Waliked up forest track from B Road due N. Old bulldozer track from high point led up for the last 150 yards close to top.GordonAdshead04/11/2019
Walked in on track from the north. Able to find an old vehicle track to ascend and avoid wet bracken. Found cairn with mossy boulders and also the mapped crags which are very modest in size.JohnW13/07/2019
From NH848045. Utterly straightforward. And it's definitely a cairn on top when you look under the mossColin Crawford09/06/2018
Track from 837030.chrisbien07/04/2017
Parked by the pig at NH841043. Path ok but is easily lost after the pylons, so it may be better to approach from NH848045. Nice wood, fallen trees easily avoidable. I think the heavily vegetated boulder on the summit may be an old cairn.alda14/10/2016
Short walk away from singletrack to the west. No arboreal issues, runnable forest. The summit is a moss covered boulder, nearly 1m high. The orienteering map is very handy here.fasgadh08/10/2016
