From South. The road becomes a forestry track but theres no gates for some way so drove up as far as i could. A simple walk along he forest edge before picking up paths through the heather. Lovely summit seat for one in the cairn. The view towards Ingleborough is splendid. Shame about the trees blocking off the Pendle direction.stig_nest25/10/2015
