This is a bespoke route for those who missed the northern VLs on a previous expedition. The highlight for me was the narrow curving staircase to the North East Top. Stairway to heaven stuff...
Getting back to where it all began...I parked at the place suggested by one of our colleagues, which is frighteningly close to houses. It was "earlyish". I made sure the car would not be in any one's way and gingerly crept towards the leafy lane that led to the Dingle Way. This involved passing a very nice bungalow, praying that no dog would bark. No dog did bark, but a bright light came on and a disembodied voice said words to the effect of: "You are being recorded by a video security monitoring device". After that terrifying beginning the rest was easy...well everything except the bit where I lost the Dingle Way for a while. Oh and please look out for the swamp around Q 7542810470...Its on the Dingle Way so you really can't miss it!

NOTE: ALL information such as Ascent, Length and Creator time taken etc should be regarded as approximate. The creator's comments are opinions and may not be accurate or still correct.
Your time to complete will depend on your speed plus break time and your mode of transport. For walkers: Naismith's rule, an approximate though often inaccurate estimate, suggests a time of 3h 49m + time stopped for breaks
NOTE: It is up to you to ensure that your route is appropriate for you and your party to follow bearing in mind all factors such as safety, weather conditions, experience and access permission.
