Logged Descriptions  (logged by 22 users)ByDate of Ascent
Easy and pleasant ascent by mountain bike track meandering through the trees from forestry track at NN967049. Descended off-piste SE to rejoin forestry track, then spotted another MTB track leaving the forestry track at NN968044 which would probably have been a better descent. If heading for Innerdownie this would make a good break from the forestry track trudge.TRG31827/05/2020
Easy from the col to south of hillhillsman23/09/2019
from glen sherup cp, along track then up through trees following a mtb trail to near the top.robertphillips23/03/2019
Round of 6 tumps from Glen Sterup: Black, Innerdownie, Whitewisp, Tarmangie, Cairnmorris and Shee. Up MTB trails on north face, tree fight down south ridge.Topographer5719/11/2017
Freezing fog on A80 but lovely sunshine in Glen Devon. From CP track to col S of hill and reasonably easy through the trees.chrisbien20/11/2016
Along the forest track to NN967043. Then up the fire break to the clear summit top.Play2End09/08/2016
From convenient car park at the foot of Glen Sherup. Quick and easy ascent before work. Same route as alda & Minto.Lindsay M19/06/2016
Ideal for camper-vanners. Footpath from car park, to join forest road, which is followed L at junction round hill to col. Then easily upwards through trees to obvious summit in trees. Feeling that I'd not encountered enough of the trees I took a sporting line in descent, approx NW, to rejoin forest road about 200m from footpath junction. Found evidence of MTB trails near to track.Minto17/06/2016
Looked forbidding but turned out to be easy from col on track to south-east of summit. Choice of easy breaks, no need for hands or hood up, just a little light ducking and a couple of easy step-overs.alda27/02/2016
