The upside of winter
by Colin Murphy  6 Jan 2022
I approached from the previously mentioned N 1962702722 starA, passing through an unlocked gate (and making the assumption that the 'Authorised Personnel Only' sign was to deter anyone with evil intent!) and followed the forest road all the way to a clearing at N198 035 starB. Just east of this is another smaller clearing, from which a grassy forest ride meanders its way east towards the top, eventually leading to a wire fence on the left (which had clearly been crossed multiple times). This led to a track of sorts that rounded the summit area, vegetation preventing access, but eventually opened up to on the left, allowing access to a small area covered by what I think are European Beech trees. The high point was just to the right of this area. Although an otherwise dull hill, it was transformed into a magical setting thanks to overnight snow and frost.
