"Sunday 9th September 2018. An ascent of King’s How 392m/66m and Brund Fell 416m/38m on Grange Fell, Central Fells, Lake District, England, from Borrowdale. 7.9km, with 525m of ascent. 4 hours 0mins. I had set 9th September as the date when I planned to ascend my 2000th hill in the British list of Tumps (on which see at http://www.hill-bagging.co.uk/Tumps.php?ct=SEWM), thereby gaining entry to the Relative Hills Society’s (RHSoc) TumpHof (on which, see at http://www.rhb.org.uk/tumps/). As my 2000th Tump, I chose King’s How, one of the tops on the craggy plateau that sits between Borr" - King's How—Grange Fell, marktrengove2, Sep 9, 2018
"Last Day of a short break in the area, so small walk before driving home. From the Car park at Muncaster castle carpark, we walked up the A595 a short distance, then up a bridleway that ascended steadily past fields, a small lake and a small woodland. Then out onto the open hillside, where we walked up to the rocky summit which had a cairn. By the summit, some amateur radio enthusiasts had erected 2 radio masts and were talking to people all over the world. Good views all around of the coast and Lake District peaks. We then walked on to the 2nd summit, which by our GPS and altimeter was a metr" - Muncaster Fell, davidlong, Sep 7, 2018
"Returned to this pleasant seaside peak after several years. Started from the car park at Whicham church and walked up the tarmac lane to a farm, then up onto the open hillside on a bridleway alongside Moor Gill that steadily ascends over Townend Knotts at 300m and up to the summit. The weather was pleasant in the valley, but a strong cold gale force wind, straight off the sea was blowing at over 400m, which meant extra layers. Good views on the ascent and on the summit of the coastal plain, seascape and the Lake District peaks. It was clear enough to see the Isle of Man out to sea. After lunch" - Black Combe, davidlong, Sep 6, 2018

" We started our walk from Whicham Church on a bright sunny day. Once we were above 400m a v strong cold wind was blowing from the sea, which meant extra layers. South Top is a minor summit 200m S of the summit of Black Combe, separated by a small depression and v small tarn. The summit has a number of cairns and enjoys good seascape and Furness peninsula and Cumbrian coast views, but the views to many of the Lake District hills are hindered by the slightly higher main peak of Black Combe. We walked over South summit going to and from Black Combe and Stoupdale Head." - Black Combe South Top, davidlong, Sep 6, 2018
