Staying with my brother in Sheffield for today's Tour de France stage. Rather than have a long morning cycle ride, decided to tick off a couple of trigs. Cycled the first part of the bridle way from the Strines road to the east, then took to foot. A fantastic clear sunny morning. Cycle shoes not ideal for scaling the rocky summit, so went up in socks!

A still, misty grey day, on a round walk with my mate, Tracker Dog, from Bradfield and the dams. Easy to find and easy walking as stone slabs have now replaced boggy tracks. Views limited in the distance because of the mist, so had sarnies here instead of Lost Lad. Lots of grouse, grouse butts and land owned by Wentworth estates.

Can't put if off any longer. The last big'un in my Peak District project. When I was a slip of a forty-year-old I did the Peak Challenge, (Edale to here and back), a few times. Best time? 3:40 I think. The trick being how to get down from the trig point. Hum! Parked at Ashopton Bridge - surprisingly quiet for school holiday time - and up to Whinstone Lee, which presented a slight problem toeing in up to the ridge. Then it was stones after stones. Never quite sure which is which, but surely the first is the Coach and Horses? Not a soul in sight until the pillar, when it became Derwent Edge rush hour! Back the same way, (embarrassing!), but dropped early before Whinstone to avoid the cornices ... and got lost in the woods. I have so been here before. Still. Lots of sunshine, to be expected, and lots of snow, not so. On to the Yorkshire Bridge, which may have lost its 6d jukebox biker glamour but still maintains a glorious selection of beers amongst the crockery clutter! A good day.

Plastic plug. Public. Access Land. Peak District National Park. Magnificent trigpoint on top of rocks, with some scrambling needed to reach it. Walk up from Ashopton Viaduct - the route is long but the paths are good & the going is pretty easy on the approach along Derwent Edge. Various weird & wonderful rock formations passed on the way. Overall, a High Peak classic.

A nice ramble up from the Fairholmes past Lost Lad. You could even see the wall of rain approaching from the edge, so had plenty of time to find shelter behind some rocks

Fantastic early morning views all round, someone has very carefully stencilled on the pillar 'FitzWilliam Estates Kill Red Kites' An instruction or an observation ? Either way they have defaced an historic artefact to communicate the message. One pot calling a kettle if you ask me!

Good condition, although could do with another lick of paint but it still stands out from a few mile away, very good trig point position on the high gritstone tors, which involves a slight scramble up, but be careful when its windy!! as it was very when I went up there, couldnt let go of the trig. shell get some pics up next time I've got my hardrive out
