This summit is more like just a piece of high ground rather than a true summit. The top is is very flat with 2 possible tops about 300 metres apart although I think that the 532m point on the OS map is probably the correct one. As you can see from the OS map, the summit is only 2 metres above the 530m contour yet this contour covers a large area. From what I remember, the whole area was just a mixture of exposed rock, boggy ground and some small ponds, too small to be shown on a map. If anyone was interest in doing it, it might be best included as a short walk up to Knockboy. Park at 'Priests Leap' and head towards Knockboy. At the small plateau at about 540m, veer off right towards Curramore. After the 'summit', go around Lough Curramore and head up to Knockboy. Overall, the only reason for going here is to do one of the 500 metre plus peaks. There are other longer routes up around Knockboy that offer nicer views.
