wet muddy path, no views fog.cjo07/01/2017
A walk up from the South as the gloaming turned to night. The path was very boggy but in the dark it was hard to find a dry line. The sumo was marked by a trig point. At the summit met a chap walking his 2 rather unruly dogs. They put up a few Snipe possibly as I followed him back to the car. Weather was cloudy and mild with a few spots of rain in the air. Time 25 minutes for just under a mile.isabelle13/11/2016

Early morning walk before a meeting at Tittesworth. Parked by the road close to the summit, but walked to Turners Pool. Very boggy in places on the descent to the pond. Uneventful hill maybe, but great views all round.MrChris198013/09/2016

Done solo in excellent conditions. I did it by the shortest route because I was passing that way. Peak bagging solely for the sake of it,Aimless Rambler19/06/2014
Climbed as part of a 11.5 mile walk with Nottingham HF ramblers A group starting from near Ramshaw rocks, and including the Roaches, Turners pool and then up to GUN and around to Tittesworth reservoir. Nice view of the Roaches and Hen Cloud. Quite a measured ascent.Dazingdale01/06/2014
Enjoyed more than I thought, unmettaled lane from N, between pleasant moorland and high woodland to top. Hazy,but good enough to get views of familiar hills- the Cloud, Roaches. Those visited many times with friends but we'd never been up Gun. From Redshawe Triangle,lots of parking space, back same way. On way from Sladiburn to Warwick via Billinge Hill and Gun.pwheeler20/04/2014
Climbed on a beautiful, sunny spring day. Part of a 6 mile circular walk from Meerbrook. Recommend the Lazy Trout pub in in the village- nice food and dogs can go inside.Lazylizzie15/04/2014
