Pike (Great Little Hill), descended same way and thought Brownber Hill looked to tempting to ignore, so slogged up steep slopes to Brownber Hill Top, back along paths to Knock, then travelled to Baugh Fell.DanTrig16/05/2016
