On the map this looks like a quick way to the summit, and so it proves, although one suspects it might be a little annoying underfoot after wet weather (I did it towards the end of the Indian summer of 2014).

There is a parking space at the start. Walk back along the A2 until a track leaves the road. Follow this even though it seems to be heading away from the objective...it soon curves around. It also soon gets overgrown and it's a matter of judgement as to exactly how far to follow it before short-cutting across to the fence aiming for the summit. This is your guide up a tussocky and sometimes wet ascent. By making judicious use of each side of it as circumstances demanded I was able to make reasonably quick and uninterrupted progress to the deeply indeterminate summit, and by returning the same way I was able to get back to the car before turning into a pumpkin.
