This is a route I have done before, but for whatever reason I don't seem to have a trip report for the previous ascent though the hill has been ticked off. It has changed since I was last up with the trees felled higher up and some new tracks cutting corners to head out onto the open summit area. Nice quick walk though a lot of steps up the initial steep part! A number of gliders and some small planes out enjoying the weather too.

Man, I wish I could have been up there this morning with the dog instead of being back at the coal face! :(
