Ascent Trip ReportHaving grown up in nearby Bristol I've been aware of and wanted to climb this small but notable hill all my life but somehow just never managed to do it. Certainly my parents never saw the point of country walks and by the time I was of independent means I lived a long way away. Fully aware of the hordes of tourists and associated parking problems that blight the summer I vowed to pass by out of season.
I found a parking spot in Ashwell Road and hiked due north up the hill on a beautiful clear blue-sky day but with a brisk cool breeze. Amazingly I had the top to myself much of the time and clear views over the town, immediate vicinity and far over the Somerset Levels - not quite a place for solitary spiritual contemplation these days but very fine nonetheless.
