This is a relatively arbitrary route up this particular side of Eglish, starting from a gate in the fence on the minor road heading NNE from the B49. Initially I took dubious 'advantage' of a track that is currently precariously balanced between 'existing' and 'not existing' before slanting up left once clear of a conspicuous plantation (also on the left). A couple of fences protect the summit area, best crossed where they meet....said summit area is as lumpy and indeterminate as most in the Sperrins.

I returned the same way...kind of (the terrain is much of a muchness, and given the weather's recent refusal to leave the rinse cycle that means it's lushly vegetated and horribly wet).
