Easy but unexciting bag
Short Summary created by Colin Murphy, simon3, Geo  13 Aug 2019
Unfortunately this summit is isolated, Spruce covered and not terribly attractive, on the plus side it is easily bagged, using track/s the whole way. Half an hour or so will easily take it in if nearby.
Start at O0643223039 A as per sandman's instruction, but park about 50m short of the gate, where there is space for 1 car. An alternative is to take the next cul-de-sac east off the R114.Go to forest barrier at O0728823554 B where there's loads of parking. Follow the track West to the top at O0595723373 C. The summit is difficult to identify, although about 150m along the track that crosses the highest area, there is a small rise and a boulder on the right, which the GPS indicated to be the highest point.
Please note that in the shooting season (Sept to end Feb) licensed shooting may take place here. While such shooting takes place under a code of conduct walkers would be well advised to wear a red jacket, make a human noise and keep to well lit tracks where possible.
