Short walk to the trig pillar
Short Summary created by Aidy,  4 Oct 2015
The top can be easily accessed from the Evish Road on the southern slopes from H 37403 97064 A. I sought and was given permission to cross the fields at the nearby house. The summit is around H 37297 97597 B and is marked by a trig pillar which has had a metal cross cemented on top. Only 5 minutes from the road.
