Kevin Foster walked up Meldon Hill (Dufton Fell) on April 30th, 2018 [from/via/route] Knock Fell [with] Henry [weather] Sunny with partial cloud (cold breeze at times) - I started this next section of the walk with some trepidation. The guide book talked about 3 miles of pathless walking along the broad ridge linking Knock Fell to Meldon Hill. But the weather was glorious, I had many hours of daylight remaining and no problems with route finding...or so I thought. The walk started easy enough over grass but got progressively worse and worse. The peat hags became more and more frequent and were the only route finding problem in the end. I would definitely not recommend this route in anything other than dry conditions and clear visibility. Eventually, Meldon Hill got closer and the terrain became firmer under foot as limestone started to appear again. The summit was certainly worth the effort it took to get there. The views all round but especially in the direction of Cow Green reservoir were fantastic. Also, the full length side view of Mickle Fell. The descent was a further two miles of very rough walking through heather and bog but eventually I reached Maize Beck and was able to cross it dry shod before realising I'd overshot the foot bridge by only a couple of hundred yards. After half a mile of delightful walking on grass I reached the wonder that is High Cup Nick, a stunning example of a glaciated valley. the walk along the western rim looking down into the depths and the walk back to Dufton along The Pennine Way in glorious late afternoon sunshine will remain a memory for a long time. A very tough but ultimately satisfying walk.

Darren Mortimer climbed Meldon Hill (Dufton Fell) on April 21st, 2018 [from/via/route] Murton [with] Dermot Palmer [weather] Sunny warm and overcast at times - This walk is best done from the Pennine way and up Rasp Hill in a straight line following the grouse butts. The trig point isn't intact any more which is a shame.

Christine Shepherd bagged Meldon Hill (Dufton Fell) on April 7th, 2017 [from/via/route] Walked from Dufton using part of walk du 144 [with] On my own [weather] Dull but clear enough for good views. - Got a bit disoriented in the peat hags. Easier coming down as I just headed for High Cup Nick. This fell marks a milestone as it was my 500th fell since I started logging them in 2005

Ray O'Hara hiked Meldon Hill on June 26th, 2013 [from/via/route] Tagged onto the end of walk C419, walked up from High Cup Nick [weather] Fine & warm - Once off the beaten track it's a slog across unpleasant ground
