Leaving Anglesey Mtn summit (see for first leg of walk) the route to Clermont is straightforward on a bearing of 232 degrees. Leg starts with a short drop, crossing a distinct track IJ 10190 17402 A, and subsequent rise across open moor bringing you on to the first top (444 metres) and a similar drop followed by another fairly short rise over relatively heavy gorse to take you to the main summit area, which appears to be at the highest point of a ruined wall, or a few metres beyond it at IJ 09891 17113 B coming in at 448m. (forgot to take photos on summit!). A clear narrow track leaves the summit, dropping down gently past edge of forested area. I was making for Clermont Cairn so decided to go towards the service road and then up obvious rough and stony track towards the masts. Note of caution here, from the edge of the forested area, just below Clermont, there are five or six camouflaged ‘shiucs’ - drains - (some quite deep) ready to catch the unwary.
