With K, M and RM. Red flags flying, didn't linger.Ashley30/05/2016
Trig point by the roadsideMariana Trench02/05/2016
The sign at the start of the military road said road open and do not stop. I went up, stopped, walked the 10 or so yards to the trig and came back down. This road is not on my Garmin satnav.clivevilla29/12/2015
Drive up below web site shows firing times TP is damaged
Nice drive along military road and short walk to trigRamblingpaul26/08/2015
The drive through the ranges was more interesting than the top.Colin Crawford25/06/2015
4/13 Easy bag as military road was open briefly !Fergalh30/05/2015
Buy a Sherman Tank to reach this top perhaps? For 50,000 you can buy one off the web - amazing what ex-military stuff there is for sale. Or else await a non red-flying day to drive up in your normal day to day car passing through the firing ranges.Chris Pearson05/11/2014
Too wet & windy to go Nuttalling, especially after yesterdays soaking. Drive right up to trig so feel guilty about claiming bag. Still walked last 5m to take photo.SteveSmith20/02/2014
Near enough a roadside HuMP, but on a military road that is not always open to the public; today it was. Drove off the metalled road, right to the summit, so perhaps our easiest HuMP bagged and a hotine trig to sweeten it!jonglew20/07/2013
Drive up job, road was open according to MOD signs but as soon as I stopped and went to the Trig a spooky black 4x4 slowed and observed me...dicky05/01/2013
A drive up sub-Marilyn and trig with Phil Cooper and my Black Mazda 6. Red Flags were flying on this Sunday with a lot of military vehicles on the move which were all left hand drive.Dugswell218/11/2012
My Garmin Car Satellite Navigation led me a right dance as the 'military' road was not on it. From south take the road from Llywel and its an excellent road all the way. Easy parking.destaylor15/03/2012
