Fellow go4awalkers who have already walked, climbed, summited & bagged Yockenthwaite Moor
Kevin Foster walked up on July 16th, 2017 [from/via/route] Hubberholme (Strans Gill) [with] By myself (and Henry my Labrador) [weather] Hot and Sunny (but with a pleasant cool breeze on the tops). - I took the described route via Strans Gill, which was the recommended and easiest route to the summit of Yockenthwaite Moor, but it was still very tough as there was no clear path that I could see. This shows that relatively few people do this fell and it was obvious why when the trig point came into view. this was probably the longest 1/4 mile walking I've ever done as I tried to thread a route through the peat hags and bogs. The view South made it worth it.......Just!
Tony Rogerson climbed on May 2nd, 2016 [from/via/route] Buckden Hubberholme Yockenthwaite Moor Cray Moss Cray Buckden [with] Caz Floss [weather] Clear and breezy - Beware the peat haggs!
Caroline Winter bagged on August 9th, 2015 [from/via/route] Huberholme, Scar House, Strans Gill, yockenthwaite moor summit, South towards Yockenthwaite hamlet, Dales Way, Huberholme [with] solo [weather] cloudy, light Westerly wind, warm at 19 degrees C - Worried about this Walk; comments of horrendous bog, but locals not phased so decision made to tackle today as rain setting in tomorrow. Navigation easy to reach summit and beacon white trig point stood proud. Northerly wall/fence handrail but water ravines and hidden holes and water courses caused reason for wits and careful footing. Bog leaping to summit. A casual descent caused veering to South West and dropping low too quickly but route traced and delightful walk back along river bank
Darren Mortimer hiked on May 30th, 2015 [from/via/route] Buckden [with] Dermot Palmer [weather] Sunny and a nice breeze - The peat hags are nowhere near as bad as been made out.
