Started from V761840 A, cross the bridge, then across fields, later to ascend the spur starting at approx. V750836 B to the left of the fence. At about 370m, I crossed the fence to the right, as the terrain is slightly easier. However, rounding a grassy knoll, a glare of sunshine hit me, I looked up - lo and behold - sat a bull! I drifted back toward the fence as the bull got up to descend the knoll. Then in front of me was another grassy knoll, and behind it stood ... another bull! I just about made it over the fence as the bulls strode toward me. So word of advice: anyone climbing this hill may want to walk left of the fence even if the terrain is slightly rougher ...
