5 of 5. Beautiful day. Theres grand views in all directions from here. I could make out some of the southern fells in the Lakes. Steep but fairly simple to get to from either paths, north or south.

The trig and the immediate surrounding area is open access land. However the farmland you have to cross to get to it isnt. Its a nice walk up from the minor road to the east. Excellent views from this location

lovely spot. fantastic view to pen-y-ghent from an unusual angle . easy walk up from feizor- past pot scar. you can park at the far end of feizor through the gate in the climber's parking spot if you want. Steep end to the walk up from the RoW . Bench mark looks almost rusty, not verdigris'ed
30th Apr 2005 16:00 by ted
Plug missing; all sighting holes open with view of the upper centre mark. A steep little hill with top somewhat cluttered by cairns/shelters. Good limestone pavement.

Had to visit this trig point in a hurry as I had come up to Giggleswick by train which was running late. As I had to catch a train back within 2 hours of visiting the trig point I literally 'jogged across the Scar'! This was my first 'bag' of 2005.

Terrific view towards Pen Y Ghent from the trig. Usual route up from Stainforth. No public RoW path to the trig but there are paths there from both Stainforth & Feizor. No cars, on foot! And again 23/03/2005 + 11/07/2008
