Parked at end of public road in Knock and walked up road, past great dun fell, and over the dips to the top. Amazing place. Road was covered in snow and ice and huge snow drifts and deep snow over the tops. Tough uphill climb and a long trek, but worth it. Icy cold wind but blue skies overhead. Good to be at the highest point of the Pennine Way.

Pennine Way Day 7 of 17. Cross Fell, King of the Pennines, a real monster of a fell. Seriously, you need to pick a clear day for this one as I had today. The view made me feel as if I was in an aeroplane high above the Eden Valley. 360 views. A new shelter was being built by some wallers today, so the strange noise of their radio could be heard on the summit. You can see this fell from as far and wide as Fountains Fell to the Cheviot.

After a real slog to the summit of Cross Fell in beautiful weather, it was a relief to see the Trig Point sat next tothe cross shaped wind shelter. Glad I left when I did though, as the weather turned nasty, and completly engulfed the mountain by the time I was back in Kirkland. This can be a dangerous peak to scale for these reasons, as it is prone to sudden hill fog. Awesome hike though!!

A fabulous day with bright, but hazy sunshine and little wind. Unfortunately, probably because of the dreaded volcanic ash, the views were restricted. But this was still a good day to visit this upland wilderness. Came up from Blencarn via Wildboar Scar and descended by the corpse road to Kirkland, but not before a detour to visit Greg's Hut which is still in good condition.

Very warm- temp must have been 21c, and no wind (but also very poor visibility).

Surprisingly easy climb from Blencarn, if lengthy, to reach an almost 3,000 footer. Worth it though as the view was fantastic. A bright, sunny day with little breeze and very clear atmosphere.

Walked up from Blencarn in horribly foggy weather, only cleared when we headed down, turned out to be my highest point of 2005.

Certainly very windy up here today. Last time in 2002 was hot, sunny and calm with loads of wasps around the trig point so didn't approach too close then.

Retro log, Day 6 of Pennine Way heading South. set out out from Alston on a marvellous sunny Sunday morning heading for Dufton. Slightly overcast at the summit but visibility ok, views remarkable. pre trig days so only the photo of the trig captured.

A fairly easy climb up here, in the company of a singing Christian! A memorable top; if you visit try and make time to visit Greg's hut on the way down.

Also visited during a Pennine Way trip in July 1978. Great weather on both visits, although no views today.. Things picked up on the grand plateau out to Hartside.

Brilliant sunshine on snowy landscape. No snow goggles meant touch of snow blindness next day - very painful!

Very hot and sunny, so hot that I can't be bothered to chase the big wasp away. We run out of water on the Pennine Way down to Garrigill and arrive there rather thirsty. Luckily its my birthday tomorrow and a short rest day.

Reterolog from the Pennine Way. Fairly grim day. Improving though with occasional glimpses of the Lake District, the fells to the south and the way to the east. Last of the bogginess and high watershed peaks for a while as the South Tyne valley beckons.
