Set out from Buttermere YHA West along bridleway toward Ennerdale Bridge before climbing steeply South alongside fence. Followed ridge along over Starling Dodd, Red Pike and High Crag before dropping to Scarth Gate Pass and alongside Butteremere. The previous two days were the strongest winds I have ever encountered making it hazardous even around the lakes! Cloud gradually cleared away and a beautiful sunny end to the day.

a great looking pillar with fine views. I did the circular walk as described in the Nuttall book up from the forest car park. The fact that the trig spider is off centre made me think it is a rebuild but maybe not.

Filthy day with high winds and heavy rain. Cloud well down on the hill, should be worth more than a 5. Weather precluded any note taking, just 3 quick photos. Typical Lakeland stone-built pillar, no damage noted other than a little cement screed missing from top; original cap in place, indented lettering. A long round of 10 Wainwrights and Birketts but only 1 trig.

Approached from Ennerdale parked in small lay-by next to Rake Beck and simply followed the Beck up passing behind Bowness Knot & Brown How where you can see a stone built Fox Trap the path gets Quite steep from here but you hardly notice as the path picks it way up through the ferns and heather passing some splendid water falls, unfortunately the clouds came in and robbed me of the views from the top visibility was so bad I had to abandon my plan to walk the ridge to Stile, The spider seems well off centre and its odd seeing a Cumbrian Trig built with symmetrical stone
