SK2928479985 Turn left at the top of the minor road and continue climbing!

SK2849878824 Go over the first cairn, slightly down and then a very short climb to go around the trig point.

SK2958280232 A fast, long descent that goes from a dirt trod to a stony track down through the woods. Turn right onto a track for a final short climb.
