Seeing cattle in the field on the route as described by sandman I thought I'd be really smart and climb from the road as shown. Seeing that there was an impassible amount of furze/gorse I skirted around and onto a farm road. Seeing a cow track upwards through the vegetation I followed it. Big mistake! My route upwards became extremely difficult. Anyway I reached the trig and descended very easily once I had a better idea of the terrain. It would be fine to follow the return leg of my trip and there is room for one car at the farm/forest road entrance.
