The pillar's situation wasn't over exciting, on top of wettish moorland; but what a beautiful approach from Calton hamlet through the sylvan Foss Ghyll. A small path leads past little waterfalls and clumps of primroses towards a gate at the corner of a wall. Just 5m of briars to negotiate and then plain sailing to the trig

Walked from Airton village to Calton then along bridleway north towards Weets Top. Leaving the bridleway towards a gate (SD915602) at the northern point of a plantation of new trees. Then southeast towards a small gate in the wall (SD918599) just below the trig point.

Parked in Calton for a nice short walk to the flattish top. Turned right to go through woods, across waterfall and up to a gate. This brought me to the field that the trig was in. From there it was a steady ascent to the top on a warm sunny day with a nice breeze over the tops.

I approached from the bridletrack from Airton, crossed the small beck, which required a climb over barb wire fence. Then headed up from there. Good day for views, and very peaceful.

Ascended from east - finding an easy crossing of the tiny beck and hoofing it up the opposite slope to the summit. Snow almost gone now across the tops in the Dales - good panaorama from the top and an easy walk out from Airton. 1st of 3 today as I headed off for Weets.

Visible but not easily accessible although on open access land. I may have chosen a poor way having used the path up the east side of the waterfall I got brambled to death - not for short wearers. Anyway, having got there the pillar is in good condition. The plug has indented lettering and the views are lovely. I chose to climb some walls to get back to the village.

Hopped the gill and the gated wall as per previous logger. Good views all round to other pillar peaks. It's often the case that looking up from a lower pillar gives you good skyline views of other pillar. Went on the get Weets.

Follwed the bridleway up Calton Moor for 1/4 mile. Turned right to access the hill & trig by jumping the beck to the west of the trig where it passes through the wall at a wooden fenced section. Decent view but the weather hadn't improved much from my earlier visit to Haw Crag trig. No cars, on foot.
