Hindscarth is techy but fun in places, might be a few short carry downs in places. It also gets very greasy so only worth it if it’s dry in my experience. Last time I rode it I did Warnscale Bottom (fleetwith) then back up to Honister then push/carry up to Hindscarth.
Lovely riding from dale head to Hindscarth. The ridge is steep/loose but rideable at the top, easy but skinny in the muddle then steep and, as mentioned, greasy for the descent down from the ridge, with some unrideable (for me) little craggy steps. Lovely scenery and good adventure (IIRC you’ve done a bit in the area, always worth seeking new fun!
We’ve lost a lot of mechs on Hindscarth over the years, mainly in the middle section – boulders and bedrock hidden by the heather. As Tomb mentions, there are four/five short carry-downs towards the end of the ridge. If you’ve got the legs, you can carry up from Little Town to end the day with the descent from Hause Gate to Manesty.
