Easy path from the north but hard work on a very hot afternoon. Lovely little hillColin Crawford04/09/2023
From large carpark south of Sulby with Rob , Jon and Richard to celebrate our joint last Manx tump- plus Darren Giddins , there in spirit. Sunny day with dancing, cake Manx kipper pate and whisky.Denise 02/10/2022
Footpath from road to N. Steep grassy climb to hill fort summit. A great hill to complete the Manx Tumps on. A simultaneous completion with Denise and Jon - thanks for waiting for us Jon.RichardM02/10/2022
From extensive grassy parking area to E (SC 3870 9416). Road to signed track up to lovely steep sided hill fort. Returned on the less steep path. With Richard & Denise the 3 of us IoM All Hills completers, and Rob W who completed a few days earlier. An excellent end to 9 days bagging on the island.jonglew02/10/2022
From N, stile, path soon bends R with good path steeply to summit, also visited W summit 2m lower. Wellies handled steep damp grassy descent nicely.RHW27/09/2022
Excellent directions from Vegibagger. Stile access at SC 3917 9432carole engel06/09/2018
1st of 9 tumps on a 36.7km traverse from Sulby to Peel. I caught the bus to Sulby (leaving large rucksack in Douglas for 3 days)taking a footpath south over the river to a minor road, tracking left to find a suitable place to climb over the boundary wall and into an open field I then headed South profiling around the considerable Gorse defences before climbing over near some pine trees and then pushing through the head high bracken and gorse to reach the impressive Crag where a scramble takes you to the West top that I subsequently recorded as being 98m @ SC 39131 94122. I continued on to the East top, it being immediately adjacent some dense gorse thicket (i got in the thick of it)recording 97m @ SC 39200 94132. Descent as per Vegibagger route back onto the road following it West then veering off on a track before the road heads over the River Sulby. Next top: Karrin Hill...Dazingdale16/07/2018
From N. Returned by vegibagger's route but was unable to resist attractive direct ascent.jimbloomer19/10/2016
After arriving in the dark and kipping in my car on a little road just to the east, woke to wander into the field opposite and see it for the first time. Then drive down to its only access point path middle of the north side opposite yellow painted rendered entrance walls. Once hitting the steep cone the path veers west narrowly though gorse. Resist the temptation to scramble steeply up direct to the summit. Instead continue west and then south round the western edge on this narrow path through gorse. Path then comes out into remains of small quarry and crags with a little bit of graffiti goes down a little and across and round the south side of the hill before then finally going directly up to the col between slightly rocky and nicer west top and more grassy actual summit to the east. Fabulous little hill.vegibagger26/07/2016
