We'd just bagged Round Top and decided we didn't have enough time to walk west to Spy Rigg as planned, but wanted to squeeze one more TP into the day if possible. Although Hopealone was clearly visible the drive to it along public roads looked a very lengthy and circuitous drive...however, the forest tracks, if open, would lead us almost directly to it. So we drove back past The Haining, turned W and continued to Grindon Green, SE to Hindleysteel and SW to just park up below the TP, clearly visible above the felled brash. Good views although it wasn't the clearest of days.

Parked in layby at the foot of the slope then hacked up through the debris of a cleared pine forest. Good view.

Drove up to sign that said no unauthorised vehicles and cycled the last bit. Probably could have driven nearly all the way. As previous people have stated forest has been felled. Reasonable views.

Visited as part of completing various geocache grids, and all four of the Obsessive Cacher Challenge series, in one long day. Dark and drizzly by now. Drove as far as I dared, then up through devastation with head torch for company.

Circular walk from Steel Rigg car park on a pleasant warm day. No views from the trig though. Now onto Winshield Crags.

Trees everywhere! Up here geocaching, no doubt the previous logger was too. Made a mess of crossing a ditch on my way through the forest resulting in a very sore thumb.

Nothing to see from here, surrounded by trees. Centre cap seems to have been removed recently.

Bagged this on a circular walk through the forest from Burn Divot trig. Reached the transmitter then ascended hill from SW and luckily the stands of pines were wide enough for me to walk through. Some trees have fallen in the last few years to make access difficult. Trig covered in moss with no views. A pretty errie place.

walked on forest track to 400m east of aerial, then up hill along lines of trees to the top of the hill and east along ridge. Despite falling darkness and dense treecover (making GPS useless), found trig without difficulty on north edge of ridge above small quarry.

Drove to layby 0.2 miles east of track junction immediately east of Radio Mast. walked 100m further east then straight up the hill. Trig is on the edge of small unplanted area. If you reach fallen trees you have gone too far.
