Ascent Trip Report

A small but interestingly shaped hill with fabulous views on a clear day. Its qualities are acknowledged by being not only one of the "Trail 100" best hills in all the UK, but also it's summit views over Teeside, the Vale of York and most of the North York Moors being classed as one of England's 100 best views in the book of that title by Simon Jenkins.

This particular visit was as the final part of a South to North traverse of the North York Moors from Lastingham. I've done this walk in both directions and the choice lies between a viewpoint finish and a cultural one with an ancient church and a welcoming pub.
