Caroline Winter walked up Murton Fell on August 25th, 2021 [from/via/route] Dufton, Murton Fell, High Cup Nick, return along U valley [with] Becky [weather] Warm - Took some time to locate top. Paced from water south & found amongst bog

Kevin Foster climbed Murton Fell on August 5th, 2017 [from/via/route] Linear route (two cars) from lay-by on B6276 near Grains of the Beck, Lunedale valley to Murton village (car park at north end of village), Eden valley Cumbria [with] Me and Bruce [weather] Sunny, with heavy showers until late afternoon then just sunny. - What can I say about Murton Fell? The top of the fell is very flat & extremely boggy in places & the actual 'summit' itself was difficult to locate. My mate Bruce didn't enjoy it & actually questioned my sanity. He probably had a point. We took a pathless more or less direct line route off Little Fell to the head of the Scordale valley. The views were great but the distinct path marked on the OS map running up the valley & over the pass was non-existent. From here we ascended directly up the fell side following what I assumed were tank tracks to the table flat summit. Unfortunately we were southeast of the actual summit cairn by some way. Using the map to take a grid reference, I used my OS locate app on my phone to pinpoint first the tarn & then the tiny summit cairn to the northeast of the tarn but unfortunately this meant walking over over some very rough ground indeed. I can't honestly say that clambering through peat hags was that enjoyable but we made it to the tarn & then the summit eventually. In complete contrast, the descent off Murton Fell via Burnt Crags & then on a delightful track contouring the side of Murton Pike back to Murton village was delightful with stunning views South throughout. I haven't been put off 'doing the Nuttalls' but now realise what a tough challenge I've let myself in for. I would love to come back one day to reverse the walk up the side of Murton Fell to High Cup Nick & come back via High Cup Gill. The top of the fell is best avoided though unless you have to bag it.

Mark Davidson bagged Murton Fell on November 12th, 2008 [with] Mike [weather] Lovely & sunny for November - First 'wild camp' in the van

Chris Faulkner hiked Murton Fell on April 3rd, 2016 [from/via/route] Hilton via Scoredale Gorge [with] Chelle [weather] Fine - At Last !!

Darren Mortimer summited Murton Fell on March 20th, 2016 [from/via/route] Dufton [with] Dermot Palmer [weather] Sunny

Christine Shepherd conquered Murton Fell on August 2nd, 2013 [from/via/route] Walked from Dufton using walk c438 [with] On my own [weather] Fine but a bit overcast. Very windy on High Cup Nick. - The summit of Murton Fell isn't easy to find. The 'walk across the grass' is actually across peat bogs, & ankle turning terrain. A great walk over High cup Nick with amazing views does make up for it though.

Ray O'hara scaled Murton Fell on June 26th, 2013 [from/via/route] tagged onto C419 [weather] fine & warm - It was a bit boggy on the top, but I've known worse. Nice views across to Mickle Fell & Little Fell
