The Whaw Moor trig point is situated on the northern side of a high wall running along the top of Great Pinseat, this makes access slightly awkward on the best approaches to Great Pinseat from the south via Hard Level Gill or the bridleway over Surrender Ground. Access from the bridleway to the north is much easier.
Considering it is in the north-east of the park a surprising number of Dales summits can be seen including Ingleborough far away to the south-west. The best views however are north towards the high fells of the North Pennines including Mickle Fell and Little Fell.
