No pigeons and not too many rocks. A soggy mound that wouldn't be out of place in Wicklow. The approach from Cock is relatively gentle, but up on the mist-shrouded summit I bumbled around a bit looking for a summit until Batts Wall loomed into view. The unmarked summit seems to be a short distance from the angle of the wall, so you can pick your own 'highest' clump of ground. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/387/comment/1610/
