A hard climb and the footpath from the wooden stile is impossible to find! At 776m this is well worth the visit due to incredoble scenery alround. Did it on a cloudy but dry summers day.

This being my 100th logged pillar for Trigpointing, I wanted a good one.Red Screes is my favourite sunset top ,having been up a few times from Kirkstone Inn.Criterion required; a quick ascent, magnificent views from 2500 feet (especially the Scafell/Gable profile on the skyline), beautiful sunset and a hasty descent for well earned refreshment before the light gives up.

Up from Kirkstone pass, liking the well constructed path up the side of the fell. Horrendously cold day but set off in bright sunshine. Hit freezing low patchy cloud at the pillar. Plug missing other wise all metal work intact. Suspect I would of scored higher had it been a clear summit! GPS navigation back to Scandale Pass and return back down the valley to Ambleside.

Parked below in the car park when I realised there was a trig nearby. The gps said trig was 560 metres away so off I went. That's the toughest 560m I've ever done virtually vertical up and down took 1.45 hrs lovely shame the letterbox has gone. Visited the geocache. Lovely

Spectacular 8 mile circular in perfect clear and sunny conditions from Ambleside onto Red Screes and down and up onto Little Hart Crag, back down to Ambleside along what was one of the wettest paths we've walked the Scandale Path, there has been so much rain recently so all the little becks were rivers. The day before walked on Hart Side, Green Side, Stybarrow Dodd, Great Dodd and Clough Head, the day before that we'd done Souther Fell, Bannerdale Crags, Bowscale Fell, Great Mell Fell, Little Mell Fell and Gowbarrow Fell. Great 3 days.

Large free car park to west side of A592 summit at NY401080, Kirkstone Pass. Followed the footpath shown in black on the 1:25K map via NY397083. That path continues to top. It is currently in the process of being upgraded. Stonebuilt secondary station pillar in good condition. Completed in September 1949 costing £18.19s.5d. Spider centre open but centre pipe filled with debris. Flush bracket faces 247° WSW. Vented through sight hole on SE face. 360° panorama lost to low cloud and drizzle on day of visit.

Good scramble up from Kirkstone Pass Inn. This is a proper pillar, tall and robust. What you expect to see on top of a mountain.

Excellent first Lakes walk of 2009. An enjoyably steep climb via Middle Dodd to the trig where the views,on a sunny cloudless day, were just superb.

A first taste of what will hopefully be a proper winter season for a change - bitter winds and sub-zero temps made for a superb frost show on the trig pillar. Came up the incredibly steep Middle Dodd to the finger-numbing cold on the summit. Great spot - all alone but sadly no views with the cloud down. Another milestone: My 150th pillar

Visited on a high level walk from Ambleside to Patterdale, visiting this summit, Little Hart Crag, Dove Crag, Hart Crag and Hartsop above Howe. A long day but a lovely end, with the walk down the ridge to Patterdale in the late afternoon sun. The meal and pint in the White Lion was well earned.

Fabulous location except we couldn't see any views by the time we got here, due to mist, which became torrential rain for the rest of our 7 mile walk from Brothers Water. Never mind, it was great to reach the summit after looking up there from the Kirkstone Pass so many times.

Puffed and panted our way up to this one to do the geocache alongside – the trig was a bonus! Rather more people up here than normal because there was a checkpoint on a mountain relay race. Weather could’ve been better and given us views, but we enjoyed our walk!

vgc, slender stonebuilt pillar. Fine rocky summit, fine view, tantalising glimpses of a fine sunrise thru gaps in the scudding cloud. Crept early out of Patterdale YH, quick bag from Kirkstone Pass, 20 mins waiting for photos, back for breakfast.
