Parked in forest car park at NY214244. Up through forest tracks and joined mapped hill paths at NY211228. Followed mapped paths via Grizedale Pike. Unfortunately this stone built secondary station pillar is becoming worse for wear. Several stones out from rear of pillar. Completed 21st April 1950 costing £36.11s.0d. Spider retains original OS centre cap with shallow engraved letters. Flush bracket faces 135° (SE). Vented through NW sight hole. 360° to many other Lakeland Fells and the Kirkcudbrightshire coastline.

Bottom corner has stones missing, but it seems sturdy enough
10th May 2011 13:00 by sjr
Very strong winds and the mist was down...Trig looks like it is going to topple soon as the bottom is badly damaged..these winds can't help.

Round of Coledale beck from Braithwaite. Sunny day but very windy

Incredibly windy on the summit, fine example of stone-built trig, slim and erect. Fine views on the walk from Buttermere to Keswick.

Ascended via Tower Ridge on the north east face. Conditions were glorious weather, superb views, sub zero temperatures and cloud down in valley.Snow conditions were fine and powdery. A superb scramble onto the summit plateau, a very different approach and superb.

A day walking the Coledale Round with my 12yr old son. This hill has two names, Crag Hill on newer OS maps, Eel Crag on older maps an in Wainwright's listings. Fine views across to The Pennines and The Solway.

Hard walk up from the car park at Cinderdale Common via Lad Hows and Grasmoor. While having a Easter break in Keswick four seasons in one day with 3 inch of snow in one hour at Grag Hill. No views today due to snow and mist.

A neat, masonry pillar in reasonable condition. Superb views today through 360 degrees. Also very busy. Everyone and his dog seemed to be walking the Coledale Horseshoe today!

Stunning Views, damage appears to have got a lot worse in a short period of time (see photo)

Nice day, very quiet on top though. Few blocks missing from base of pillar.

Done in coledale round tough fell in sunny conditions Blistered both heels in new boots! Very large flat summitt, trig in natural stone Magic view down coledale valley.
2nd Apr 2009 13:45 by Managra
In good condition but it's hard to tell when they're built of local stone. Wonderful views in all directions. Metal plug with lightly indented lettering.

From Sail steep pull up very exposed with a high wind chill today verglas covers most of the summit dome. Previous visits 27/5/1998 & 9/11/2006

Did the Coledale round in pretty poor weather conditions. Posting a photo as its one of the few trigs I have seen with waves around the base.

Done as an extension to a walk to Causey Pike with decent via the scree path on Eel Crag which was interesting to say the least! Good views from the trig. Note: Revisited 06/11/11,trig now quite badly damaged with large amounts of the stones at the base of the NE facing corner now missing,apparently strewn around the area of the trig itself.
6th Sep 2008 13:30 by Ivanhoe
Really nasty weather - wet, misty & very gusty. Third visit to this trig. Struggled up to the top & (once again) had trouble finding the official footpath off down to Whiteless Edge. Noticed a few loose/missing rock slabs from the pillar.
9th Jun 2008 12:55 by staggie34
Did this as part of the Coledale Horseshoe on a very warm day. Cracking views and very few people about. During April 2007, I'd walked up the Rigg Beck valley below here and always wondered what it was like up here - fantastic. The trig pillar is missing a few stones.

Ascent Via Causey pike on round of Grassmere fells

As part of a walk up Grasmoor, the weather closed in at the trig and then fair up 10 mins later when i was on the way down. All in good order
29th Jul 2007 12:00 by peregrinus
top slightly damaged, graceful stonebuilt pillar, metal cap, shallow letters. Gorgeous view of Skiddaw, Blencathra and across the Solway to Galloway. With Yiannis Tridimas and Alan Duncan, the day after supporting Neil Shepherd's and Ran Fiennes' Bob Graham Round attempts. 2-hour round trip from Stair Village Hall, where we were staying. Great weather, brilliant scenery.

Back here as part of a morning circuit of the grizedale round before sorting out some new boots in Keswick. bit overcast but lovely walking weather. Noticed one of the round bumps that are sometimes left behind on removed trigs on the top of Grizedale Pike but forgot to take a photo.

Visited on a glorious day while walking the Coledale Round. Spectacular views and not too many others about to disturb the peace!

spent the night near hopegill head ,lots of overnight snow scrambled up eel crag to reach summit
23rd Aug 2005 15:00 by buryblue
Crag Hill on the OS maps but if you read Wainwrights guide he refers to it as being Eel Crag. You can reach this trig point on the circular Coledale Round walk. You climb up from Braithwaite over Grisedale Pike or take the easier miners path via Force Crag mine.

Wonderful round from Braithwaite on a glorious day,but windy at the top.
