From Wether Hill, with gorse and barbed wire fences en route. Lower slopes have fallen trees and summit area has gorse thickets, but there's a more open area on the west side. Spot height on 25k looks about right place.govanah04/05/2023
Parked at wide snowy entrance to Knabbymoss knowing that no one was home. Walked up track, below house, to field beyond, then SW to the forest edge. Having read previous logs, and observed the windthrow I went anti-clockwise round the hill to the N, hoping the marked clear way would work. Alas not. I did however take to the forest. It was 30 minutes of very hard work, up, over, along, under and through the branches of fallen trees. All made harder by 5cm snow. I would not recommend trying this hill for fun. Then to top it off once clear of windthrow trees the summit is defended by a maze of gorse. Thick trousers and jacket recommended. Being already 20mins late to pick up DD and MM (sorry guys), I determined that retracing my steps was far too time consuming. And arduous! So seeing standing trees to the south I headed that way and ploughed my way through the snow covered and very prickly gorse. Not recommended, but needs must. Possibly my worst Tump ever.Minto08/12/2022

From Wether Hill, thick gorse surrounds much of the open summit but got to the top from the north side in the end. Three high points close together, two covered in gorse and not pleasant to access (signs of other baggers forcing a way through).Dave McG12/09/2018
