As per jenx. Choice of two forestry track ends for parking by road to south-east. Followed vague paths to high point and then winding route through gorse to trig. Used clippers to remove a few gorse from upper gorse jungle!willyross17/01/2020
From parking to SE. Gap in fence leads to old track line which helpfully goes most of way, though pretty indistinct. Managed to find trig in gorse eventually. With B and R.jenx26/10/2019

Way in from north through the gorse is a bit maze like currently but once found not too painful.Dave McG16/03/2018
Parked to SE & squelched up to summit area using an initially vague track. On reaching the top, I nearly convinced myself that trig had gone but after 30 painful minutes, a final foray into the gorse from around the N edge revealed both the ancient cairn & miscreant trig. Although a way in has been sculpted by keen triggers, it could do with a fresh prune.Smudge23/12/2017
I think the Bar in Lethen Bar stands for barred by gorse. Even when I could see the trig from a couple of metres away it was still difficult to get to as the gorse is so thick now. No views either. Nice dummy day though.Peterb25/10/2017
What 🗻 mountaineering is all about. Of gorse, it is.Martin R22/03/2016
Wet soggy slog across boggy heather and close growing trees. Only tackled it to get the trig.BigJ28/09/2014

Here for the trigpoint. TP:UK log: Parked and found man path up to this, last 100m hard going through gorse of which we cleared a fair amount and the trig is now visible with a path from a northish direction, no view at trig due to tree cover.thejackrustles04/05/2014
Ascended from the high point on the road to the east. A rough hill, but there are paths and the summit is fairly obvious, though covered with gorse.JohnW20/04/2013
Bog, deep heather, dense pine, gorse summit - this one has the lot. No view. from track/roadd jct to NE, parking at jct RHW11/04/2006
