Richard Marchant walked up Starling Dodd on November 19th, 2022 [from/via/route] Parked at the Forestry Carpark next to Ennerdale Water under Bowness Knot. From the carpark we walked but up the road to the bend & took a path Northeast ward that took us up behind Bowness Knot & Brown How. Basically we followed Rake Beck all the way up to the top of the fell where the gradient got easier & before you knew it we were on Great Bourne. From here we followed the ridge East on to Starling Dodd. We then carried on over Starling Dodd & before the ascent of Reb Pike we eventually headed south down a faint path back down to the bottom of Ennerdale & then followed the forestry track back to the carpark. [with] with my oldest son James [weather] Sunny cold day

Kevin Foster conquered Starling Dodd on June 11th, 2021 [from/via/route] Bowness Knott car park. [with] By myself. [weather] Some clouds. - The broad ridge between Great Borne & Starling Dodd was easily followed by keeping to the right of the fence & cutting across the corner on a well defined path. The top is a small rounded grassy cone with excellent views across the valley towards Steeple & Pillar. After a steep rocky descent down Dodsgill Beck you reach the tranquility of Ennerdale Forest. The last couple of miles beside the River Liza & along Ennerdale Water are delightful. A nice walk.
