/ Trig points near cliffs
Apologies if this should really be in the hillwalking / destinations section.
With the current soggy weather, I've taken to wandering up to trig points when I can't climb, but was wondering, what trig points are there that are on top of / near cliffs?
High Neb for starters
Thanks for that. I already have the splendid trigpointing app, but as I've only really just started logging them, I was wondering if there was any trigs that I may have inadvertently passed whilst out climbing, (in the days before I started taking notice of them).
I have to say, I'm a climber through and through, but I have found that trig points are about the only thing that can motivate me to go for a walk when the weather is too bad to climb.
A few of the trigs in the Peak I have already inadvertently done, Stanage Neb, Stanage Pole, the one on top of Birchen etc, but am sure there's many I've missed, also many that I could combine with future climbing trips.
Ben Nevis, famously.
If you're Peak based, there's one about a mile NW of Alport Castles.
(Which is a huge tottering pile of choss - not a place to climb, but interesting to visit at least once.)
Not the best suggestion for soggy weather though, probably. The poorly defined path that goes there from Alport Castles is a bit gooey at the best of times.
Alport Castles are reputably good fun in very cold winter contions.
