Started at Petts Farm. Followed tracks up through the wood and then landrover track to the summit which isn't marked on the map.total round trip 2h20kitwe16/01/2009
Solo. Parked a little east of Boig. Walked back along the road to Boig and then NNE up a track and then a path to the col between Broom Hill and Pressendye. The lower part of the path, as shown on the 1:50,000 Second Series, Edition B1, Sheet 37 was not evident/blocked so the track was followed instead. Continued to the summit of Pressendye. The path is really a track, although there was no evidence of recent use. There is a very large cairn on the summit. I continued on a track going ~SE the track to reach a forest. There was no path or track shown on the map. I followed a track through the forest (as per map) to join my outward route. Cold with a biting wind.pwbellarby29/03/2008
