Short, sharp climb from the western side
Short Summary created by Colin Murphy  28 Oct 2011
Summit may be tackled from its western side, parking at G747490 A, where approaching along the road from the north there is space for a single car on the left hand side of the road, beside which is unfenced open countryside. Head directly west for approx 1km across gently sloping, fairly marshy ground (it was navigable in October after heavy rain). The slope begins to rise steeply at G756490 B, but the going is mostly firm underfoot. The gradient eases a little at G765490 C or approx 450m elevation, eventually levelling out onto a broad summit plateau at 580m elevation. Turn directly north and the summit cairn is reached after an 800m trek across gently sloping, intermittently marshy and solid ground. Time from car to cairn, roughly 1hr 15m.
