Short Summary created by simon3, march-fixer,  1 Oct 2012
An easily accessible summit reached mostly from the Banagher Forest access track (just south of Altbritain Forest). This forest track starts at C7068 0028 A on the B40 road just 100m NW of the Glenedra Bridge.

While the views from it are excellent, the summit itself lacks visual impact. The summit is quite flat and soggy as the ground here takes time to disperse the copious rainfall. There is a handy 'catching feature' of a fence that runs all the way over to Meenard. This mountain top has an elongated oval shape, lying in an SW-NE direction, and is the natural attack point on the way to Meenard from this direction, or as part of a horse-shoe circuit to Oughtmore and Craigagh Hill which should not take more than 5 hours.

Parking for possibly 2 cars beside the track entrance (soft verge) or for up to 3 cars at the quarry entrance 100m away SE towards Glenedra Bridge, provided you can pull up onto the rough grassy verge. Take care not to obstruct any gates.

Geology: The Sperrin Mountains are made up of schists and quartzites - metamorphic rocks which form an assemblage of ice-marginal morainic ridges and glaciofluvial terrace fragments that occurs in the rock cut col between the glacially eroded slopes of Mullaghmore and Mullaghaneany mountains.
