Ascent Trip Report

300m south of Oliver Drive in the Middle of a cornfield.

Located at the Northeast corner of the County, Northwest of London. From London travel east on Fanshave Park Road E to a left turn (north) on Clark Road, on the corner is the Fanshave Golf Club. Travel 2.8km north to a right turn on Medway Road (#28) and another 10.2km (pass Thorndale) to a left turn on Purple Hill Road. Drive north for 3.1km to a right turn (east) on Oliver Road, just before the crest of the Road at 1km, park the car ..... this is the TH from the north, the obvious High Point is visible about 300m due South in a corn field.
Between the TH at the road and the High Point in a corn field there is a huge whitebean field. I walked back down the road about 100m around the perimeter of the whitebean field in order to get closer to the High Point, within 50m.
Another of those High Point that have to be done after harvest.

Alternately, after the harvest, access can be made from due east starting at Cherry Hill Road, distance is the same, 300m.

I used fellow Peakbagger Rob Hiemstra's directions as a guide.
