The only reason to visit Barranisky is as part of your Local 100 hills - the torture necessary to reach the top is outlined on the hill page, but here, I think, is the first track.

Various visitors, most recently eamonoc, have commented on the expanding vegetation; indeed it was eamonoc's recent comment that it might be inaccessible in a couple of years that pushed me to visit.

The route is clear enough, but a couple of points to emphasise:
1. At the cottage T25533 79336 - the entrance to the gorse track is DIRECTLY opposite the gable of the house - the gorse is pretty high here, but go through you must.
2. The track stops after 300m - stops Dead - drop to your hands and knees and crawl through, tending right.
3. People have been here before!!!! The route is not easy but it is generally obvious - follow it - half hands and knees - half crouch.
4. The trig is nestled in gorse and can only be approached from your direction - the fact that it is can be reached at all is only because others have been there.

Simply retrace your steps!

Note: ALL information such as Ascent, Length and Creator time taken etc should be regarded as approximate. The creator's comments are opinions and may not be accurate or still correct.
Your time to complete will depend on your speed plus break time and your mode of transport. For walkers: Naismith's rule, a rough and often inaccurate estimate, suggests a time of 1h 12m + time stopped for breaks
Note: It is up to you to ensure that your route is appropriate for you and your party to follow bearing in mind all factors such as safety, weather conditions, experience and access permission.
