In need of some rocks

Approached Caherbarnagh NW from Knocknagowan via Caherbarnagh, I had planned to head on to Knocknabro and back up the road in Clydagh valley, but the going is so tough over the tussocky boggy ground from Clydagh I decided to head back the way I came.
The views to the North are lovely and the valley between Caherbarnagh NW and Caherbarnagh looks like a great climb, I'm sure it's horribly slippery though.
Reaching the summit of Caherbarnagh NW, I came across a tiny cairn which needs some urgent help, so if you've got some room in your backpack for a few rocks, you know what to do. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/157/comment/6745/
