From Gainsborough Road garages- path soon peters out into sheep trods but going not too bad - no heatherMark Sims12/04/2018
Up and down from near the garages. Quite boggy in places. Best way to avoid it: directly up and to the left from the gate over the prominent mound directly behind white telegraph pole, follow this track until it meets a boggy section, which can be avoided by going round the edge to the right. Then short walk to top. Windfarms being built nearby.amarillo-oro-como15/11/2017
