Starting in the field at the bottom of the fell where Scabbate Gate lane crosses Dowber Gill Beck. The initial ascent is on grass following track and path through the fields uphill to the cottage at Hag Dyke. Thence through the gate to the fell and the terrain changes dramatically. First a rocky scramble over rough ground, followed by a short stretch of peat and bog with then a final steep ascent over rocky ground. At this point round the cairn then its anyway back to the start, either straight across the heather or back down the path. Juniors will set off at the same time as Seniors, but turn before the top.
