Most of the way is on a good power line track. From the track to the summit it is a rough walk but not very difficult.

...we left the power line track and started a pathless walk up hill. The ground was rough, a few boggy parts, steep and heathery in some places but walking was not difficult:

We spent a while on the summit. There was almost no wind just a bit chilly.
We returned same way.
