Parked in The Arch car park (SN 76557 75613. Took the forest road north-east, and followed Anton's route. This was a bit prickly, and not needed. A made path leaves the forest road further west at SN 77616 76619 and passes close to the summit before heading down north to join another mountain road. We used this for the descent. With MP on survey. Continued on to Pen y Garn.Man of Kernow131/08/2014
