Easy at first, difficult final climb.
Short Summary created by simon3, Colin Murphy, paddyhillsbagger, jackill  11 Dec 2022
Park at R92356 57035 starA, room for 3 cars. This is a forest and wind farm access track although it could be mistaken for a farm road as there are no trees visible at first. There is a pedestrian access swing gate to the left. Continue SWW along track for about 2km to roughly R91259 56239 starB, where there is a windmill and the track broadens. Climb the bank behind the windmill and head SW for about 300m across very rough ground - old clear fell, heather, reeds, uneven ground - the high point which is unmarked.
