Bridleway from the west has been diverted. Leads to the top - perched on the edge of the quarry extension.Moorponder30/12/2019
Nice top - eventually but harder than expected. Paths have been re-routed into 6 foot wide coridoors ruined by cattle tracks in the wet ground. Found way through forest at top.GordonAdshead09/11/2019
Roadside parking dicey but foreman at the building site across the road gave me permission to use his car park. Follow the footpath, then the mast access lane. Summit unaffected by quarrying and is quite distinctive if you can find it. Cross the fence by the mast and follow the fence for about 50m The summit is obvious if you look through the trees.moorsman18/10/2019
From point 196, up track and over fenceDC11main14/09/2019
Parked op gateway to mast track. Straight up. Easy. With B, W, and R.jenx25/03/2019
Passing so why not a stroll up the old lane to its summit with Jenx, Bryher and Willnordicstar25/03/2019
Marginal parking roadside on B5301 at start of a RoW. Would have been better to park at 196m spot height and walk up the comms mast access track - the way I came down. Quarry works affects the HP, best guess is by a disused sectional mast, near a brick bldg.jonglew13/12/2017
There and back from Parsonby RoadBlue The Dog12/06/2016
Easy verge parking on B5301 by start of footpath. Section of footpath now removed by quarrying activity. However easy to hop over new temporary barrier and follow line of old path without any problems.Hillsidenick23/04/2016

Parked on rough verge on B5301 at junction with A595 at NY 15237 36226. Up road to public footpath and finally quarry track to summit grassy mound.David Gradwell23/08/2015
'Public footpath Moota Hill' starting due E on B5301. Followed this then N rim of quarry past barrier boulders, masts then sharp right at top. Quarry road passes about 15m from summit knoll.Aye Jimmy06/08/2015
Along FP from NY151,363.I made summit 14449,36342Crib Goch01/02/2015
From bend in rad, gateway parking for one. Up FP opposite to top fence line. Through Quarry fence and track on edge of excavations right round to teh top. Uninspiring, may be gone soon if workings extend.nordicstar02/12/2014
