Trig just emerging from the jungle. Go round left from the track end.IainT11/07/2018
From the 270 bus dropped at the New Pitligo road junction. With nordicstar on this one, uninspiring comms furniture yet you need to thrash about in thorns and gorse around the trig. Oh, to be on a mountain somewhere.Eddie14/03/2017
nearby track from road to the west... walk along NE and in the track NW to the trig pillar which is a bout 120 metres past the little buildingvegibagger20/04/2016
Walked around the gorse.jimbloomer17/04/2016
Tsk, Nordicstar you will be Humping sometime soonMartin R25/03/2016
Trig hiding in the gorse.jenx20/01/2016
With Jenx after a trip to Pennen, home of film Local Hero. Parked just off road before the gate and walked the track to summit/trig. Not very inspiring but these Hump things rarely are...nordicstar20/01/2016
Here for the trigpoint. TP:UK log: Getting dark but easy access via tarmaced track to within 80m of trig, then some gorse and heather to negotiated but nothing too bad.thejackrustles24/12/2015
Was actually getting the trig. Eventually found it surrounded by whin. It was a big mistake wearing my sandals! Ouch.BigJ30/07/2014
short stroll from access road to SW. Trig point well camouflaged by gorse.Thearlaichdubh04/05/2014
easy to park at the beginning of a tarmac road, short walk to the trig.tallblond16/02/2014
Parked on access road. The track stops short of the trig. The 235m contour seems to be imaginary. Although it is possible that there is higher ground in the gorse and bushes it is marginal.chrisbien06/06/2011
