From CP (NY 7995 4322). Followed fenceline S bagging a number of hills to Dead Stones, then due E to here. Pillar badly damaged, mainly the top but many fractures lower down. Centre cap gone, tube plugged; LHS sight hole open. Extensive panoramic views. A nice remote pillar, but suffering from ravages of the weather.

Parked at the northern end of the dam at Burnhope Reservoir. 2hour return journey to this trig point. Wooden sleepers create a track in places.Top of pillar has severe erosion/chipping around the spider. Fracture exists midway across the pillar on south and west facing sides. Conditions were bracing to say the least. The winter sun, linear cloud formations and blue sky added to the atmosphere and enjoyment of this trig point. Plenty of views throughout.

Straightforward walk up from the reservoir. Trees now removed around reservoir and more tracks being built further up the valley. Nice views today but a biting cold wind in the sun. Continued along the fence line and back down the valley.

Walked on from dead stones a great summit with giant currick and enclosed wind shelter with fireplace !Some ones had a right go at trying to remove the spider and the trig is in bad condition resin plug. Great sunny views down weardale from here.

Parking and route as per Clochandighter. The moor was as dry as a bone today which made for an easy ascent. Fine view from the top.

Out with my walking group - The Irregulars, LDWA - on the forty-second of a series of walks that will visit all the 2000' summits in England and Wales. So, the opportunity to bag this one was just too good not to miss. Came to it along the fence line from Burnhope Seat and Dead Stones. Some damage to the top and cracks in the sides. Replacement, plastic type, plug. Lovely viewpoint - could see for ever today.

HISTORY: Pillar completed 12th September 1951 costing 11.16s.0d. Computed as tertiary triangulation station NY86/T35 in 1953. Levelled for height also in 1953.

Top damaged - some through weathering and some perhaps deliberate. Plug replaced by resin cover. Crack extending through sighting hole. Hazy views down Weardale.

Easy walk from NE. Locals very concerned if you park beyond end of the public road. (off topic info) New running gps (Garmin 305) is within 2m Old 'walking' gps (Garmin 60) said 82106 40029 about 5m away.
