Sharp Shooter
by paddyhillsbagger  10 Jun 2014
Followed Fergalh's route which led up to an overgrown rocky outcrop with plenty of fallen trees. Looking around for a suitable high-point proved tough in the difficult terrain and I eventually settled on a small pile of red cartridges on a mossy rock (just visible in right bottom corner of photo). Not being a GPS user I can't confirm the co-ordinates but anyone getting this far in the undergrowth has done well. Obviously the sharp shooter thinks so too!
