Parked in small layby 500m S. of Dalveen entrance at NS 88428 06022 - Up farm track which passes on left side of buildings & up to high point - From high point, well-used ATV track to unmarked summit. Friendly young farmer out on hill doing the rounds. (S)gerrybowes13/12/2018
From East Mount Lowther. Returned to the bealach. Then took faint path down the Enterkin Burn glen, fording it lower down to climb east on sheep-paths to the bealach between Steygail and Cold Moss. Then very steep ascent up north flank to summit. To descend, contoured round to NE ridge, picking up ATV track down to Upper Dalveen. To avoid farm, worked my way with difficulty on very steep slopes to descend east flank, and up to A 702. Should just have continued to Upper Dalveen! Then took A 702 NW back to car near Overfingland. Solo.marktrengove17/07/2018

In the lead on OMM 2007 with Darren on Day 2 Medium Score. We were set off first and went steeply straight up above the whole OMM campsite to the summit which we skirted by a few metres to save a few seconds as not quite on our routeChris Pearson28/10/2007
