My wife still shudders at the thought of this hill. A very fine viewpoint and we got excellent conditions for our walk but for someone five foot two tall the path or, more accurately, eroded gully that leads to the top does not make for a pleasant route. Still, the long shadowed views and pleasant weather compensated somewhat for the ordeal of getting to the top.
