Wooded summit with a few good views and large telecoms installations.
Short Summary created by simon3,  8 Sep 2014
This is a mainly wooded summit with an extensive telecoms setup at the top. There are some views. Park at the forest entrance around S6711 4589 A. The shortest way up is to walk back along the road to S 6694 4570 B where there is a steep vehicle track leading directly to the summit.
It is also possible to walk along a forest road to the summit from the forest entrance. Enter the forest and take the first turn left. This route goes round the NW ridge that extends from the summit before reaching the top. Do not attempt to take any tempting short cut through the trees because there is extensive wind damage with blown-over trees sometimes covered in brambles.
