Here for the trigpoint. TP:UK log: Never mind the trig being slightly damaged, the bagger also now is! Trig on slippy bank near corner of golfers practice area, surrounded by high ferns and bracken, couldn’t see it until I climbed up on bank. Whilst trying to squash vegetation to get a photo, I slipped and ended up on my back some way down the bank, entangled in ferns and bracken. Took some time to get back up. Parked in practice area carpark, gate openable and easy enough to drive in. No where really to park on road other than blocking the gate.thejackrustles21/07/2018

Well gonna claim this one as we drove along the road where the summit lies. Nondescript, no real views, although excellent views from the flanks.fnem05/04/2016
