This isn’t one of the easiest trig points to reach. On my visit I approached from the south-west getting as close as I could by using one of the shooting tracks above House Gill before striking out across the pathless moor.

The views are restricted by higher ground to the west but are quite extensive looking to the east where there is a fairly uninterrupted view as far as the distant North York Moors.
