Quick detour up the Pike to visit the trig while en route to High Cup and thereafter Cross Fell. Glad I did, splendid viewpoint. the machine gun fire from Warcop range added interest!

Up from public CP in Murton. Foundations exposed, but otherwise looks good, although had a feeling some of the top screed was missing but only cleaned off snow from the centre cap - which is an asphalt plug. Rear sight hole open. Extensive panorama.

I love this fell - locals say at risk of being taken out of access by MOD they've got a petition going on gov.uk. Cloud slides and gets us as we approach High Cup - not for the first time - sun moving in from Scotland as we leave.

Parked in Murton car park and ascended via Sweety Briggs to the summit where the wind was so strong that I could hardly stand up. I descended on the access path to Trondale Gill and High Clints.

From the car park at the foot of the Pike. Followed the usual route up past Murton Crag. Descended SW from the summit along a faint track which leads down to Sweety Briggs. Great view from the top.

Bagged on a 11k round from Murton via the pike and into Scordale. Scordale well worth a visit, in some ways more stunning than High Cup Nick as the incised valley is deeper. Also managed to find some good pieces of amber flourite. Fabulous day.

Staggeringly beautiful view to the west towards todays snow capped lakeland peaks, south & east fine too but north is a little bland. The top of Mickle Fell (Yorkshires highest) just visible. Followed track up from Murton (ROW most, but not all of the way)& where it turns sharply right to head to Burnt Crag we veered left along a visible path to the summit (as shown in the Final Ascent photo). No wind in the village but could hardly stand at the trig. Trig good but base exposed.
