From eastbound layby. Did the alternative summit a week earlier on route to west.jimbloomer25/01/2019
Gorsy hummock on S side of busy A30, easily accessible from verge. Parking in lay by on N side of A 30 c 200 m west. We also visited the trig which involves a short thrash South through gorse and bramble. Best to approach tump first and then assess options for trig access. Foggy so could not see the alternative HP - OS SH of 149m c .5km NE- only noticed when writing up!Denise 21/10/2018
Gorsy hummock on rough access land on S side of the A30, only 15m from busy carriageway. Uninspiring in mist and gloom.RichardM21/10/2018
Parked in a gateway on the north side of the A30 just W of the summit. Over the gate into a pasture and the trig is visible on the far boundary. No problem at all. The top is pretty flat and the far side of the trig is a bit more difficult. Had a bit of a walk about as other spots could possibly be higher than the trig but not significantly so.clivevilla12/11/2017
An easy bag from the A30 lay-by as some of the fence is down and the vegetation hasn't grown much so far with Iain Brown.Dugswell212/03/2017
Visited on return journey from Scilly primarily to bag the trig. Area to W heavily fortified with gorse/bramble/fern etc., not to be attempted from this direction - I have the scars to show for that folly! Easy from road near the 149m spot height. Then onto the pillar along field boundary, if that's your bag.jonglew21/09/2014
Parked in a lay by on very busy A30. Over a Cornish hedge, trudge over deep prickly gorse to the column 8050 in view from the road. Newquay and wind farm at Carland Cross.arranc04/04/2011
Clem top with trig in field by VERY busy & dangerous A30 constant traffic I could not cross for ages. D got a great photo of me marooned. Spot height is higher on road but trig feels higher. The wind farm across road featured in a Geography GCSE exam.Chris Pearson10/08/2010
