Caroline Winter walked up on July 25th, 2021 [from/via/route] Langleeford, Hedgehope Hill, Comb Fell, Cairn hill, The Cheviot [with] Becky & Andy [weather] Fog 50 M visibity, drizzle, warm & light breeze - Forecast inaccurate today, expecting good views by 1 pm, but not clear until 2.30pm, so had some views on descent. Busiest section of walk, with people walking up to do The Cheviot

Ginny Tyler climbed on August 5th, 2020 [from/via/route] Car Park [with] Enzo [weather] Pleasant - Chilly at the Summit

Angela Haworth bagged on October 29th, 2001 [with] Alone [weather] Dry

Kevin Foster summited on February 11th, 2018 [from/via/route] Middleton Hall [with] By myself [weather] Full winter conditions (snow & ice underfoot). Clear blue skies. - My car (not 4x4) was unable to get up the steep road to Langleeford because of ice therefore I had to start at the road junction near North Middleton which substantially increased the walk by 7 miles. A long walk in followed by a very tough climb (sinking into snow drifts the length of my legs!), I finally made the summit at just after 2pm. I figured given the conditions, the long walk back to the car & the short daylight hours I should end the walk here & return the way I'd come. I will have to visit these hills again another day to complete the Harthope Burn circuit including Comb Fell & Hedgehope Hill.
