Bolt still exposed beside cairn, with surrounding rivets. On round from Honister: Grey Knotts - Brandreth - Base Brown - Green Gable - Great Gable - Kirk Fell. Warm, calm and sunny: utterly unseasonal weather.

A quick dash up from the Honister slate mine, nice steep rocky path. 2" domed bolt set in mortar, found under the cairn. Rebuilt cairn to one side leaving the bolt revealed. Also located 3 witness rivets in close proximity, all with exposed shafts but all solid for the time being.

Shaft only. In dark but good torch and pretty sure the head is gone, not easy to find. At highest point of rock slab.

GPS is useful for this one as there are a few outcrops on Grey Knotts, and the trig point isn't at the highest point.

GPS next to bolt.

18th of 21 summits on the 31 mile Cumbrian Traverse http://www.gofar.org.uk/Cumbrian%20Traverse.html which we completed in 8:45 Didn't spot the trig - as suspected, it was hiding. Pity paintermain put the stone back!

Parked at gatesgarth farm did a round of fleetwith pike ,black star,grey knots, brandreth and haystacks.Clear sunny views and the wind was strong and chilly later on. Had to find bolt it was hidden under a stone which was replaced. Lots of rocky tors on this one great views, had a ready meal on the stove round the back sheltering from the wind,the all day breakfast is very tasty!
