Accessed via the saddle N of Rough Tor which has a good track up from the CP to the NW. Many small animal tracks then led to the summit and I was pleasantly surprised by the relatively easy going via Maiden Tor over what I thought would be ankle-twisting tussocks. Not so. Not easy, but very manageable. Persistent and nagging so'westerly was at its strongest at the summit, which is impressive. Good views all round. Third County Top this Summer!

Out bagging a High point for my UK list. I want to see how many I can bag before I reach 65. I'm 58 so I've a few years to go yet. Bagged a couple of Geocaches on route..

In my sights A split in a rock lines up with the Trig.
A lot more to go H4H Bear and his owner visit Cornwall's highest point in a quest to see how many high points can be visited before the age of 65.

Onwards from Widewalls. Weather deteriorated radically as we sat on Roughtor having lunch so were very grateful for GPS to get us across to here in a howling gale, heavy rain and zero vis. Surprisingly the cloud lifted as we reached the trig revealing stunning views although hanging on to the trig for dear life in the gale. Very good permissive path to Garrow and back to Churchtown. All s/h and centre open but otherwise vgc.

Shame the view was rather spoiled by the low cloud but it provided some fun navigation over Rough Tor to get to the summit. The extra breezy conditions cleared the cloud a bit on the way back so we got some views and we were largely dry. With Shorty & Extra Shorty.

What a hike to get to this. Parked in the car park near Rough Tor on Poldue Downs then set off up Rough Tor. The going got a little bit tougher towards the summit especially with all the big rocks laying about. After puffing & panting to the top I was gutted when I saw how far I still had to go to get to the summit of Brown Willy. Took the most direct route down but should have paid more attention as I didn't notice the stream at the bottom so had to look for a place to get across it. Mid way up brown willy the cloud came down & visibility was reduced to about 50 meters but managed to find the summit. Pillar was in good condition but had the cap missing. Unfortunetly couldn't see the views from up there because the cloud didn't clear until I was half way back down the mountain but have to say the views from Rough Tor alone was worth the effort

It\'s in there somewhere

vgc, broken asphalt plug. Nice summit albeit outclassed by Rough Tor which I'd been to in 2002. This time took track from W: signs are progressively GOMLy. CROW access doesn't seem to have penetrated this far: SSSI: permissive path which seems to come via Rough Tor and is doubtless more scenic, although I followed path back to main track W. Early Sun a.m. no-one about, aother than a couple of other runners on the hill.
