Small it may be but if, like me, you approach this hill in wet conditions with a low damp cloud then care will be needed. the approach right to the summit area is as straightforward as can be along forest tracks. However I discovered too late that the directions from another MV'r I was following were wrong which resulted in a horrible period crawling through dense prickly forest to right myself. This wasn't the worst though. The summit is off the track above and behind the rim of an old quarry. In the wet mist visibility was down to a few feet and it took me a little while to realize i was walking a foot or two from the unprotected edge of the quarry with a sheer fall of possibly 100 feet below. With thick vegetation underfoot a stumble is more than possible. Perhaps the cloud and mist made it appear worse than it was but I certainly recommend a high degree of caution here.
