Minor ridge bump with good views.
Short Summary created by simon3  26 Jun 2016
This summit is a minor bump on the ridge between Brandon and Masatimopan. It was identified as a separate summit by Martin Critchley and Sharron Schwartz at easter 2015 using a survey quality GPS.
Usually this summit will be reached as part of the longer ridge walk. If you want specifically to reach it then start from Q5082 1458 starA or Q4937 1194 starB . Both would take around 4h30 round trip. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1391/comment/17912/
