Took the 'standard' route from the north. Although today that should read 'BOG standard' route...Good views despite a snowy squall greeting us as we reached the TP.

Approached from N over tussocky field. Pillar on S side of wall; plug missing; the crack seems no worse. Wasn't expecting to see Cross Fell from here.

Parked on soft verge at the gate near the 389m spot height and followed a faint track to the pillar. Good panoramic view.

A diversion today from our normal walk over the moors took us past the Trig Point. Hard, icy and frosty underfoot.

Accessible and visible although it means a trudge over tussocky wet moorland to get there. Perched on high point beside wall. Pillar has a crack that goes all the way round but not too detrimental to its condition. Plug missing. Excellent view point.
