Revisited with a large group on a 18-mile training yomp for the UK Three Peaks 24-hr Challenge, which we're doing in May. Cracking day, awesome views, knackering pace over splendidly varied terrain!

From the SE, the poor car having clawed its way onto the grass just off the rough byway. Lovely hill with fine views and good granite features.

Great views from the top, I was trying to spot other trigs from here but the binoculars were not quite up to the job. The trig locations (ie Rippon Tor) could be seen clearly on this bright autumn day

Approached through forestry track and head-high bracken. Pillar is set on a granite boulder with a thin concrete base. Asphalt plug replacement. No paint but much mildew! Flush bracket has 'raised S'. Good views! Sight holes closed.

Pleasant rocky tor, might have been better without driving rain! Tried Barracott for parking - no good. Parked at entrance to Canna Farm; 2 gates, 2 fields to intake wall. From there 600m to summit. Pillar in good condition; cap missing, asphalt plug; 2 sight holes open. Extensive 360deg views.

Parked on road to SW at SX725821 before walking up lane past Easton Farm cottages. Once past fields took feint path next to fence and headed N through bracken and broom to rocky outcrop them onwards to summit. Lovely late afternoon walk in sunshine. I was wearing shorts and just about got away with it!

Excellent views on a clear day. Wish I'd read the comments below about parking first. I walked from Manaton!

Superb views and more superb views! The trig point is in good condition, though the plug has been filled in, and so have two of the holes along the bottom of the trig. But otherwise there is no visible sign of damage. The S is above the number on the flush bracket.

vgc, asphalt, BSM style FB. trig on low rocky tor, fine summit & view. Much of the gorse of 2002 has been burnt off: fairly easy ascent, but glad I wore boots & thickish trousers.

We parked at Easdon Cottages, having tried the other end of the bridle path to find nowhere to park the car. Followed a sheepy path up to the top. Wonderful views in all directions. Tarmac plug

Finally managed to drag the better half out and what a pleasant walk we had. There are some marvellous all round views from here. We managed to park quite close, by the nearest house to the SE, but it was tricky.

Bad hair day at Easdon Tor!

Took ages to find convenient place to park nearby with easy access. Once climbed up the hill though, views all around were excellent.

awful gorse ascent, fine summit & view - desparately prickly gorse from SW, may be better from S or SE? Fine summit & view
