From parking to West mainly on open moor.rhalstead25/06/2020
From Lund Tower, via wainmans pinnacle, hitching stone, mawstones to summit. Return same way. Path between hitching stone and mawstones is lost to these eyes so involved a slog through heather. Relatively dry so not really an issue, but best avoided when wet.Longwojo14/06/2020
Parked at lay by west of Combe House. Followed sunken track which eventually fades. Nice and dry underfoot due to the warmest May on record. Solo.Dangerous Dave02/06/2020
Hard work spongy tussocky exercise walk from km to the west. Parents wedding anniversary. Poignant since dads death five years back. Nice to think of him, and him introducing me to the hills and Munros of Deeside.vegibagger21/04/2020
Small layby west of road junction. 75 minute return through Slippery Stones Farm, Pennine Way then across rougher stuff to the top. Solo. Rained as well.bolton10/03/2020

Straight up here after an enjoyable stay at YHA Haworth. Also visited the eastern top just to be sure.Alex C12/10/2019
As jonglew, parked in the small layby 30m W. of junction at 9791 3789 - E. along narrow road for 200m & then up track/RoW past Slippery Stones Farm (friendly farmer) to join Pennine Way by rickety old stile/fencing in wall corner at 982385 - Up Pennine Way to The Sea (a pool!) & then path, faint in places, over rough grass to the trig point & unmarked summit. (S)gerrybowes05/10/2019
Solo. Parked in small lay-by near the junction of Crag Bottom Rd & New Laithe Rd (SD 97943 37907). Then E along Crag Bottom Rd to Pennine Way at Crag Nook Farm. Along P.W. to two small ponds (The Sea on O.S. map!). From here an indistinct track leads to summit.ADT02/08/2019
Parked to the South East in lay-by SD979378.David Evans13/07/2019
From Combe Hill Cross up shooters track over Combe Hill. After Great Nick the track peters out but faint path continues beside fence to Great Wolf Stones. At this point just short of where fence bends to SE there is the remains of a tiny broken stile. Top two wires can be disconnected at this (2ft between posts) point to allow easy stride over to faint path to trig column at summit. Good views f Pendle and Boulsworth, Ingleborough and Penyghent to north and even Ferrybridge Power Station a long way away to the SE.Nick Caunt22/03/2019
From parking area at se006381 on Hare Hill Edge, along Millennium Way - Pennine Way, longer walk but better parking place.BLACKHILL19/02/2019
From the south along Penine way then across moor to trig. Parked east of start on bend, room for 1 car tucked in.mart079731/01/2019
Layby good for 2-3 cars at SD 9791 3789. Took RoW up through Two Laws Farm to meet PW. Ground a bit tussocky but ok on leaving PW for last 3-400m.jonglew10/01/2019
On minor road to south and up PW with Jenx and Bryher. Parking at bend in road on bridge not recommended. 100m further East of PW track room for one car to tuck in at old gateway. PW good, easy going and short diversion to top. High point could be any of lumps and bumps around the trig.nordicstar10/01/2019
Nice walking on Pennine Way from south. Mist cleared as we descended.jenx10/01/2019

The ATV track is not on the map so made the same unnecessary slog from the parking spot as Denise. Mind you the road is a lot busier than I anticipatedpeebs29/10/2018

From the SE along PW, which was easy going underfoot. As PW beared off north kept in straight line for the trig. Found stile across fence and HP near trig.PeterD12/05/2018
Parked at the 'P' on OS map at SD 948390 to the SW and attempted to follow the path marked. Although there is a gate and a RoW sign the path appeared non existent to us and the ground was very hard-going- rough tussocks, luckily frozen. It did ease as we ascended, with more heather and moss. We found a track on top of Combe Hill which we followed NE then East to Great Wolf Stones- outcrop. Then we crossed the fence NE on a faint path for short thrash through heather to the summit Trig. We decided the HP was an outcropping rock 10 p NW. We did not continue NE to Mawstones Hill, across the Pennine Way, which is marked as 1m lower- terrain looked hard! On descent we followed the track to back to Combe Hill and then SW across Onion bank and then South to Combe Hill Cross ( remains of ) marked on 1:25 map. This track is excellent- would be the preferred route if not on the PW. It joins the road at SD 955386 by a house called Combe Cross, near sign saying Welcome to Langshawbridge (and noDenise 25/02/2018
From rubbish filled layby at SD 9479,3898. Rough going ENE over luckily frozen moorland until reaching good ATV track on SE side of wire fence. Moorland summit with trig pillar and a few gritstone outcrops. Large expanse of similar height moorland to the NE. Followed the good ATV track back to road arriving at the gate opposite the 'No Parking' sign beside Combe Cross House.RichardM25/02/2018
Up the PW from the SE.Chris Peart19/10/2017
On P Way in 2011 just walked past it, it seems. Went back today after first climbing Round Hill near Top Withens, which I'd also bypassed the same day.back.IanHHill18/04/2017
2nd hill of 4 today on a route from Haworth to Oakworth visiting the the Brontë waterfalls, Top Withens, Withins Heights plus boundary then across the moor to the Alcomden stones, over Middle Moor hill, Delph quarry, over Watersheddles Eastern end Ne then loosely following boundary stones, becoming increasingly boggier but eventually arrived and explored environs stepping on nearest stones. Descent NE over Pennine way (with boulder stating 'PW') continuing over Brown Edge and Keighley Moor to Breck hill bottom. Next hill: Steeton moor.Dazingdale19/03/2017

Space for 2 or possibly even 3 cars on the bend now in what seems to be a proper layby, no signs saying not to park. Muddy walk up following the Pennine Way, fence at the top has been half trampled down so easy to step over.the_adam23/12/2016
With K and R. Path from West shown on OS no longer exists. Best route is pennine way from south although last part is haggy bog with a low fence to climb. Great view.Ashley14/08/2016

Tricky parking on the lane on the south side of the hill - room for one car, well tucked-in, on the sharp bend at SD 977 380. Took Pennine Way NW onto the moor, diverting onto a faint path where the Pennine Way bends NE. Followed this up over a broken fence and so to summit. Returned the same way.Man of Kernow123/11/2014

Parked to SE. The small quarry has parking in front of it on the other side of the road to a few houses - claims to be private. Was very quiet. Good track/path apart from off piste near the end where it is a little bit boggy.destaylor12/07/2012
From Wycoller via old track from Herders. Long slog over rough moorland but worth it for the view.davepeel04/06/2012
Rough walk from Watersheddles Reservoir to Great Nick then easy to the summit. Had some fun on the rocks to the south. Great views to the Dales.Jake99427/05/2012
Walked up via the path from the derelict pub marked on the OS map. Unfortunately there's no sign of it on the ground!! Luckily the ground was frozen solid so it wasn't as bad as it could have been. I won't be using that route again. The descent was similahillhiker19/02/2012
Cowling - Little Wolf Stones via Pennine Way - Maw Stones - Hitching Stone - Wainman's Pinnacle - Lund's Tower - Cowling. Dry and generally bright. Clear air so good long distance views.PaulH15/02/2012

Up from south where grass cutting on the dam wall was happening at 8.30am? tussocks. rain and sun;rain winning. soggy feet in old walsh fell running shoes -toe peeling off.Dont think we detoured to the top when doing the PW in 1984 -probably not.Chris Pearson03/09/2011
