Caroline Winter walked up Three Pikes on July 19th, 2022 [from/via/route] Parked road side by White House, access gate to make direct ascent to Great Stony hill, then fence line to Coldberry end, Trough head moss, Three Pikes, descended to piles of stones, mine shafts & corner of fence over hill to road [with] Solo [weather] 30 degrees, hot & sticky - Two cairns, & clump of grass is highest point. Used GPS to locate. Section after Coldberry end boggy if it had been wet today

Kevin Foster climbed Three Pikes on September 4th, 2018 [from/via/route] du132 from Langdon Beck. [with] Henry. [weather] Cloudy but with plenty of sunny breaks. - Great Stony Hill had the feel of a proper mountain top with great views all round. The track skirting Viewing Hill was very easy walking after what had gone before. The only problem was having to leave it to make a pathless ascent & descent off Viewing Hill itself. Be warned on reaching Cow Green visitor car park the walk is far from over as there is another 4 km of road walking to go to return you back to the starting point at Langdon Beck. Overall a very enjoyable walk though.

Darren Mortimer bagged Three Pikes on May 6th, 2017 [from/via/route] Burnhope Reservoir [with] Dermot Palmer [weather] Overcast with the odd sun & windy on the tops. - If Peat Hags are your thing then this walk ( du114 ) is for you

Mark Davidson hiked Three Pikes on August 8th, 2008 [with] Mike [weather] High white cloud - bit cool for August

Christine Shepherd summited Three Pikes on April 20th, 2016 [from/via/route] Walked from Burnhope Reservoir using walk du 114 [with] On my own [weather] Glorious Spring sunshine with a pleasant breeze. - This peak is hard going from Coldberry End. Although route finding isn't a problem with a fence to follow & a clear cairn to aim for, the going under foot is boggy & peaty with large peat hags to negotiate. Take care.

Ray O'hara conquered Three Pikes on June 24th, 2013 [from/via/route] DU132 [weather] overcast but summit clear

Patrick Rogozinski and Trevor Williams have both walked, climbed & bagged Three Pikes.
