Inaccessible Due To Wind Farm Construction
by Aidy  25 Apr 2016
Unfortunately impossible to get to the summit of this hill at the time of writing. I intended to access on the wind farm road, from sandman's point D, but construction is well advanced now, with a gate and security hut at the bottom of the road. The security man was polite and friendly, but was definite on there being no chance of walking up the road as all visitors had to be authorised, signed in, and wearing safety hats etc. He wasn't sure, but was also doubtful that I could access from other directions, and said he thought the whole summit was cordoned off. I drove the short distance to the approximate start of Peter Walker's Track 2417 and managed to get a fair way up the hill, but the whole top seemed like a construction site, and was indeed cordoned off with ropes a bit further back from the works. It was a short distance anyway from the road to the summit, and I was most of the way there, with most of the height done also, so I didn't feel that I was missing out on much. The summit may be accessible again when all the windmills have been actually erected, but it looked like that could be quite a while away.
