From Stowe's Hill via Wardbrook Farm. Going got rougher and rougher and wetter. Lots of Tussocks made going slow. Crossed river by fence and found easy access to top from ESE. Went to all the rocky outcrops at summit. Bracken on Descent to NE was not easy.PeterD04/10/2017
Continued from Fox Tor. Followed the high ground SSW over East Moor down to Rushyford Gate. Then took forest track SE, then east to a slight break in the trees at about SX 23418 74399. Followed this easily south up to a barbed fence, then through tussock grass to the summit. Continued to Langstone Downs.marktrengove11/04/2017
Superb sunny round of 7 Bodmin tumps. The high point is on the west side of the central outcrop cluster. We approached from the SE from Hurlers carpark. There is gap in the wall in the 334m summit to the south, and the reed/ tussock section is quite short. To the north near the forest is a boggy brambly section. We expected worse!Denise 22/10/2016
First TUMP on clockwise circuit of the Withey Brook valley starting at Minions. Superb weather, a day of cloudless blue skies and great views. If descending NE best keep close to edge of forest to avoid brambles.RichardM22/10/2016
From the east this hill is a nightmare! Parked at the end of the Sharp Tor road where there is a notice stating that there is no access through Wardbrook Farm. Walkers must use the open access to get round it. On reaching the farm boundary I turned south. Big mistake. The bridlegates all lead into a morass of ankle breaking tussocks rising from deep bogs and hidden streams. Walking is very slow and requires careful route finding. Waited until I was out of sight of the farm then scaled the fence and headed back to the path through the pasture. The walk down to Withey Brook is little better.Crossing the river is difficult. I crossed it at the open access boundary by holding on to wire mesh debris collecting wire and pulling myself across the stones. The climb to the summit is deep bracken interspersed with gorse. Really losing the will to live by the time I reached the summit. Only problem now is the reverse journey back to the path!!!moorsman18/06/2016
From ESE, car park at end of road above Sharptor, via Langstone Down. Then on to Stowe's Hill: troublesome wall across 334m summit negotiated via gap just W of highest point.RHW13/04/2014
