A circular walk from Surrender Bridge following the beck up through the old mine workings then onto the summit via Forefield Rake a desolate scene up here a somewhat lunar-like landscape scarred by hundreds of years of lead mining, located the Trig hiding behind the stone wall then down along the shooters track besides which an abandoned early version of the Moon Buggy can be seen NASA obviously thought the area an ideal testing ground, a short trek along the road brings us to the car, a good six mile outing in the sunshine.

Walked in from Gunnerside using Friarfold Rake and then Forefield Rake, very windy for August, but warm and sunny. The wall beside the trig has recently been rebuilt, possibly because folk climb the wall to visit the trig, which makes me wonder why they didn't build a step stile into it! Several places to climb across easily, one by the old boundary stone. Some slight damage to top of pillar which has been repaired.

The promised snow showers started as we arrived at the sheep fold 500m to SE. It was difficult to see anything with a few minutes, but located trig OK. Return to car was quite tricky - the track disappearing quickly under drifting snow.
