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/
