Longish walk but worth the effort.
Short Summary created by Colin Murphy  13 Jun 2024
One approach is from the track via the south. There is space to park 1 car by the side of the road at the junction of two minor roads, at G69039 77436 starA. Head north up the track for about 3.5km, which will take you to the col around G67807 79529 starB and 340m elevation. Turn NE up the gently rising slope for 2km, the terrain undulating somewhat and adding to the climb. The summit is an unmarked but fairly well defined area of boulders and grass, with a small pool nearby. Fine views in every direction. If done in isolation allow 2.5-3 hours for return journey.
