About War Zone:

This are was previously know to the older generation of climbers as AasvoŽlkrans.
Approach: From the car park, the Power Pylon Path is the most direct way to the top, but it is quite strenuous (climbing the 478m from the farmhouse to the trig beacon on top of the War Zone straight up). From the car park, follow the track (climbing over a locked gate by an old ruin) and at a stage the track will cross the power pylons. Somewhere there (the cairn keeps getting lost) you will find the path, which basically follows the pylons. About an hour later you should be at the top, where you will cross a small broken-down rock wall. Walk right from Sky News around the top to get to the top of the War Zone, and over the top and down the other side to get to the bottom of the War Zone.
