Park at space on north side of road at edge of plantation at north end of gap in plantations. Walk south 50 metres along road past the "slow bend" road sign then step awkwardly across the sheep fence between two small trees. Move left 5 metres to access a path going up the grassy ridge to the left of the stream coming down by the forest edge. It peters out after reaching some obvious white boulders half way up the slope but the terrain becomes easier heading for a dip in the skyline whence SW over a subsidiary top with a cairn for the actual top . Most of the mast debris near summit cairn has been removed. Easy 1.5 hours up and less than 1 hour down by same route.

Apologies - photos are in reverse order as I forgot to upload them in reverse order to get them in correct sequence :(
