Full Screen Map

The summit boasts two trig points about 100m apart. GPS recorded the modern white trig pillar at SE 88661 99210 and the old concrete one at SE 88575 99218. Close to the white trig is a burial mound called Louven Howe. This is the highest point and marked by an old standing stone. A heather grouse moor surrounds all these features. Adders can be seen on warm days. They are timid but not harmless. An alternative operating point is Lilla Cross 600m SSE.
