The way in from the north along the permissive footpath is now blocked with fences and barbed wire, due to forestry work. There is, however,a way in from the south east along track to Parkhouse quarry and then a walk to the trigpoint close to the wall.JohnW04/03/2019
From spot height 309. On to Summerground Crags.Wycombe Wanderer09/12/2018
Approach from N - actually trig bagging - wandered about in vicinity of trig - found out hill was a Tump later. Good views N to S through E. All quiet on a Sunday evening.ger23/09/2018
Forest currently closed whilst logging is taking place. All entrance barriers locked. Circumnavigated one from which a good track leads to within 200m of the top. Pass through the old quarry, scramble up the low edge and you can see the trig from the top. Just head directly to it. 40 minutes return.moorsman10/05/2018

Around the forest with Bryher and Jenx, first time to the trig, first of many!nordicstar14/05/2017
First of multiple visits this year, walking the pup.jenx14/05/2017
Bagged as YSM173 Greystoke Park. Parked at gate, nipped over fence, up large track past Quarry and took path towards the trigpoint. About 50m away took a man path towards trig to be confronted by a crag! No way I was climbing that but I could see the trig on top of it! Back tracked to about 100m before the trigpoint and headed to fallen wall and up to trigpoint, took a track back that skirted Quarry and ended up back on the track I started on.thejackrustles01/05/2017

As for Tony Hartry. Tricky negotiating a BWF, but back via forest with red plastic ties.arranc17/05/2015
Track from N then hang a left just past gravel quarry. Trig on ridge, actually above a little crag to SW.Aye Jimmy15/03/2015
From track to NE, through old quarry.agentmancuso05/08/2014
With Jo, walk from Millfield Lodge: good tracks through woods to NY40452 33950 then good path to NY40535 33864 before using faint path through wall gap (NY40576 33869) onto Greystoke Forest. Visited Gillcambon Tarn (well worth a visit for the birds) on return. Weather; overcast, cold wind, good visibility.amblerbob05/01/2014
When Charles and I arrived at this summit it looked like the tamperers had left their expensive GPS equipment there unattended. Turned out to be an accurate timing device for the noisy rally drivers practicing in the quarry. Lovely sunny day.Martin R04/11/2013

From CP NY404346 follow path then track for <1 km). At quarry go on 50m then take left ride for 100m. See wall and bank, follow line of least resistance to gain ridge, and visible trig. Not an easy find! Great views all round (just)nordicstar02/07/2012
Short outing to bag a 'Clem' from road along track then rough going to summit. Staying in our favorite 'Sunnybank' cottage in Greystoke.Chris Pearson25/05/2007
