Parked in a muddy lay by opposite Colt Crag Reservoir on the A68. This trig is situated on a craggy outcrop commanding some lovely views. The sunset at this time of year was spectacular. A little bit of weathering around the hinges otherwise trig is in good condition.

Route as per everyone below, exceptional air clarity on a clear day following 48 hours of heavy rain gave exceptionally good views.

Parked at field entrance ENE of trig. After a wet period the parking spot would be a muddy quagmire but the mud was set like concrete today. Great view from the trig, with the Nine Nicks of Thirwall and the Northern Pennines including Cross Fell, Dun Fells and Burnhope Seat all visible.

Can be clearly seen of the A68, quick 10 minute walk from a handy off-road parking area next to a broken wooden gate. The rock outcrop should be simple to negotiate even on a wet day.

Nice & easy. Parked in layby then climbed over gate. You can see the trig in the distance. As Stan Toon says, 'easy walk' up to trig. A loverly day so good veiws. Cows in the far distance, but they had left an enormous cow pat, right next to trig so tread carefully.
