Parked in the layby on the A595 immediately before the turning to Whicham church, although plenty of space in the community car park by the church (voluntary donation). Followed the winding track up to Black Combe and it's S Top. Hazy views but I imagine the view down the coast line from the large cairn on the S Top would be impressive. Cloudy and breezy walk.

From Whitbeck parking (SD119839), N along PFPs on E side of intake walls (no waymarkers of any kind) to Holegill, then up RoW NE, then SE, to top. Down S ridge to Seaness, then NW down non-RoW towards Whitbeck - no exit to farm, but a faint FP cuts around E side of copse to emerge at PFP sign 300m SE of phone box.Isbjorn21/01/2023

An ascent of Black Combe from Beckside following AW's route to the summit, returning by the Gray Stones ridge. Bagged the following summits along the way: White Hall Knott, White Combe, Black Combe Trig, Black Combe South Top, Stoupdale Head and Gray Stones. 16km with 770m ascent in 4 hours.

Our plan was to park on the minor road to the north to tackle Black Combe and Whitfell from the same parking spot. We just got through the road from the west by a matter of minutes before the closed it for a few weeks to replace the cattle grid. A reasonable three mile walk in from the north, mainly on feint paths. Blustery but dry day so made use of the shelter. Found one geocache before heading back north on a modified route to make better use of paths.Father Ted25/10/2021
