Summit grows by 2 metres and heads east!
by three5four0  10 Aug 2010
On my way to investigate the claims for Knockeirys exclusion in the Arderins list, I naturally took in Knockowen and Cushnaficulla on the way there. Whilst pondering in my mind, that it probably was not a good idea to stay in a certain well known pub to the small hours of the morning, and then go hillwalking the next day, let alone to do it 7 nights in a row. I noticed that whilst my map, and the MV listed the spot height as 594m and on the West top, my Satamap software gave a second spot height of 596m on the East top of Cushnaficulla. So, not only a gain of 2 metres, but a move to the east for the summit! As the mapping is supplied to Satamap by OSI, does the new series maps have this extra spot height on them? And more to the point has anyone just visited the east top and not the west?, no sniggering at the back there! Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/287/comment/5998/
