Wed 21/8/2013, Having read no comments about this hill, I arrived at point A as described jackill, followed the route to point B then followed this track uphill to point C, it was quite misty so I decided to hug the forest to my left and follow it to the top, this was quit steep initially and treacherous as there were chest high ferns covering hidden boulders strewn about here, after carefully negotiating two knolls the going got a bit easier and eventually I reached the summit. It was quite windy with low cloud. It looked might it might clear so I stayed a while and was rewarded with fine views towards Coumshingaun. Trying to find an easier way down i spotted the grassy ramp mentioned by jackill and made my way downhill through some tall ferns initially and then onto track back to car.
