A faint ATV track starts up from NY313314, but soon peters out in the deep heather, intermittently reappearing further up. The heather is just short of being purgatorial, so it's probaly less effort overall to use the ATV track up on to Coomb Height and lose a little height traversing around the top of the gullies.Isbjorn18/10/2018
