Always wanted to do this hill after a (heavily cropped) tv doc about it, was disappointed by the thousands (nearly) of people who had the same idea. Today much better, beautiful light, view to Mickle (?). The wild flanks of the moors contrast with the lush green and not so lush towns of the plain.

Walked up to this one from near by Great Ayton for our traditional Christmas holiday walk. New territory for me, my first trip to the North York Moors, and hopefully not the last! Went onto bag Captain Cook's Monument on near by Easby Moor too in a 6.8 mile circular walk. Good weather if slightly foggy, you could just about make out the sea from the summit of 'The Matterhorn of the North East'

Visited on 8 mile route, taking in also Captain Cook's Monument and the Hanging Stone after setting out from Gribdale. Bit blowy on top, but imagine that is always the case, fantastic views, well worth the short climb on decent tracks. Also we were the only ones on the summit when we reached it, pretty rare feat at this popular spot.

Sadly the trigpoint is covered in Graffiti, but it is in otherwise excellent condition. Back in July I had picked up the nearby LQ cache and drove past Roseberry Topping on my way home to the Midlands, I got home and found that there trigpoint up there, so I decided that on my next visit I would take a walk up, which was today, stunning views from up here and glad the rain kept off.

I’d been stuck in Grosmont due to heavy snow and bad road conditions and was expecting to be there some time - then on Thursday there was a slight thaw and the steep hill out of the village was ploughed and gritted. I got out up the Esk valley road but the road to Pickering was closed due to heavy snowfall. This forced me to return south on the A171 to the north of the moors. My satnav sent me down the A173 and I recognised Roseberry Topping snow covered and glistening under a blue sky. This was an opportunity not to be missed – I could also see the trigpoint. I parked in a layby and walked through the woods to the south – the paths were icy but conditions were not too bad till near the top. Fantastic views over the snow covered moors and over to Teeside. I came down the steep north face through deep soft snow – a great morning out.

I pulled into the car park at the end of Roseberry Lane, looked up at the ‘mini Matterhorn’ that dominated the eastern skyline and though “Oh Bum… Do I have to?” The answer, of course was “Yes”. Having had two fairly tough (for me, anyway) climbs at the previous two trigs, I wasn’t exactly looking forward to it. The walk up the lane was easy… the climb through the wood was steep, very steep and the crude steps didn’t help a great deal. The middle, open section, was just a drag. Then came the final push to the summit. That had me holding on with my hands at times and I was very glad to finally clamber over the lip onto the relatively flat area around the pillar, some 40 minutes after I left the car. There were already a few people up here and looking down, there were more on the way up. They can’t all be trig hunters so what on earth makes them tackle that insane climb… with young kids in tow and some with babies in back-packs. I guess it must be the view from up here…. It is spectacular. Judging by all the names and dates carved into the sandstone rock, there have been thousands up here over the years. After a brief rest, waiting for the kids to get off the pillar (and for my legs to start working again), I took a few photos. The pillar has suffered a bit over the years, the top is well chipped under numerous coats of white paint and the centre plug has been removed. Whatever the resulting hole was filled with has been punched through. Not too much graffiti at the moment, fortunately. Apparently, the hill was pretty much symmetrical up until 1914 when the southern end collapsed. Bet that woke the locals up!

First log on this site. I was up here to bag some geocaches, one being this trig under Ye Ole Survey Monuments, a real cache just about 15 mtrs away, and a new Earthcahe. It was me taking the photos, so I guess I am who tomlevell spotted. Went on to Newton Moor after here. Great photos by the way.

The local beauty spot. Long time since I have bothered to go up here and the last twice was with bikes which is kind of pointless. Recently painted as the only graffiti is marked 09. As we were getting ready to leave someone else was photographing the trig from every angle so I am waiting...

Very busy on Roseberry Topping on this bright but windy Saturday afternoon - literally dozens of couples and families strolling up the various routes to the top. We took the direct route from the roadside car-park, scrambling up the impossibly steep first section before breaking onto the upper open parts. Trigpoint itself is lovely, having been recently repainted. Amazing views all the way across Middlesbrough, Guisborough, and even Hartlepool right in the distance. Very pleasant, and definitely one I'd revisit soon!

Been up once before with me dad, a few years before discovering geocaching/trigpointing. Caught short without the GPSr so bagged the trig and enjoyed the window of fine weather. It was a lot warmer when I was last here. :)

This is a retrospective log, hence the mention of the graffiti, which was extensive when visited. Easy to locate and visit, and without doubt one of the best trig points I have visited. Previously visited 14 Sep 05.

Despite yesterdays shock to the sytem I decided to brave the climb. An easy walk when fit took me about twice what I expected making me realise once again that I possibly should be resting a and keeping to low trigs for a bit. Good but lots of grafitti

On a works trip to Teeside I was visiting a pub one evening in Newton under Rosberry and saw the hill.When the meal was finished I took a stroll to the top and took this photo - took me 18 mins to get up there from the pub, not bad considering what I had just eaten!

Have been here several times, last year on the Cleveland Way, but had not heard of trigpointing then. Revisited in August with a friend who introduced me to geocaching and trigpointing. He took the pictures of us at the point.
