Squeezed the car in by Sea View Farm- did the double back then up steep flinty path. Was careful by cliff edge when photographing top and view.Mark Sims06/12/2018
Roadside parking on Ladram Rd (at Sea View Farm). RoW on Barr's Lane initially then a bit of a slog through brash and bramble, would have been better to continue on that path till it meets coastal path and double back. Track leads up to the trig. Returned via coastal path. With Carole Engel.jonglew24/02/2018

Nice walk from Ladram Bay. Quite an exposed summit on the seaward sideisabelle01/11/2014
Have done this a number of times. With family and friends. On one occasion I ran up it from the near by Mutter's Moor car park. I met a number of Marines from the nearby Lympstone Training Centre. At the tender of 50 plus I was treated with a great deal of respect as I powered past them to the summit. They had Bergans I didn't. When they got to their check I was taking a well earned breather.Then one suggested I put on one of their packs. ***** or what ever expletive you want to use. These things are heavy, very very heavy. I salute you all.Anthony Vosper01/10/2012
