From lane to west. Steep start, rising traverse to right at gorse line and picked up a good path to summit.Wycombe Wanderer16/12/2018
I asked permission from someone working on the holiday site. Just don't park on anyone's plot he said. What a result I even managed to park at the top of the siteDC11main01/04/2018
Over gate into woods then steeply up scree, through gorse. Found a grassy track going up then came face-to-face with a Rottweiler! I said good morning to the owner and walked up to the cairn. No-one else about so I walked out of the caravan park front gate.Dangerous Dave01/01/2018
