Hope Mountain farm / access

Looking at activating Hope Mountain. Reading the reports getting permission from Mr Bannister is the key.
Is the the farm I need to aim for to get access?



That’s not the Hope Mountain you are looking for!

John, I’m puzzled by your map. You seem to be centred on a much lower subsidiary summit which is not in the AZ.

Search for it on https://sotl.as or www.sotamaps.org

I think I have spotted my mistake…I was in the wrong place. I should be lower down the map! I did the daft thing of relying on GoogleMaps to put me in the rough location.
No wonder the info in other posts didnt quite make sense!

Hi John,

If you take a look on https://sotl.as the farm you are looking is this one


Interesting comment :

No cakes and no heifers. A couple of puzzled horses looked on as I strolled passed them.
One semi-sighted dog came to say hi.

Blimey is that mutt still alive? I think it’s been there every year I’ve done Hope Mountain for SOTA right back to 2003!

Still alive and saying hi. Does’nt like to be stroked.

@m1eyp - When you were operating from GW-NW/044 earlier (14:23 in my log) I was parked up at IO83MF

Glad the dog is still alive.
When I activated the summit earlier in the year people were out searching as it had gone off on an adventure and hadn’t come back at the agreed time.


Ok Obi Wan…
