Bagged by mistake on the way to Law Knasty. Don't ask. Took an old track up from approx. 286122, then took off up through the old trees on very easy and very steep ground to get to the firebreak along the ridge. Great fun. More than can be said for the pile of poo that constitutes the summit of Law Knasty.Gill27/05/2018

Parked opposite convenient FB at NT 27779 13781. Visited after Kneis Law. Approach from NE is an easier ascent than steep descent from NW.SteveSmith03/12/2015
