I've scored 9/10 for the fantastic views (sunny day).A nice walk up, from Beckfoot Bridge and returning the same way.

Bolt was hidden again. I rearranged the cairn a bit. Within a few cm of highest point of outcrop. From Miterdale car park - visited Illgill Head first - lovely circuit.

Well done Dal a good find. I did a circular walk from Boot up Boot Bank passing several old dwellings and a deep mine shaft then onto Bleatarn Hill where thanks to Dal I found the Bolt then descending SW visiting the three nearby Tarns, Bleatarn was very still today perfectly reflecting the surrounding fells I then descended to Beckfoot and followed the railway back to Boot, Excellent fell very enjoyable walk

Station T008 in Secondary Block NY11. Bolt levelled at 289.864m. I have respected the OS name, but do not be deceived it is on Bleatarn Hill above Boot. Delightful walk - I started at Beckfoot Station. This is the first time I have had to dismantle the summit cairn to find the Bolt. I re-built the cairn, with the Bolt visible from the east side.
