From Cocklawfoot along Clennell Street over the border ridge down to Uswayford then on to the pillar, returned via Yarnspath Law. A bit blowy but blue skies, dry ground and decent paths all the way. The pillar still looking good in it's new coat.

Parked near Barrowburn. North via Uswayford then east to the summit. 1st of 3 trigs today. Blue sky, dry underfoot and plenty of time to absorb this lovely area of the Cheviots with its rolling hills and patchwork plantations.This trig still has a hearty splash of white paint on all sides. Crack exists on top section .Lots of abandoned fence posts nearby.

Parked in the Wedder Leap car park and followed the track via Middle Hill to Uswayford. Then up the bridleway and finally along the fenceline. Tremendous view of the border ridge. Cross Fell and the North Pennines were visible. Misses out on a 10/10 because the untidy fences spoil the ambience somewhat.

*27/08/16 Redid the walk below, adding Hogdon Law for good measure. Views today were STUNNING, perfect air clarity. Accompanied by Andy Withers, new to Trig-Bagging. Have re-scored this hill now we know what can be seen! **05/03/16 A fairly grim day of weather, we added Wether Cairn as a short diversion onto a 6 hour hike that took in Cushat Law and Bloody Bush Edge and back along Salters Road through the top end of the Breamish Valley. All in clag (and snow, and hail, etc) so the views from the Cairn as yet unknown! A re-visit required on a clear day!

Nothing to see here... 05/03/16 - almost white-out conditions...

Excellent views to Lakes, Cross Fell and the coast. But it's a dull wet hill. We did a 20km round from Upper Coquetdale via Kings Seat and Uswayford, then back via Uswayford to the car.

Another wander round the usual circuit, this time on a very windy day. The route from here involved a lot of hopping from one side of the fence to the other as the path had been destroyed by motorbikes.

Parked close to Uswayford farm and then accessed the wide track through the forest before the final wet ascent of the summit (my 250th English 2000 foot-er). Continued across to Cushat Law (my 251st) before descending the north-easterly ridge back to the main track and then making the long walk back to Uswayford (further than we had imagined). A hard day, but only 2 x 2000 ft mountains in England left to visit, one of which I will never ascend (Pillar Rock).

51 weeks since my last visit and this time in far better weather. I didn't realise how good the views were from here. You could see all the Cheviot tops, Simonside and north into Scotland. Trig in very good condition with new paintjob still prominent. The Shivering Stone on the south slope of the hill is a great place to stop by the way as the ground surrounding the trig can be a bit wet.

Newly painted white. No cap or plug. Horizontal crack around trig near top, guess it will someday go the way of S8058. At fence jct, heathery summit, good view. 1st visited 03/01/1998. Revisited to bag the trig, as part of an intricate (and as it turned out, 20 mile) 400m top bagging route from the SW.
