Worth the visit.
by David-Guenot  11 Jun 2016
This summit is really worth a visit and can be easily bagged on the way between Bucan and Leenaun Hill. It has fine views, mainly over the main Maumturks ridge to the S. The cairn-topped summit is rather featureless, but the mountain looks quite impressive as seen from down in the Bunowen valley to the SW (see pic).
