The trig point is sited about a quarter of a mile south-west of the highest point of the fell which is situated on Old Pike. The huge cairn right next to it makes the trig point look rather insignificant. The view though is superb, especially to the north up the valley of Wharfedale. To the west the view stretches over Skipton Moor to Pendle Hill and beyond.
