One thing you may notice in a number of places on this hill is some fine stone walls made out of flattish pieces of rock. In the eighteenth century there was a slate quarry on the hill which is presumably the reason.

The least prickly way we found up is to start at the same entrance as mentioned by Wicklore and then go to S94784 59331 B where there is an unpromising looking track leading SE. Take this and after about 90m of not-great-but-passable track beside an old wall you will emerge into open ground. Go around 230m SW along the fence and you will be at the top.
