|Same route as colin crawford. Progress generally easier in trees rather than fire breaks||cjo||03/08/2018|
|From bridge at Kinnelhead, along track then north into trees. Fairly open and mature but windthrow is a problem. I joined the wall and followed it over the quartet of 400m contours. Deep snow in the firebreaks was a nuisance||Colin Crawford||08/03/2018|
|Large P area on road to S. Followed forest road to N and W of summit. Through short section of trees then followed firebreak to wall and onto summit.||chrisbien||11/09/2017|
|9th hill of 10 on an arduous but epic alternative Southern upland Way route from Sanquhar to Moffat, climbing Dalpedder hill, Cairn hill, Black hill, Penbane, Durisdeer hill, Ballencleuch Law, Rodger Law and Whiteside hill, entering the forest to follow the burn but had to divert to edge of forest due to fallen trees
Followed fence that went over summit (my gps unit recorded three places recording 410m). I eventually reached the Southern upland Way that i followed all the way to Moffat.||Dazingdale||02/05/2016|
