A Long Hard Slog

Park at laneway to old farmhouse now in ruin at W15905 83498 C. Room for 1-2 cars to park. Climb gate at entrance and follow post and wire fence heading north until W16029 84252 D. From there head across open hillside in a NNW direction. It is slow going across long grass and heather cover to the summit. As you gain altitude you will meet another post and wire fence coming up from the west, i.e. on your left hand side. Follow fence to summit which is located along the fence line. No obvious marker for summit other than a nearby very small lake, which on the day of the walk was almost dry. Fantastic views across the Blackwater Valley and to the west towards The Paps.
