|Entered the forest road system at NY 6614 8645 (no gate). Drove down to NY 6266 8253. Walked the 500m curving fire break, then took a direct line over rough heather moorland. Wandered over to Humble Hill on the way back as OS give it as only 1m lower. Just under 2 hr round trip.||jonglew||02/11/2019|
|From Churnsike. Final mile pathless after leaving track a little west of the quarry. First 800m hard going, then not too bad. Return same way.||mae||08/07/2017|
|Good parking by bridge at Churnsike. Bike to quarry then 1.5km over the tall heather.||jimbloomer||03/07/2017|
|Forest road from Calvert Trust, parked at NY 6305.8312. Three firebreaks due S reach moor at 6307.8200 then diagonally SE to trig, grough going!||Aye Jimmy||30/09/2016|
|From the south in the mist. Glad to have dog for company.||peebs||24/11/2014|
|Parked at Churnsike Lodge, verge side parking available at the end of the public road. Fast walk along well maintained forest tracks to the old quarry at 649798 then the fun starts. No semblance of any tracks whatsoever to the summit. Just grit your teeth and head north.
In a way it makes sense to take in Sighty Crags as well. Although a 2.5 mile further slog through virgin, strength sapping heather and bog, you can return to Churnsike on a good forestry road if you head south east to the firebreak just west of Jamie's Lodge (623798). A 12 mile round trip .... 7 miles on tracks, 5 miles of hell!||moorsman||19/08/2013|
|Probably the hardest work I've ever expended to climb a sub 500m hill. Cycled from Calvert Trust car park through fresh snow to firebreak north of trig. Followed break straight up hill (second half not shown on map and headed for Long Sal currick which is visible well before trig appears. Hard work through peat hagscovered in drfiting snow. With my dad.||andy||13/03/2013|
