Access via the forest entrance located W0446541536 A follow the forest road a few hundred meters until you reach a well defined firebreak follow same and as you begin to reach the summit ridge be observant and you will see the outline of vehicle tracts leading towards the summit, crossing the fence where appropriate follow the tracts to old turf cuttings which will leave you a short hop to the summit.
