Followed this track on 26/07/2022. Parked as per above, no one around to ask about access, but I was able to pull in well onto grass verge between two farm yard entrances. I was initially sceptical about possibility of bracken. The mountain looked very green from afar. Pleasantly surprised to find no bracken whatsoever on this route. Low grass and heather initially - it looks like the lower part of the commonage was burnt in recent past and is re-growing. Further uphill the heather thickened, but it was never a serious obstacle.
Up and down in about 2 hrs. My tracker says 5.6km but ascent of 550m. Plenty of sheep around. Cattle penned into a grassy field which is bypassed.
