Revisit. Route from Hartside not too boggy at present. Plug missing. Intermittent sunshine with cloud shadows drifting over the fells.

Set off in low cloud and drizzle from the quarry car park all the way to the pillar and back. Would be good views on a clear day. Still quite boggy in places despite recent low rainfall.

Bit of a murky day with hazy views to the Lakes. The promised heat wave has yet to arrive in the North Pennines so pleased we hadn't put on shorts and had to resort to windshirts as well. Had intended carrying on to Grey Nag but as we had been there a couple of months ago in glorious March sunshine couldn't be bothered today as it was still fairly boggy underfoot.

Plug missing, rear sighting hole open. At junction of fences, boggy approach, with strands of rusty, boot-snagging wire embedded in the ground.

Walked here from Renwick via Thack Moor and the going from the latter surprisingly good with ladder stiles at walls and easy to follow. the walk after Hartside Height to the cafe was much boggier.

An easy walk up from Hartside on a day offering excellent views. The only complaint - very soggy underfoot!

Cheated by doing this from Hartside Summit having earlier done Grey Nag and Tom Smiths Stone Top from Gilderdale Bridge on A689. It was too wet underfoot to do all three Nuttall tops from one location.

Circuit from Hartside to Grey Nag/Kirkhaugh/Alston with the cloud at 450m and lots of snow on the ground. Good path as far as Black Fell but patchy to non existent beyond that.

Walked from car park just above and opposite Hartside cafe access fell through gate and followed fence/wall to the trig,the wall gave good shelter from a strong wind,unfortunately the summit you can see for most of the walk is not where the Trig is,its another half mile over boggy ground,even on a dull day good views all round and got some good pics

I parked at the Hartside Cafe and trudged up here through the boggy peat. Worse was to come as I headed north to the next trig - deep peaty fissures awaited me!

Very retrospective log. I am not sure of the day but the month and year are correct. Trig condition not noted. Hitched to Hallbankgate and walked up fairly directly to Cold fell. Then along the ridge to Great Blacklaw, Three Pikes, Croglin Fell, Tom Smiths stone, Blackfell and then Hartside pass. Then hitched home. Very boggy but not a soul on the hill!

Above date is most recent of three visits, first being made on 10/04/1983. On 22/08/1983 it had just received a fresh coat of whitewash, presumably as part of the resurvey of that time.
