A worthy little Binnion.

I parked on the E flank of the hill at the place suggested by Peter Walker and followed his route to the top. Conditions in March 2015 had not changed from those experienced by Peter twelve months earlier. Once off the rough muddy track the moorland consisted of rough patches of grass and heather and a series of peat embankments interspersed with marshy ground all of which made for heavy going uphill. On the wide grassy flat top my reading for the unmarked high point was C5049704312 A. While there are expansive views across to the main Sperrins ridge and surrounding lower hills these are not unique and are views replicated from the tops of many of these lower hills. Perhaps the best comment I can make from my experience of climbing this hill is to recommend a route up and back which I followed on my descent and which eliminates the need to trudge over the rough ground highlighted by Peter walker and experienced first hand by me on my way up. On starting out , once across the gate, do not follow the rough track straight ahead but rather go left and follow the fence line around and then up past a small tree plantation. The going is much easier and less boggy that my ascent route. Once past the plantation cross over the fence and then follow it up over a mainly grassy slope to gain the summit . Return by way of ascent. Some 2.2km up and back. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1177/comment/17889/
