After numerous visits over the years i've finally admitted defeat on this one.

been past here on several occasions over the years. The GR coincides with the wall of the wind shelter. No inclination to dismantle the structure in todays appalling weather

Not so much 'Couldn't find it' as 'Forgot to look for it'. Other logs suggest I would have struggled to find the surface block anyway. Walked up from Glenridding over St Sunday Crag and returned via Hart Crag and Hartsop above How. Hot and sunny day with excellent views all around. Revisited on 16/7/16.

The coords took me to an area at the end of a windshelter, not the summit itself. I looked around at all the stones in the area but didn't find anything, not even something with an OS mark on it mentioned earlier. I think some walkers wondered what I was doing prodding and lifting the occasional rocks.

Lovely day walking the Fairfield Horseshoe, had to wait for the clouds to clear on the big two Fairfield and Hart Crag but it cleared in the end revealing great views, couldn't see sign of anything trig-like on Fairfield but the summit is big.

my first outing on whaf would be a successful completion of all aws in one calendar year. clockwise horseshoe starting with nabs fell and collecting 9 fells by the end. Fairfield summit was quite busy. frosty and chilly..so no digging around.

Station NY11/T019. Block, levelled with the height of 872.032m - described as Ht to Bolt in Block. Computed 1952, maintained 1984. I did not find the Bolt - I did not have long to look. All I found was a stone with what appeared to be an OS arrow on it by the side of the shelter. Looking at OldMaps - the 1978 map shows the shelter but no trig. The 1956 map shows the trig, but no shelter, and is difficult to compare (the shading is completely different). The 1919 and earlier maps show a trig (presumably an earlier mark) plus a bench mark. I wonder if what I found is a remnant of that. Lovely spot - mist was intermittent on the way up the west side of the horseshoe - the mist was thick on the east side going down. I trust a future visitor will find the bolt, there must be a good chance it survives.

OS remnant of an earlier mark?

A retrospective bag of my 30th Wainwright, a week before this year's annual Cumbria trip happens on 17 Mar 2013. Seems the block is now lost to time so decided to bag it as unlikely to visit here again. ***Which goes to show how wrong one can be! Revisited 27 Feb 2016, but with snow on the ground unable even to have a meaningful look.

Great day out. First train from Manchester and bus from Penrith then Sheffield Pike, Raise, Helvellyn, Cofa Pike, Fairfield, High Pike and The Golden Rule (and bus and train home!). Snow on the ground, windy, hail and good views. Not my first or last visit but I've never seen anything like a block amongst the rocks.
