From Knott Lane. Had a look at Gamelands Stone Circle in passing. Also visited the trig.Clach Liath25/05/2020
From Ortonrhalstead27/12/2019
Parked at the end of Knott Lane, and up to the trig point on grass through the limestone. Continued on to the summit. Interesting limestone 'pavements'. Cold clear day with lovely views.LizH15/11/2019
P quarry on B6260, up N side of wall to Beacon Hill & on via grassy tracks to Knott, back via trig & lunch stop at cairns c500m to SW.agentmancuso18/10/2019
From Beacon Hill. Took the path south-east to a rickety wall-stile, to join the bridleway for a short way down to a small brook. Then up over grikes and grass to the trig. Then one wall to stuggle over and eastwards to the true summit. Then returned to the bridleway and down to Scar Side and back up to the B6260 on the C2C. Solo.Man of Kernow101/09/2019

Almost Twin to according to map but hill-Bagging says Eastern top a metre higher than trigvegibagger22/01/2019
From Sayle Lane, a few places OK to park eg NY 6629 1142 after asking farmer. Then a fascinating walk up a bw followed by wandering about limestone clints and grikes, visiting candidate HPs, Castle Folds settlement, looking at butterflies and moths on a warm day with some sunshine. Spent 3h here, and met several people/groups visiting for the first time-like me. The 2000 ft cloud base made this a particularly good area to explore today.pwheeler22/07/2018
From the SW, along Knott Lane to Powson Knott trig pillar first.jonglew05/07/2018
After Beacon Hill - profusion of paths through the limestone pavement.Crib Goch24/03/2018

Approach from Raisbeck. Nice views - Yarlside looking superb.ger14/03/2018
Trig point only. Wall between trig and summit looked very fragile and it wasn't worth risking damaging itPeteN27/12/2017
With Jo, revisit from lay-by at Street. Along road, up Knott Lane, firstly to Powson Knott Trig, then crossing wall to Knott. Weather; sunny at first, cloudy later with a cool breeze. Good visibility.amblerbob08/11/2017
Parked on grass verge close to N. end of Knott Lane (farm track/public byway) at 640084. E. on grass track alongside wall & then headed N. up W. side of wall to ridge - Wall damaged just before wall junction so crossed here - Headed E. along S. side of wall to a few stones on top of a small mossy hump & assumed this to be the summit. (S)gerrybowes04/11/2017
Expected grikes but nearly all short grass. From the very top of Knott Lane with 25,000. Follow grass track along top wall to transverse wall up to the ridge: left for trig, back and right for Bagger's Summit. Back down jump on the bike and ride home. Easy.Eddie25/10/2017
Ascended by Knott Lane and headed for the trig point and then followed wall, which needed to be crossed to reach the summit.JohnW04/10/2017
Started from parking at disused quarry to the north west and via Beacon Hill. Wall between Trig Point and summit needs to be climbed unless a less direct route is taken.Fisky Boy17/09/2017

Breezy grey day but lovely views all round. From Knott Lane with Rick and Bryher.jenx28/08/2017
W Jenx and Bryher this time up from end of the lane, past water works and angled across rising ground to Trig. Over wall and along same to the claimed high point. Needs a survey! Back down following wall to pastures below, following old track on the up hill side all way back to starting point, nicer line back.nordicstar28/08/2017
With K and RM. Parked at 640 084. Used larch tree at approximately 645 092 near trig to navigate. Limestone pavement very enjoyable.Ashley14/08/2017
On a backpack from the road above Orton. Camped North of the summit. Amazing place.mick16/07/2017
Parked in Knott Lane. Along lane and onto grazing and limestone pavements. One wall to cross.Campbell Singer08/08/2016
Walk along Asby Scar from Sunbiggin Tarn(parking) to Orton, a pint, and back past the Scarside Stone Circle. Castle Folds worth a visit too.Northender05/08/2016
Plentiful parking on the verges down Knott Lane (alt 869ft), however, usage is not recommended after wet weather as road easily floods and verges are very soft (verges required for turning). Pass through the gate at the end and, if visiting the trig head straight up. If going straight to the top head diagonally upwards picking up a series of sheep tracks. One wall to negotiate, but enough gaps to mean it is not much of a problem. 2.62 miles, 498 ft ascent, 70 minutes return.moorsman02/03/2016
Visited the trig, summit and stone circle with Sail, Danu & Alfie.Dangerous Dave01/11/2015
Far too nice to stay indoors today, so had a walk up onto the tops. Orton, Raisbeck, Sunbiggin, up bridleway towards Gt Asby onto the top, back along the tops coming back down the bridleway past Scar Side and footpath back to village.Chipstertrain28/12/2014

Parked NW of Raisbeck, end of lane. Walked past stone circle onto limestone plateau. Fine limestone pavements in this area. There's a trig but highest point some distance away, small cairn near wall.Aye Jimmy31/08/2012
Feb half term cottage at Ravenstonedale. From the west w Lesley, Nick and Betty(dog). Picked our way on grassy bits over/ through the most extensive area of limestone pavements in the UK outside the Ingleborough area. SSSI. At Easter 1982 as a young Uni student camped below at Sunbiggin Tarn when walking the C to C with Tony BChris Pearson23/02/2012
As CW. If you stay on the track until the end of Knott Lane there is just 1 wall. Pleasant walk.destaylor17/02/2012

Parked just off the road on the grassy verge of Knott Lane (a dirt track) at NY 63955 08151. Very pleasant ascent. Don't forget to look at the stone circle. Good views from the summit.David Gradwell22/02/2009
