On own. From small car park near Commondale towards North Ings Farm then cut across moor onto track crossing Commondale Moor and North Ings Moor to summit hp. Saw no-one throughout walk. Several areas with controlled heather burning which detracted from visit.Beeliner18/10/2022
Straightforward ascent on track from NZ6475 0984. Most of my recent walking on the North York Moors has not actually been on moorland so this made a change.Wycombe Wanderer16/10/2022
From Guisborough. Watching the Guisborough 3 Tops fell race (with a slight diversion).Geoff Briggs30/04/2022
Parking at roadside by the track leading to North Ings. You can follow the track up with a detour around North Ings to pick the (good) track up again. Easier than my route up from Commondalesimon and co27/01/2022
Circuit via tracks west of Commondale. Up past the war memorial down past the cairns and field system. Heather burning annoyingly in progress to increase CO2 emissions and facilitate toffs' killing grouse for fun.Nick Canute21/01/2022

Steady walk form Commondale amongst the grouseMark Sims03/09/2021
Found a space to park off the road just N of Wayworth Farm. Ran up the track and explored all the possible high points. Returned by following the track at the side of North Ings Slack past the war memorial and across Whiteley Beck just below the farm using a FB not marked on the OS map. The path shown on the map heading back to the car from there wasn't really present on the ground.Wheelsy27/08/2021

Along track to and around North Ings from Commondale. All was going swimmingly until a sudden thunder storm soaked us to our underwear near the summit. Ran quickly across all likely and described tops between lightening strikes before legging it back to the camper for a change of clothes and hot tea.summitter04/07/2021

4 mile out-and-back from road to the south, then long but fairly straight-forward route on good track all the way to summit, wild moorland views in all directions, no one around.

From Enfield Chase through the maze of paths in Guisborough Woods and onto open Moorland.rhalstead27/09/2020
While on the top as given by the hill-bagging website and looking round at the other possibilities, a man in an estate vehicle stopped and tried to help me as I appeared lost. That was kind of him.Alan Moore01/09/2020
