Made this summit from Sugarloaf Hill, by following the county boundary wall/earthen bank to approximately S054091 A then taking a bearing and using the compass to help us through the heavy rain and gales as we took in this summit. If it weren't for the fact that it's in the highest 100 on MV, I'm not altogether sure, I'd have bothered as, by this stage the day was shaping up to be the wettest of my hill walking career to date, but in hindsight I'm glad I bagged it when the opportunity was there!. We (just about!) got a photo taken of me and the summit cairn, before doing a volte face and returning approximately to the spot we turned off the county boundary, turning SSE again and making for Knockmealdown.
