Park near the start off the road which was retarred in 2012. There is space for a few cars without blocking gates.
You can ascend straight up beside a fence and later a wall. Or you can take a loop using the forest track (NW from the start as shown) which will bring you to around 300m.
I met a farmer checking fences who was probably a little startled to see me. While concerned about his fences he said I was welcome to climb the hill.
