The route mainly utilises the waymarked Moyle Way, crossing the fence (stile) and turning left at the ridge before using another stile higher up to access the interesting summit area. In clear weather the footfalls of those who have come this way before are reasonably obvious; in mist one might find that the waymarks are MUCH too far apart to be sufficient to navigate by. The lower ground is very wet in parts, and the upper slopes are somewhat peat-hagged (but easier).
