vgc, resin(?) plug, grass & heather summit. From SSW, road jct, seem to have taken the gated rather than stiled route this time. Pasture until last wall. My penultimate LR78 trig: just a Hart Fell revisit remaining.

Parking on main road due W, simple and pleasant ascent alongside stone wall crossed by various dubious-looking rickety wooden stiles.

Appeared to be an easy direct amble up very open and highly visible farmland, so took a longer more circuitous route on edge of woods slightly further south.
