Hill 2 in a very windy day and this was the highest wind we experienced on the day. Luckily it was a cross wind so we could progress by leaning sideways at 45 degrees going both ways. At times no progress could have been made if this was a headwind.

On the hill page, a number of contributors mention the private road at V369697 and its intimidating signs. We refused to be intimidated - it is just a mast service road, and relatively well surfaced - and drove up, reducing the out and back distance to 3k with a negligible climb.

The summit as indicated in MV, is in a slightly different spot than we chose as the summit - I did not take a conscious read on the position but it's a little North of where indicated in MV.
