Ascent of Roseberry Topping on 2011-06-16
|Date:||Thursday, June 16, 2011|
|Ascent Type:||Successful Summit Attained|
| Elevation:||320 m / 1050 ft|
Ascent Trip ReportA 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 its 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 enjoyable but challenging walk (which features in Wild Walks: Mountain, Moorland and Coastal Walks in Britain and Ireland by Ken Wilson and Richard Gilbert) in both directions and the choice lies between a viewpoint finish and a cultural one with an ancient church and welcoming pub. Walking towards a pub is generally the better option.
