Got permission to park at Crabtree before walking up. Angled up from bridleway to the west. Gate/hurdle in wall opposite pillar meant no wall climbing. Alarm at the comms station started going off just as I arrived, but not sure I was responsible! A cracking 360 viewpoint.

Followed a partly concreted service track that starts off near Middle Row. A murky day had partly cleared out but the top was defiantly still in the mist,with no view. Sharing the top were a group of communications masts (suggested name for the plural could be a frequency of masts)

Came up the track via Pike Haw. Tried to ask if this was OK at Middle Row Farm but no one at home. Lovely view point. Pillar still in good condition although it has a replacement composite type plug.

Parked opposite bridleway west of Tarnhouse Tarn. Followed bridleway then swung left over hill with large leaning stone on its summit,dont be fooled by this(like i was) as from a distance it looks like the trig. Trig lies slightly SE of here,near the transmitter mast.

Parked passed junction beside Tarnhouse Tarn then back up road to access via bridleway. Then visited standing stone before summit trig & other grassy tops visited as appeared of similar height. Surrounding roads very narrow.

Parked to the north near a sheepfold. Shane decided to stay in the car as it was raining so I 'wandered lonely as a cloud' south west along the bridle path. After a stone wall the trig is on the second summit to the south east, after a stone wall. There is now a mast and large stone building nearby, which initially confused me as they aren't on my 1998 Outdoor Leisure. Nice hill, but no views because of the mist. Tarmac plug.
