Ascended from the south west gate. Walked round the fenced enclosure, where there are three gates. Only the east gate is viable in summer conditions as the undergrowth inside is high. This gate is only usable at the moment because the hinge is broken. There is a track from there through a pheasant enclosure and on to the summit. Might be best to avoid in the shooting season!JohnW15/06/2024
From A5074 to Sourh west. Gate here gives access to large field with fenced enclosure around summit. The gate to this is on the East Side.mart079724/01/2024
To save further arguments, the gate is at SD 40474 946697. Deceptively, it has a padlock on it, however the gate is unattached at t'other end. OK, happy?Martin R03/01/2024
Parked at the very start of the B5360 where it leaves the main road. Room available ifor 4/5 cars. Follow the main road SE for about 100 m to where there is access to the field through a gate. Here I digress from everyone else. The access gate to the pens is definately on the eastern side of them, There is no gate in the SW corner. Next visitor please confirm whether I am the only mad (or sane) person to have discovered this.moorsman21/09/2022
Gate was unlocked in SW corner of deer enclosuretrimarc209/10/2021
Via unlocked SW gate. Gorgeous views from outside fence boundary. 80 minutes round trip from Bowness on a sunny lockdown dayFionalevey19/03/2021
Became obvious that previous advise was wrong as there is no gate on SW corner of deer fence. 3 gates, East - locked, South - Locked but NW corner was unlocked - Phew !conanharrod31/01/2021
A short boxing day saunter using the footpath from Lindeth. Can I clarify, go to far South West corner of the deer fence the gate here is not padlocked and you can open it and no need to climb the fence. You can walk right round the enclosure to find this gate Easy so don't damage the fence.nickywood126/12/2020

From South, no issues in the mist other than finding the top and way back againnordicstar28/09/2016
From field gate to S, on A5074. Sheep pasture initially then over a high deer-type fence, but think it's for pheasants - saw the feeders but no birds. Nice views.jonglew26/02/2016
Fenced top, unwelcoming feel !peebs23/11/2015
Headed up S side of wall from E - parked near junction.jimbloomer25/09/2015
From ESE by roundabout route, gate into enclosure, descended S and back along road.RHW18/04/2015
Via gate from south-west. Summit copse surrounded by high fence, but fortunately secluded. Another enclosure inside but not in way of reaching grassy knoll on top.Aye Jimmy07/03/2015
6.15 am on 'summit'. Faced with an 8 hour drive home I was keen to maintain the tradition of climbing something on New Year's day (last year had been a bit bigger- Kilimanjaro) so tip-toed out of my brother's house in Bowness at 5.20 am - encouraged by the rain having stopped. Deserted road walk for 2 miles -street lit for half way. In the dark, chose a direct line up through fields from fpath to SE. Lots of sheep's eyes glinting back off my torch beam. then mist dropped and drizzle. Found a gate into summit wood and a way through the trees to rocky slab summit. 6.15 am -an early summit. Took more direct track down to west to road. Abandoned idea of adding extra peaks as rain got stronger and torch beam got fainter.Road walk back to Bowness.Chris Pearson01/01/2015
