The Sulber trig point can be reached easily enough by making a 0.4 mile detour north of the Horton – Ingleborough path as it passes through Sulber Nick. The trig point sits on grass just back from a modest limestone edge.

From the north, the trig point can also be easily reached by taking the footpath through the yard of South House. Just after passing through a gate, take a stile in the wall opposite on to access land. The trig point is then just a few minutes walk away.

Without doubt the most striking object on view is Pen-y-ghent across the valley. Also prominent in the view is High Green Field Knott. The slopes of Simon Fell dominate the view to the west.
