Done on Southern Upland Way.ngthack20/08/2009
dull damp heathery summit, fine view of steep slopes around Dalveen. checkpoint on 2007OMM Day2. RHW28/10/2007
Pushing hard - very hard - going for 'glory' on OMM 2007 with Darren to build up a huge 96 point lead on day 1 on Medium Score after an absolutely best ever 6 hours of hard running/planning/ navigating/ control selection when it all finally came together. Control on this hill top. I still recall the speed and screaming cramping legs and watery eyes and surging adrenaline as we 'flew' down off this hill to the finish just below. Went on to win next day - our 3rd OMM score victory in a row - (The abandoned Borrowdale OMM following year scotched hopes of short -medium - long score winning streak). All good fun.Chris Pearson27/10/2007
With May. From A702 near Overfingland. Up the Southern Upland Way and back down again. Not long after an eye operation, so didnít read the map in full detail and, as revealed subsequently by photographs, went only to the 502m point and not the true summit.mainnirnamfiadh21/09/2006
From A702, Laght Hill via SUW, then straight down & up Meikle Shag.agentmancuso31/07/2004
