Did this hike as night was falling after climbing Scarr. Like others we used the access road until it is apparent that one has to leave the road at a bend and head downhill before aiming directly uphill to the summit. We decided against continuing to the ridge line from the road and following that to the summit. Bog holes, stream and loads of peat hags and tussocky grass made for a fun hike..the onset of darkness was a blessing as one could not see how depressing this type of terrain was.
