|Bagging the OS bolt near the summit. Came up from Old Caberston and descent via Priesthope and the Walker Burn.||BigJ||24/12/2018|
|From Walkerburn out to Priesthope then forest tracks to Kirnie Law and on to Priesthope Hill. From there bit of a trudge out to Windlestraw Law picking up top on return and out over Scawd Law can Cairn Hill. Sun kept trying but never got there.||SS||18/11/2018|
|Ascended ridiculously steep slope to WSW of summit as had no better idea on how to get up thanks to limited sketch map and no (mobile) data. Would not advise unless particularly hardcore! Very overgrown 'path' that seems to go straight up for a very long time.||IainHillHunter||03/02/2018|
|From Early Knowe. I ignored the faint track slanting north and went directly up through the trees - reasonably problem free. All that remains of the mast is a breeze block ruin. Descent was by a muddy path to the south then a serene firebreak dropping to Walkerburn||Colin Crawford||22/09/2017|
|A round of Gate Hope: Stony Knowe, Seathope Law, Maiden Law, Windlestraw Law, Bareback Knowe, Scawd Law, Cairn Hill and Early Knowe. Pleasant walking on a day of swirling cloud and sun. Erno Rubik designed the gates hereabouts: don't even think of opening them with gloved hands. A coil of wire mesh at the corner of the wall at 370384 can be rolled back to gain access to the western slopes of Early Knowe.||Nick Down1||21/05/2017|
