When is the top really the top!
Having read conor74's comments questioning the "definitive" top of Cruach Mhor I would suggest that the high point of any hill/mountain is the "natural" high point and not the artificial top of a "man-made" structure such as the grotto. Another example is Slieve Donard in the Mournes where the trig pillar sits atop the shelter tower at the corner of the Mourne Wall, is undoubedly the highest point around, but is not, in my view, the true summit. Indeed the most recent edition of The Mournes 1;25,000 map notes the "trig pillar" at 853m and the "living rock" high point at 849m. In earlier editions of this map the high point was given as 850m and this is the currently accepted MV referenced high point. While there may therefore be debate re the 849m/850m highpoint there is no debate, I assume, about disregarding the artificially created 853m trig point as the high point on Donard. Any other views?

Robber's Pass Hill: Minor heathery lump. Overcivilised and underwhelming.
Collaborative entry Last edit by: simon3 4 days ago.
This oddly named hill is more a very minor heathery bump incorporated into the system of tracks laid out by the Wicklow Mountains National Park. It can be reached from any of the western car-parks...
