Most of this ascent is via good forest tracks, although the tracks take you to within 500m of the summit, there is a section of rough ground to traverse. There is parking for several cars at the start point.Follow the forest track up a zig-zagging line, ignoring two turns on the left. The last few hundred metres of the track deteriorate badly, particularly in winter, and you may have to pick your way through some very muddy patches. Continue along the track until it emerges from the woods on to open hillside.Turn NE and follow a fence for about 400m until the slope eases off. Look for a very narrow trail through the grass on your left and follow this to the NW for about 300m, veering off to the left about 50m from high point to reach the summit cairn.A bad day when I did it, but there were hints this could be an interesting hill, mainly because of the precipitous SW side right next to high point.(Please note, due to a poor GPS signal, the route my app produced does not reflect completely accurately the actual route I took.)
