Short Summary created by jackill,  4 Jan 2012
Start at R 983 089 A where there is a decent carpark .
Cross the tarred road at the carpark and you will see a track leading east across the bog which leads you onto the main Avondhu way track,
You can also turn north on the tarred road and walk 200 meters to where the Avondhu way crosses the road.
Once on this rocky way follow it uphill for approx 2 kms until you gain a plateau at 600 mtrs elevation.
The track at this point can be followed straight ahead(north) or to the right(west).
Turn right and cross the plateau until the track starts to go downhill again at a waymarked way post.
Turn north here for the summit co-ordinates.
This gives you the easiest line of ascent to the summit.
Manmade standing stones are visible around the trig pillar with a massive stone mound behind.
This was known locally as the heap of stones, above the valley known as the Prisun.
Most of the stone is banked higher on the north side with a lower bank of stone to the south.One or two suggestions have been made regarding the heap - they were collected so that a fire could be lit to welcome some British monarch - very unlikely. Firewood is non existent up here. The other one is that they were used as signal fires, lighting fires on hilltops is well documented in relation to the druids and earlier. Remember St Patrick and the fire on the hill of Tara. There are little cells built into the stone, this heap would have provided some protection from the weather and would be manned permanently .
