From the SE, at first on field path then fence lines to wooded summit. High point on levelish sheep grazed grass between scattered pines and heap of sawn boards. Great views. Descend NE down the steep slithery grass.RichardM09/01/2020
As others, enough room to park on grass verge between 2 farm gates on crossroads at 224307 - Over LH gate & steeply up left side of fence to fence junction - Stepped over fence & through lightly wooded area to unmarked summit by conifer. (S)gerrybowes09/01/2019
From crossroads to NNW. Quite steep so you can go left to reduce the gradient then double back along the top and through a small lightly wooded area. The summit is by a tree on the far side of this.clivevilla21/11/2018
