Route as described by BaggerGutt. Very easy on dry rock; I walked to the top in under 30 seconds! Just as easy coming down due to fantastic grip on the rock. Solo.Dangerous Dave29/06/2019
Start up groove on north west side of rock tor between two main rock masses as described by Alan. At the end of the groove step left on rock step then on rock step to get you on a left trending rock slope to the top. Best climbed on a dry day for maximum adhesion!!BaggerGutt14/05/2019
Probably fairly easy if the rock is not wet and you are not carrying a large rucksack up. I found it awkward in damp and misty conditions.alda25/08/2017

Just 100m or so to the south of the previous tor along the ridge, scrambling up onto the top of it proved difficult until I located a route on the northwest side. yorkie06/04/2007
