I climbed Mouldy Hill on 5 Mar 2012 as my last but one hill on the mv Inishowen list. Having looked at the posts by those who had already been to the top I decided to follow part of gerrym's route. However, as I had no desire to walk on roads I drove up to the quarry and parked near the entrance gate at C3587330352 D. I then walked up the rough track to the left of the quarry gates. A short way up C3607829261 E I came to a locked gate bearing a somewhat mutilated notice but, even in the absence of some vital letters, clearly indicating "No Trespassing - Trespassers prosecuted" (see photo). Beyond the gate the track was fenced off on the left and unfenced to the right along a small pine forest. In view of this I took a track to the left and at its crest C3618629606 F crossed a fence and continued S up the heather clad ridge to its high point C3620029200 G before heading SW along the undulating heather covered ridge to a fence junction C3570629019 H. Once across I continued SW to another junction C3556628982 I and then in the same direction (along a fence line) to the top, a small grass and rock covered area C3537728852 J, adjacent to a small flat heathery mound. I mention this simply because some may argue that this flat topped mound is where the true high point lies and, visually, this would be arguable. This said the small rocky area has a few stones to mark the top and is I presume regarded locally as such. I returned by way of ascent. Up and down was under 5k.
