Insignificant cairn about 100 yards away from the ladder stile over the summit wall. I had to scramble over another dry stone wall to reach it (careful not to dislodge any stones). Views limited as the cloud was only just starting to clear. Lovely descent off Plover Hill to reach the Horton 'road' to Foxup. The next section was quite long through the fields in upper Littondale to reach the grass trod of Dawson Close. Very hot & the fell tops had completely cleared out by now.
