From east on permissive path.Unusual summit area but grand views.With Oscar.catman06/02/2020
As others from east. Quarry area has a new fence.PGCE26/05/2019
Using the permissive path from NY507436.summitsup28/04/2019
Printed this off in 2015 but only did it today-from ENE on permissive path. Very atmospheric top in ruined sandstone quarryMark Sims24/04/2019
18:00 and my last fell of the day. Also the only Hump and it earns its status - a mini massif. Parked at works entrance to SE and followed track. Thought I'd get told off by farmer on atv but didn't. Followed cairns that, given the size of the boulders they were made from, I presumed had been made by giants, for I could not conceive how else they could have been built. Upon reaching the summit area I realized that it was a disused quarry wondered if perhaps some mechanical device had, in fact been used. Reclaimed by nature :o) Gazed across the appropriately named Vale of Eden, bathed in evening sunlight. A fitting end to three good day's walking.Wycombe Wanderer21/04/2019
Approach from E along permissive route. Lots of red sandstone boulders & spoil heaps around summit area - at least one boulder stack looks higher than summit. Distant views unfortunately in mist.ger07/04/2019
Good verge parking to E. at high point of road at 508437 - Through gate opposite & followed permissive path across sheep pasture to quarry access gate at 498432 - Path through disused quarry to spoil heap (the high point) & then a short distance to trig point. (S)gerrybowes10/10/2018

Permissive path from minor road to NW. Trig pillar at top. A few very large boulders on top of each other form a slightly higher point to the SE, but stacked by the hand of man.jonglew30/07/2017
As per Smudge's northern route from access board on the roadside. Aim away from pylons to near break in the copse at NY490436.Eddie26/06/2017
