As David Gradwell.David Evans15/10/2017
From Elton, on a blisteringly hot day. Up the footpath running up the west side, then off piste to the top, and back down the road. Shorts not recommended, lots of stinging nettles. Route not recommended either, too much barbed wire and mine spoil to negotiate. No point being purist, just bag it from the road. Carried on to Anthony Hill, which is much, much better.Gill25/05/2017
