A magnificent journey in from Ribblesdale FBM via Pennine Bridleway, Thieves Moss and Moughton Scars before quite fortuitously turning east then making for the high ground to find this pillar immediately infront of me as I reached the brow !! Stunning views across Crummack Dale towards Ingleborough and Simon Fell with the ever present Pen-y-gent visible in the opposite direction across Ribblesdale. The limestone pavement enclosed within its natural ampitheatre at Thieves Moss was simply stunning. Sure the three peaks are a natural draw but don't overlook the scars below them !!

Managed to secure a parking spot in Wharfe, then strolled up the neighbouring slopes and scrambled up the scar. Negotiated a vertigo-inducing ladder stile perched on the edge of the scar! Straightforward walking across the limestone plateau, but low cloud swept in suddenly obscuring what would otherwise have been fabulous views. By the time we got to the trig, there was basically no view at all. Interesting walk, nevertheless... worth a revisit on a clearer day.

Helping on a Three Peaks race so took the opportunity to take some time out to visit this location. Took the Ingleborough path out of Horton and then branched off onto the Austwick path. Once over the ladder stile just followed the wall upward and at a corner/bend in the wall branched off and headed over the limestone pavement to the pillar getting the nearby cache on the way. Lovely viewing point. Pillar in good condition but plug is missing.
