Pleasant walk up from Slapestone Bridge (NY 8480 1473) - plenty of parking. Some potentially very boggy ground rendered firm by recent low temps. Pillar sits at the hill summit on a sqaure concrete plinth that is deteriorating at one corner. The centre cap is missing and is replaced with an asphalt plug, although it's been painted so is possibly mortar. Rear sight hole open. Extensive panoramic views.

From Slapestone Bridge: track alongside Smeltmill Beck and then followed MOD route, with minor variations, to trig. Warm, sunny day with good visibility.

Parked at the road to tan hill and bravely crossed the road which was like a motorway.By now the wind had picked up had to change into shell jacket over pants hat and gloves to keep warm!Followed more or less the sheepsocks route fine views from the trig which is in vgc with plug walked to the ridge edge and was nearly blown off my feet.

Revisit (many previous visits). Views over the Eden valley are normally very good, but not today - sleet & mist, quite wild. Walked from Banks Gate.

Parked at Tan Hill turn off near Palliard Farm then took shooting track that runs up the valley of Yard Sike to the shooting huts and bridge over the Sike. This track now goes all the way up to a quarry near Black Tewthwaite. It's then only a short distance along the wall to the trig point.

Parked in the layby at NY871129 and went through the tiny subway to the E under the A66. Lots of boggy stretches and barbed wire fences encountered en-route. Visited Maiden Castle which has a commanding view of the western approach to the Stainmore Gap.

Parked on S side of A66 at turn off to Tan Hill and through underpass - a bridleway! A bit further from here but good views of hill and unusual stonewalled sheepfold. Nice views of busy A66!

Followed shooters track to huts then track and wall over Black Tewthwaite to trig, longer but much drier route than the quagmire of the direct way up

Parked at the road junction with the Kaber/Tan Hill Rd and walked up via access land. Couple of fences to climb, steep in places, and some wet bits. But grand view with the setting sun over the Lake Disrict and the moorland tops of the north Pennines and Yorkshire Dales spread out around. Pity about the faint noise of the A66 far below
