Cycled from Todholes (11:10) for about 2km till the track turned uphill, then walked through the woods to the high point and up the very pleasant ridge to the summit. Overcast, but good views. Lots of people. Back same route with detour to see the plane fragment near the top. Finished 13:10.dbb24/07/2020
