Last peak on a circuit from Grasmere: Steel Fell, Calf Crag, Gibson Knott, Helm Crag. Lots of people out on the fells on a fine day.

Didn't see the bolt on the summit, but then I wasn't particularly looking for it. Onto the Old Man of Coniston to bag a proper trig.

I found this one relatively easy thanks to photos by other logs.

The Helm bolt. Showing proximity to 'The Howitzer'.

C2C#6: found it this time! Another good day for walking, with great views all round. Also noted High Raise trig en route, but energy rather lacking so unreachable but visible!

frost and mist. easily found, bolt is a little battered. i've been up here several times before and more than likely walked over the top of the bolt.

Visited on excellent walk of the Greendale Round. Marked on my (somewhat old) OS 1:25k, but no evidence of a trig point / couldn't find bolt. However, the fantastic views were well worth the climb up from Grasmere (even without climbing the Howitzer!).

Visited doing the Greenburn round walk Helmside Helm Crag Gibson Knott Calf Crag Steel Fell Great ridge walk with wonderful views

Its not up here, The Howitzer the summit of Helm Crag, I believe its the only Wainwright he didnít conquer, maybe he stood on the Bolt and thought thatíll do ?

A stud (more of a metal mushroom really), 50 paces east of the Howitzer, take a direct line from the Howitzer to the Lion and Calf. Set in a small patch of concrete within some rocks. I went looking for this, plus another on Brant Fell because my OS Explorer map has both of them down as trig points. Could not find anything likely on Brant Fells but am glad to finally contribute a new location to this site!
