A late winter afternoon and the last of 3 trigs today turned out to be spectacular due to the fantastic sunset. The transmission station is huge and provides an eerie backdrop taking the mark to an 8 for scenery.

Well i never this was a surprise thought I had done all the trigs in the area have not many with left to do in Cumbria but missed this one.Furthermore my young mate who was with me told me it was in the LDNP so it was the last one of the lakes trigs which i thought i had completed a few years ago.Walked up from bottom as a load of families had blocked the road out sledging on the slopes below trig in vgc fine views first pillar since september for me>

Regular route. All gates unlocked so I could have driven but wouldn't have been much quicker with all the stop/start routine; and would have missed the excellent views to Skiddaw and beyond on the descent.

Same parking / route as other visitors. Planned on doing some of the higher peaks today but lots of snow above 500 metres so stuck to the lower hills. Good start.
