Topographical features: AW deliberates about the highest point of High Stile in the Pictorial Guide but in his mapping he indicates two cairns close together as being the Wainwright summit (one of the cairns has now gone). He remarks on a large cairn being at the OS station of 2644′ (*marked as 2643′ on all but the 2 1/2 map of the day) which was at GR: NY16960 14781. This he considered as being lower than the other cairns despite it being the trig point. However, resurveying has confirmed that the highest point lies further along that northeast ridge at a small cairn. This will be the true summit.
