Devised a Barbondale Skyline route from Barbon which would make a fantastic fell race. Visiting Crag Hill for the pillar. I approached from Bull Pot Farm onto Crag Hill, Great Coum, Occupation Road and returned to Barbon via Calf Top and Castle Knot. Purposefully didn't finish until 19.45, love evenings alone and on the hills. Gifted to commercial and wild berries which have been abundant this year. Never seen so many brambles laden with juicy blackberries.

Hiked Great Coum from Dent. Went along the river before climbing through fields up to Green Lane track, following it around before a steep climb of Binks Brow. TP was a short detour from the summit of Great Coum. Great views to the SW. Descended to the north bedfore rejoining Green Lane and following it around to the track down past the waterfalls and back into Dent. Beer at the George & Dragon

Something for everyone today. Drove up from Kingsdale via a grope around Yordas Cave (found out our torch wasn't good enough). Then watched some hang gliders doing their thing on White Shaw Moss before setting off up Occupation Road towards Great Coum. At Blea Gills we left the track and headed for the ridge and the old 3 county marker stone- the meeting point of Lancs, Westmorland and West Riding of Yorks. From that point we headed NW for the top of Crag Hill. I hadn't thought too much about the views but in the last few yards a wonderful panorama westwards opened up. The pillar has a nice circular surround and today was sporting a 3 red stars motif. Rounded off the day with a dip in the waterfall pool at the side of the road in beautiful Deepdale

September Camp 2020: Dent. From Dent up Flinter Gill then E along the Green Lane track. The hardest bit of an ascent this way is finding a way off this track and onto the fell. We hopped a gate near the quarry marked on the map near to the Megger Stones but however you get up this steep bit you need to hit the wall corner at SD705847. You can then keep this wall on your left all the way to the summit of Great Coum. Crag Hill trig then lies along the summit WSW. It is an amazing place, quiet, and with probably better views than some of its more famous (and busier) Dales tops. Save for a clear day and enjoy.

The descent sw to the Red Rose Caving House, wild orchids, kilns, sinkholes, caves and a stranded lamb all added to the interest of todays visit to this trig point.

Could not see a thing. Calf Top fleeting appeared above the mist, but then went for ever. Snow along the walls was frozen hard - easy to walk on. I used some of it to clean my flask out after my chicken soup. Pillar scribbeld on, The N face is more like NW, not north. No plug, whereas some of the older photos show one. Went straight up from Dent, right at the green lane, 450m to track leaving south, eventually following wall all the way up. Back via Great Coum

vgc, no cap or plug, just N of wall, grassy summit, fine view, especially of Howgills. Straightforward ascent from ESE, collecting Great Coum en route for the Marilyn yearlist.

Walked in from layby below Tow Scar to bag all the trigs on this ridge. Third of the morning. Great location and great views I'm sure in better weather, but not much to see today. Wind was biting and very strong - is this really July? Graffiti still evident on the pillar - why it needs its grid reference painted on it I dont know. The N obviously signifies the direction that face points.

Good view today. Shame about the graffiti - it has numbers painted on one side and a letter "N" on another.

Came up from Leck Fell House via Gragareth, Green Hill and Great Coum. Good to see that new stiles have been put in on the two walls on Great Coum - must be as a result of Open Access. Very wet underfoot all the way up despite recent dry weather. Good middle distance views today but haze in the far distance - Morecambe Bay barely visible. This trig point is only 30 yards inside the National Park but nonetheless must therefore be visited! Ease Gill on the descent a fascinating place - Cow Dubs very impressive.

Good condition apart from numbers painted on pillar; plug intact. Not at the highest point (Great Coum) but views to West more extensive from here - Morecambe Bay, Barbondale, Middleton Fell, The Howgills, Cross Fell, Rise Hill; also Ingleborough, Whernside and Gragareth.

Excellent views on a good day. Not a lot of public RoW routes in the area but the paths (and stiles) are there once you get up on the tops. Good walk along the ridge passing Great Coum and over to Gragareth. Long hike from railway station at Dent to Ribblehead. No cars, on foot.

Visited to record FB number. The pillar was completed in September 1949 costing 15.5s.6d. In 1950 this marker was computed for triangulation as secondary station SD47/12 in the Barrow-in-Furness block. Flush bracket S5661 was levelled for height also in 1950. This trig point was last maintained by the OS in June 1976. Final trig on a week long holiday based at Keer Side, SD563751.

Walked from White Shaw Moss following track through Foul Moss (aptly named) tp Blea Gills, then diagonally up steep slope to summit of Great Coum (686m) then along ridge to Crag Hill's grassy summit to find plain pillar.
