"New layout on MV of summit names for Tievummera." from simon3 Contract pics
Picture: New layout on MV of summit names for Tievummera. (Contract pics)

Tievummera, Sheefrys change. Needs action.
Context of comment:On surveying Tievummera in the Sheefrys it turned out that the trig pillar is nowhere near the highest point. It's actually some 600m further west.
So we have labelled the previously named "Tievummera" summit "Tievummera Trig". All the comments and your recorded logs etc are retained. However since it isn't the highest point, it isn't the Arderin or Vandeleur-Lynam.

To handle this we have created a new summit for the real highpoint, called "Tievummera Highpoint" , Taobh Iomaire (pointe is airde).

This will now be the main summit which when logged, will add to your Arderin or Vandeleur-Lynam count if summiteering interests you.

Doing this is also an aid in misty weather. Should you be traversing the ridge E to W, you will now avoid the previous oddity which was that you encounter the trig pillar but continue to rise for no apparent reason.
Message:For summiteers, you need, if you have previously visited Tievummera, now to log visiting Tievummera Highpoint. Most people who visited the trig top will also have walked over the highpoint.

Carrickbyrne Hill: Very overgrown but passable
DeirdreM 2 days ago.
The trail up to the summit is very overgrown since the last comments but can still be spotted. A small machete would do the trick. No views at all from the top with all the growth.

Tievummera Highpoint: An obvious stop along the ridge

The real highpoint stands close to the edge of the cliffs and is actually an obvious stop between Tievummera trig point and Barrclashcame.
