Extra one or two traversed ?

I did the same Six Hill circuit as everyone else. However I agree with Iain T's comment that maybe there could be additions to the list as there was certainly extra ascents and descents around the Sugarloafs. This hill would only be done in conjuction with the others in essence Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1428/comment/20935/
