Picture: Looking from Scalp Mountain to Grannia's Gap
A tough two hours
by Peter Walker  20 Oct 2010
I can confirm the feasibility of Harry Goodman's musings regarding an ascent from Grannia's Gap: park just west of the top of the road where a track leads north (through a gate) to the disused quarry noted under Eskaheen Mountain: I squeezed the car off the road opposite this. A clamber over a gate led to open hillside.

Now, I know it's heresy to suggest it, but the experience leads me to suggest using the elsewhere-mentioned access road for the ascent. My route from the Gap is not horrendously hard, but whether or not you stick to the ridgeline or else attempt to cut across the slope to the final col there's still that annoying feeling of expending much more effort than should really be necessary for a shortish distance and a limited height gain: thick, energy-sapping grass is the order of the day for much of the walk. On my return I decided to cut my losses by using the track marked as starting at (420 271 G) (but actually starting from almost the ridge) and then walking up the Grannia's Gap road to regain my car: this was much easier, and fortunately proceeding in this direction meant I didn't see the 'No Trespassing' signs until I reached said tarmac!
