Altitude 804m Parked at SD 28910 96992 and had a most pleasant walk up without seeing a soul. Walked into the cloud base at around 650m and from there no views. Industrial archaeology looks fascinating - will need to do some research.

Just checking through my YSM and TP photos and discovered that I had omitted to log this on the TP site! What an oversight of what was a great achievement of mine as I had driven up from home in Devon and booked in to the excellent Coppermines Youth Hostel, and then on my own set off to get to the top of Coniston Old Man on my very first visit to the Lake District several years ago [sorry cannot remember when]. It was a glorious day and several people were about aiming in the same direction so navigation wasnt a problem. The trig point as far as I can remember was fine...and I can remember meeting a man there who pointed out that we could see Blackpool from there! I was so enjoying myself that I forgot to take a photo of the trig point, but did take one of the nearby shelter which I am not used to seeing on the heights of Dartmoor Tors back at home!

Fine summit with steep crags to NE and a great view. Yesterday 56mm of rain, today blue skies and Springlike. This was the LDWA Hillwalkers Register weekend and my last-but-7th English trig - a good excuse for a bottle of Glen Moray :-) My remaining 7 have Issues... 4 of us connoisseurs carried on around the ridge to White Maiden and White Pike then descended via Birkett and Synge country to Torver.

Visited today on the Coniston Country Fair Fell Race (6 miles/2400 ft). As I am not an elite runner I can afford to take a few seconds to photograph the trig. The summit cairn is the race checkpoint so there was no-one cluttering up the trig which lies a few yards away. My first time here was the Coniston Fell Race (9 miles/3500 ft) on 2nd May 1987 in blizzard conditions. Its a grand spot on such a lovely summers day. Revisited during Coniston Fell Race on 3rd May 2008 in sunny, clear conditions and quietly celebrated the 21 intervening years.

What a day! A superb weather for January. Got sunburnt doing this one! Could see for miles at the summit. There is something that looks like a benchmark on a rock at the base of the cairn. Continued around the ridge ending up at Wetherlam at 4.00 looking for the trig marked on the OS Explorer map. Do not be fooled, it is a phantom trig, one of a few in the Lakes on these maps. There is and never has been trig on Wetherlam apparently. That is twice in one month I have fallen for the phantom trigs of the Lakes. Better homework next time Father Ted.

Stone-built pillar. Visited during a long Wainwright bagging walk from Coniston. Finished off with a couple of beers by the fireside in the Black Bull - does it get any better!

Approached from west via Seathwaite Tarn. Visited to record FB number. The pillar was completed in June 1949 costing 31.2s.0d. In 1950 this marker was computed as secondary station SD47/11 in the Barrow-in-Furness block. Flush bracket S5473 was levelled for height also in 1950. This trig point was last maintained by the OS in August 1977. Pillar is built with local stone. The spider centre is plugged with the usual coarse substance suggesting that the original OSTS lettered cap is long gone. The pillar photograph was taken by my mother while I stood at the pillar. Bagged and photographed 9/09/1990, GRP.

Our very first peak in the Lake District. We were here for a fortnight and it didn't rain once.

via Boo Tarn and the quarry. 4" snow and a lot of people about. Cairn right on the edge. Views of Coniston Water, yachts and caravans. Back via Dow Grag - an even finer spot.
