Best done as a solo trip as hard to link with other routes. Parked in a layby and walked up road to a gate. Climbed over and went slightly left of the mountain to use the "greenways' so classic of the Caha moutains. These are green areas sandwiched betweenthe often signficiant drops of redsandstone. Going up I went straight up which involved some scrambling.Fantastic views all directions. Small summit cairn. I descended on a more "gentle' slope by following the water course, initially staying to the right of it then crossing once became less steep and contoured around the lower slopes. Great day out!
