Minor ridge bump with good views.
Short Summary created by simon3,  26 Jun 2016
This summit is a minor bump on the ridge between Brandon and Masatimopan. It was identified as a separate summit by Martin Critchley and Sharron Schwartz at easter 2015 using a survey quality GPS.
Usually this summit will be reached as part of the longer ridge walk. If you want specifically to reach it then start from Q5082 1458 A or Q4937 1194 B . Both would take around 4h30 round trip. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1391/comment/17912/

A Critchley and Schwartz Film
by CaptainVertigo  25 Apr 2015
Critchley and Schwartz deserve to have this peak named after them because in Easter 2015, during their three day trek over the ridge, the duo took out their measuring equipment and declared the place a Vandeleur Lynam. Normally I become agitated at the thought of folks adding new peaks to my lists, least I have to go back and "do it all again" but on this occasion I was delighted as i had already been there in August 14.
The still shows the pair on the way up to BFNT from Masatiompan and Piaras Mor. I love that long narrow ascent. On your left (east) you have the wonder of Brandon Bay and Castlegregory. On your right (as per the film still) you have the glory or Ballydavid Head and the Blaskets.
One of Ireland's greatest walks, and a film that does it justice.
