Kevin Foster walked up on October 2nd, 2018 [from/via/route] Walk du152 from Burnhope reservoir. [with] Henry. [weather] sunny but very windy. - Great Stony Hill was the first objective of the day and was reached by a steady climb on a stony track up to Coldberry End. Thankfully I had already bagged Three Pikes which looked a long way there and back from where I was standing. After sheltering out of the wind for a quick lunch stop I continued along the ridge fence initially towards Scaud Hill. I diverted below Scaud Hill to investigate the disused bell pits and other extensive evidence of the former mining activity around here which was quite interesting. I regained the ridge fence line near the top of Harwood common and then threaded my way through the peat hags and groughs to the flat top of Burnhope Seat with its trig point mounted on a concrete plinth. The ground about 250 yards due West from the trig point, which was marked by a small cairn, did seem slightly higher but it is only a matter of inches. I then followed the ridge fence line again to a substantial col before a slight rise to the grassy knoll of Dead Stones. Apart from the tall well built cairn this top is notable for a roofed wind shelter complete with a bench and a fireplace to burn the stack of old fence posts I found inside. The ridge descends gradually through more hags and groughs to the fine top (but not a Nuttall) of Highwatch Currack which gave possibly the best view of the day along upper Weardale. Overall a very enjoyable walk.

Darren Mortimer climbed on May 6th, 2017 [from/via/route] Burnhope Reservoir [with] Dermot Palmer [weather] Overcast with the odd sun and windy on the tops. - If Peat Hags are your thing then this walk ( du114 ) is for you

Christine Shepherd bagged on April 20th, 2016 [from/via/route] Walked from Burnhope reservoir using walk du114 [with] On my own [weather] Sunny with a lovely breeze. - Quite a lot of peat groughs on the way to this summit. The cairn is quite magnificent and the shelter nearby could prove useful if the weather turned nasty.

Ray O'Hara hiked on February 6th, 2013 [from/via/route] B6277 - Burnhope Seat - Dead Stones - Burnhope Seat - B6277 [weather] Deep lying snow, overcast, but at all times the cloud remained above the summits - The col between Burnhope Seat & Dead Stones would normally have been very boggy, but of course it was frozen over when I visited making it much easier to traverse. Nice stone shelter near the summit for a rest out of the wind.
