Lots of windthrow.chalky195329/06/2019
Thought we were going to bag an unlogged hill until we spotted alda's footprints in the snow from the previous day. We didn't fancy tackling the windblown chaos E of the summit and ended up entering the forest from the N (NO32313 67243). Easy enough from there to top (apart from a short final crawl). Heavily vegetated cairn is well hidden under fallen tree with toppled short wooden post on base a few mtrs to N.Lindsay M18/02/2018
Easy track north from the Prosen Hotel, easy field to edge of trees and then mayhem over the fence, a tangled mass of fallen trees and branches. Found a way in from the fence corner to the east but had to make a loop south to get further in. Got to within 20m of the OS spot height and cairn and could not see anything that looked higher but impossible to be sure. Altimeter read 465m, it had been spot on. Would be interested to know if anyone else can find the cairn that is supposed to be there. Lots of lying snow made it easy to find my way out again by following my footprints.alda17/02/2018
