I followed three5four0's excellent directions, and thus tackled Inch Top WOULD provide a really lovely rural stroll in gorgeous surroundings to an excellent panoramic viewpoint...but for the 'jungle' section.

Alas, there really is no way around this, and believe me I was glad of my relative advantages in terms of height and legspan. A bit of scouting around and back and forwarding should mean you suffer at worst a few minutes of acute discomfort (rather than an eternity of agony and damnation), but this is still a route to commend heartily to one's worst enemy...especially if they tend to wear shorts.
