One of several similar outcropping rocks in moss grass and rough pasture. Parked at end of road N of Bolventor and the A 30Denise 11/03/2018
From end of the Blackhill road where there is parking space for 3 cars. Bridleway NNE onto moor then E along fence line to summit. Great walking on short firm grass. High point a small loan rock in moss/grass ESE of prominent rocks. Raining, misty views.RichardM11/03/2018
Parked at 204 804 , end of road in spaces at gate just outside westmoorgate. Enjoyable gentle walk to summit via Leskernick hill and Black Rock. Fantastic vista on clear day , high wind prompted quick return to car following fence, stone wall and tracks of the beast of Bodmin moor ( more likely cross country runner on fast decent).Hippy7713/02/2018

Dedicated parking area at the very end of the road which runs west from Trewint. Easy grassland so direct route from Leskernick isno problem. If doing this one on its own, the wall starting at the car aprk runs directly to the summit with an asy track developing alongside it.moorsman17/06/2016
From Westmoorgate. Room to park 1-2 cars by gate at SX 20528 80384. Took stony track west onto moor, then south up to fence on grass, following it south to wooden gate. Summit just beyond. Walk continued to Leskernick Hill. A day of fierce WSW wind, but with some sunshine.marktrengove31/03/2015
Easy parking to NNE. Took a direct path to the summit. Short grass. Excellent walk.destaylor30/11/2013
Plenty of roadside parking on minor road to NE - about 100m before fence at end of road at Westmoorgate. Followed fence round SW then S to top past Black Rock, no problems. Top obvious, just betond fence junction, though of little merit. Good views. On to Leskernick Hill next.Hillsidenick13/08/2013
