Look out for the faint track for an easier summiteering experience!
by csd  17 Jul 2011
I started at the graveyard, you need to turn right at the path that runs along the back of the cemetary, and go through the gate onto the quarry access road. The quarry is long-disused, but not a place for children to play, so keep any kids you have with you under close supervision. The track that gives access to the summit area heads off to the left just at the point you enter the main quarry.

Maybe it's down to legions of MVers beating a path to the summit, but I was able to pick up a faint trail that led from behind the quarry up to the summit, which greatly eased my journey to the summit. Lovely views from the summit.
