Perversely, I enjoyed this awkward hill, taking the same route as Agent Mancuso. there's no sign of a path along the firebreaks but the going wasn't too bad. Emerging from the trees, a new track is in the process of construction and gets you to below Leap Hill, with only brash and spongy tussocks to negotiate. Big views over the forest from the top, a surprisingly prominent hillColin Crawford26/06/2019
Used agentmancuso's approach from NT 5337.01517 with large track going off. Track soon ends at forest, over a km of horizontal boggy firebreak follows to end of wood. Then huge muddy track and felled forest, not much fun. Nor was the weather, suddenly wet, misty and windy.Aye Jimmy17/02/2019
P start of track to Sundhope. Mild, cloudy and wet underfoot. In wellies so took least steep way to the top by going through the trees SW of top (Black Rig).chrisbien30/12/2018
Bagged same day as Greatmoor Hillalanm907/11/2016
Along firebreaks from near Lime Kiln Edge to forest edge then from SW. Mist & snow.agentmancuso10/04/2016
From fence line to South then down fire break from NT513012 to open hillside, steeply up on lush grass and bilberry bushes to gain grassy top, great views.Anton17/06/2014
