Rough and tumble
by Colin Murphy  8 Dec 2022
As mentioned in the short summary the first 2km SSW along the track is a pleasant stroll. Then it took me roughly the same time to traverse the final 300m to the summit. The last section from R91259 56239 starB is across extremely rough ground consisting of very old clear fell, scutch grass, heather and reeds, all on uneven ground - I fell twice in 300m and was also prodded numerous times by old branches. One happy circumstance is that the ground was frozen, otherwise I'd imagine this would be even worse. The cold, wintry weather also brightened some of the landscape considerably.
