A forgotten friend!

It is nice to see this summit on the database now. I climbed this summit last year while on a big walk for summiteering (PMG) (GPS track online here too). At the time the summit was not on the database. The summit is far nicer than it's neighbor Mount Leinster! I have updated the GPS coordinates too, they should be very close to the summit cairn!

Does anyone know the history of this curious building on the col between Black Rock Mtn and Mt Leinster E Top? Passed this way back in 2013 on a very cold walk. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1389/comment/17909/

Climbed this for the first time yesterday - starting from Ballycrystal, as part of a longer route around to Mount Leinster and back. Came across the article below which provides some interesting history on the Turf-Cutters Road and Huts on the mountain.
