Puhed my bike all the way tothe top; and then dropped back down to where the bridleway turns off. Steady trudge across the moor, never easy going but neither was it exasperating. Going back down on the bike was fun!

Parked near 1st gate on Dunfell Road, continued along road and the bridleway to east of Henrake Hush. From here crossed moor north to Loppyside Mine, the north east to trig. Returned on track/path along east side of Hardhill Hush to bridleway at GR NY 73680 32223 and then back to road (longer but easier). Continued to Knock Fell.

Struck out across moors with P61 from the Pennine Way on way down from Cross Fell at GR NY 7071 3274.Easy walk out on very dry moorland,bit of a slog on way back to join path back to car.Excellent 360 views got a great photo of the Helm Bore which was at it's fiercest on Little Dun Fell you could hardly stand up it must have been 50/60 mph when we hit the summit.We met people on our way up who said be careful up top.Off to Low Abbey for a revisit next.

Walked down from the col between the dun fells not to bad moor very dry but still a fair walk away.Trig has damage to top plug missing excellent views today. Looking back to the cross fell ridge you could see clearly the cloud formations created by the helm bore wind awesome spectacle of nature rough walk back to path up to knock fell col.My luck was really in on the way back as my mobile phone flipped out of my un zipped pocket and ER walking slightly behind just glanced down to check the rough terrain ahead and spotted it!

Approached from ENE via Bellbeaver Rigg - a mixture of paths, tracks & pathless.

Parked in Knock and took the pleasant paths to Cosca Hill where I joined the Pennine Way which I followed as far as the bridleway which leads to Dunfell Hush Mines. (Note to cyclist trig baggers: there's what looks like a sheffield stand here NY716316). Followed the bridleway to the end of the impressively deep and wide hush then struck out across the rough moor to the pillar. Spider exposed and plug missing. There's some recent (dated 2015) graffiti scrawled on the sides. Good view up to the Dun Fells and Cross Fell and across to Teesdale. The Cheviot was also visible. A lonely spot, I can't imagine many people come here more than once. For the return I headed straight up to the ATC radomes on Great Dun Fell and followed the access road back down to Knock.

Top frost damaged, cap gone. Bit of a slog down from col between Great & Little Dun Fells, but not as bad underfoot as I'd feared it might be.

Visited this as part of a 30k circular from Milburn, taking in Hard Hill, Great Dun Fell, Little Dun Fell and Cross Fell - Weather perfect today, views amazing, I took the path over from Great Dun Fell then across open moorland then back via Hard Hill Hush - both equally difficult terrain. Pillar has slight damage to top I assume from frost.

Access from road near Great Dun Fell. A bit of a slog with no path. Top of trig now crumbling away quite badly. Can't believe I'm the first visitor here since 2011 !

Crossed from little dunn fell on the way back from cross fell. Hard slog across boggy land and peat haggs. Views stunning, weather just about perfect. Trig is damaged around the top and the plug is missing.

Only really had plans to do cross fell today but as I was back at Great dun fell early thought I would nip out and back to this one,looked easy enough on the map but failed to find any kind of path and it was hard going all the way,as on cross fell no views but still a great days walking.

Top (screed) crumbling, otherwise vgc. No cap or plug. Stands on firm heathery ridge-end summit, joined to Great Dun by boggy saddle. Visited with Cross Fell and Dufton, from end of public road above Knock - fairly easy approach.

Nice Trig plug missing, walked down from Great Dun Fell, then went on to Meldon Hill this is a hard slog and I would not recommend it, Meldon would be much easier from Cow Green reservoir

Good views south east of Cow Green and the Tees Valley with Great Dun Fell, Little Dun Fell and Cross Fell to the west. Nice walk from Cow Green Reservoir but the last climb over rough moorland was difficult.
