From layby at top of Trough Road: Middle Knoll, Whitendale, Wolfhole Crag, Brennand Tarn, Whin's Brow. First time out after lockdown and able to do local walk of more than 1 hour. Ground very dry for this area, mixed cold winds and sun.Lazylizzie16/05/2020
With Colin from Dunsop Bridge on first day of easing of the lock down. Nice walk along river before climbing up the south slope along by the wall.bevandy11413/05/2020

Windy! A nice stroll up by heading round to east first. With Charles, R and B.jenx23/11/2019
Walk down Dunsop valley, up steep bank then onto Baxter fellcjo23/11/2019
Excellent advice from Simon and Co.The quad bike track might be longer but surely easier than a direct assault. Grand all-round views from summit on a warm autumn day.With Oscar.catman12/10/2019
With Catman.oscarrosie12/10/2019
With Bev. Easy route is take the right hand tarmac road up from road from Dunsop (so east side of hill). At the top of the road there is a rough track to a gate on the left. Go through gate and stick with the quad bike track. It doubles back at first but then follows the ridge line all the way to the summit.simon and co13/11/2018
With Jo, from Dunston Bridge. Up road towards Whitendale to boundary wall, then up fell. Returned over Blue Scar using stile mentioned by Hillhiker. Weather; sunny, warm good visibility.amblerbob18/10/2018
Solo from Dunsop Bridge - went on to Burn Fell.Aimless Rambler12/09/2018
From Dunsop Bridge continues to Baxton Fell. 4 he round tripLongwojo02/09/2018
With SDT from parking area at SD6471250509. We ascended from the west & descended east. It would have been easier if we'd ascended & descended from the east. There's a gate & intermittent track to the summit off the road to Whitendale.ADT21/04/2018
From Dunsop Bridge, followed road which forks to the right, found highest point then straight upbardolph23/01/2017
Welcome refreshment stop in village hall at Dunsop Bridge (closest village to centre of Uk as calculated by OS 3 miles NW on moors. Rannulph Fiennes had opened a commemorative 2000th BT phone box here in 1992 to recognise this point). Plod up road with Darren and nice steep S ridge for 8th top of our 9 top circular walk then onto Whins Brow before another night roadside camping in the Trough.Chris Pearson24/07/2016

Cycled from Dunsop Bridge up waterworks road to 653537. Then along footpath to west of hill & straight up. Then on to Baxton Fell.ngthack24/04/2016
A 2.5 mile walk each way from Dunsop Bridge just to reach the hill (it will be of no interest that there is a parking area at the top road junction and the farmers and water board officials don't car if you are in car.) If you bear left here and go though the gate the ascent is severe (and consequently, the drop). Better to turn right and head up the flank whence, after climbing the fence, you will meet a vehicular track to the summit.moorsman22/10/2015
From Whins Brow. Access was surprisingly easy if a little slippery underfoot from the northern side.JohnStoneham03/02/2014
Long walk in from Dunsop Bridge then up a farmer's track to the summit. While on the access land, I found a stile near the summit at N53°59.097' W002°31.729' Probably there to make the gamekeeper's life easier...hillhiker26/04/2013
Circular from Dunsop Bridge.Smudge10/11/2012
Over Whinns Brow to Brennands Farm then round the back and up to the top. Very boggy and a bull in the field!peebs03/09/2012

Walked from Dunsop Bridge. Tarmac track to waterworks then ridge ahead to top.Aye Jimmy09/08/2011
From Dunsop Bridge in sun hat, over river on newly tarred road up to the hill. Onto tussock over a gate in a BWF, steeply uphill to a tussock dome 11.50. Small pile of stones.arranc24/03/2011
Looks like this one is about to become a sub-Hump. Damn just as I am trying to engineer a 2000 Hump total meet.Martin R09/05/2010
Parked close to Puddleducks Cafe then walked up bridleway beside the river Dunsop, on a cold frosty New Year's Day.Dugswell201/01/2009
