A forgotten friend!

It is nice to see this summit on the database now. I climbed this summit last year while on a big walk for summiteering (PMG) (GPS track online here too). At the time the summit was not on the database. The summit is far nicer than it's neighbor Mount Leinster! I have updated the GPS coordinates too, they should be very close to the summit cairn!
