Caroline Winter hiked on October 20th, 2018 [from/via/route] Kidhow gate [with] Shirley [weather] Good views and sunny spells from road and PW, westerly wind, poor visibility on Dodd Fell Hill - Why I found locating Kidhow gate and the route, goodness knows. Attempted 2 days before, but had approximated mileage along road, and parked at end.....too far! Dark now by 6.30pm, so to return another day. Next time, had worked out exact mileage. 3 Peaks challenge from Hawes taking place, so support vehicles confirmed we were at Kidhow gate. The access road had been recently tarmaced-possibly on 8th Oct, and the PW finger post had not been replaced. We set off, confident this time that keeping to the right of the wall, as suggested would lead to the top. After some time, I figured this couldn't be right, as compass showing East, rather than North direction. Worked out, the wall didn't start until over 100 M along the PW bridle path, so back tracked and sneaking over a supporting stone wall where the wire over the top had been lifted, onto the right route (many other boot prints and gap in the wire, so same stupid mistake as me). Once on the right route, it was straight forward to walk to the spot to take a bearing up the moorland to find the trig. Shirley left me to it, as struggling with blisters and steep ascents (first time on the Fells).
Kevin Foster summited on June 26th, 2017 [from/via/route] Gayle [with] By myself [weather] Sunny but a bit breezy - Very impressive 360 degree viewpoint. I was able to pick out most of the Yorkshire Dales 2000ers and could even make out The Howgills, Northern Pennines and The Eastern Lakeland skyline. A good one to start my new walking challenge with.
