Simple top on the way to main summit.
Short Summary created by Geo, Colin Murphy  14 Sep 2019
The most direct approach is to park at small lay-by (1-2 cars) at L91270 65070 A and proceed directly up steep slope in SE direction. Terrain is short grass mostly, and was solid underfoot in late May. Reach the ridge at L917 640 B F after 1 hour 20 minutes and then follow the ridge to the south for 800m to attain the grassy mound at the summit, which is unmarked. Climb up steepest parts could be slippy after rain so take care or perhaps wait for a dry day.
The video is excellent and well worth watching as a flavour of what to expect.
