Drowning is never easy
Short Summary created by simon3, jackill,  12 Dec 2012
Start at the track to Shrone at W145 840 A where there is room to park 4-5 cars. Follow the track for approx 600 mtrs and turn off it onto a track that is not marked on the map , it looks like the farmer has constructed it in the last few years. This track allows you to gain some height (100 mtrs approx.) before you strike out across open mountain(or should that be bog). The summit is gained by a hard slog over rutted ground with very wet conditions underfoot. The summit it self is marked only by a small pond.
