Angela Moroney walked up on May 20th, 2021 [from/via/route] road [with] Jane ludders [weather] wind rain
Darren Mortimer climbed on October 8th, 2017 [with] Dermot Palmer
Kevin Foster bagged on March 2nd, 2019 [from/via/route] Cowshill. [with] Henry. [weather] Cloudy, Sunny but with a sharp cold wind that picked up as the day went on. - Today was my final visit to the North Pennines to mop up the two remaining mountains on my list. First - Middlehope Moor - a straightforward ascent up a stony enclosed lane which becomes a distinct grassy track higher up over Burtree Fell. A small pile of stones marks the summit with widespread views all round. The OS trig pillar, which is bizarrely 200 metres further East over very boggy ground, is not really worth the effort to reach it and is in fact a few metres lower than the true summit. The return descent to Cowshill via the track I ascended was very pleasant with great views back down into the Weardale valley.
Mark Davidson hiked on July 21st, 2008 [with] Alone [weather] Rough going with plenty of bog despite good dry weather
Christine Shepherd summited on October 2nd, 2016 [from/via/route] Walked from the county border on the B6295. [with] On my own [weather] Sunny with a chilly breeze on top. - Decided to bag this from the road as the route described on n106 suggests that the ground between Killhope law and this summit is very rough. I am hoping to save Killhope Law as my last English Nuttall and as friends will be joining me I didn't think that they would appreciate the bogs. A pleasant stroll from the road.
Chris Faulkner conquered on February 22nd, 2014 [from/via/route] Via Killhope Law from Allenhead [with] Michelle Chandler [weather] Sunshine, showers, windy and cold - No paths. Boggy, wet lots of heather. Sam had to be pulled out of a bog hole full of water!
Ray O'hara scaled on August 21st, 2012 [from/via/route] N106 [weather] Overcast & windy - Not the most inspiring of summits, quite boggy in places. The route across Stangend Currick being fairly boggy & laborious to traverse
