Not a hill you will want to repeat. I was way off the beaten track amongst the heaps of clear fell devastation debris - the sort of terrain those fuzzy bigfoot videos are usually filmed in in Canada - when I had a shock encounter with a deer hunter. We both felt as though we had landed on Mars and met another human. He kindly agreed to skirt round the hill the other way and assured me I was safe - although memories of the poor mountain biker shot in error by a hunter in France rather came to mind. From east crawling required through trees until I came across a good (if boggy) deer track which in turn led to another churned up deer track and morass to the summit area - and then deer track continued east through the trees to the main track for an easy escape. All in all better than the afterwork meeting on the moderation of writing which I had managed to sidestep.Chris Pearson11/03/2020
Trees are being harvested although summit area consists of young firs and lots of blown timber.hill walker17/02/2019
