Unless you are a particularly confident and agile scrambler the trig point is frustratingly out of reach. The outcrop it is sat on is just too high for most people to climb up on to. On my second visit, in January 2015, two climbers actually appeared with a climbing mat but after a brief examination decided it was too difficult even for them (to be fair there was a lot of snow about).

While I can’t comment on the view from the slightly more elevated trig point, from the ground below it is quite extensive to the north and south but is largely obscured to the east and west by the neighbouring plantations. Dominating the view is the nearby mast. Also in view are the ‘golf balls’ at RAF Menwith Hill.
