Thrashed straight down through very painful fir trees from Meikle Shag because there were no rides going NE, until burn then SUW. SE to forest edge, then jagged back up a ride which got within 100m of HP. Then truly horrific thrash the final 100m to a 1 tree wide ride which seemed to coincide with the summit on GPS. Hands and face and legs all scarred by the experience.Thearlaichdubh07/09/2018
SUW from A702, easy till last 100m then hideous.agentmancuso18/08/2018
forest track to within 100m then fight through the spruce.cjo23/01/2016
Simply horrid, Covered in thickly planted young Sitka. Even a Noethgrug crawl wasn't on due to the low level branches. Well scratched. I was content with the listed high point.Colin Crawford31/08/2015
SUW from A702.Main track NE smaller track steeply up and then SW. Came off too soon and pushed through dense trees (Coom Rig). E to break NE then down to track end. High point of track up to felled area (Pin Stane). Track back to car.chrisbien23/11/2014
After Meikle Shag, descended SE forest fence, SUW into wood, forest road up R, climbed L to higher road, steeply up NE from NS 94541 09505 to find narrow ride which passes 40m SE of summit, then push in thru moderately dense young sitka. Retraced steps to high level road then N to Pinstane. With Andrew Tibbetts. Relative shelter of forest welcome on a wild windy misty day.RHW15/03/2014
