Calling it a mountain seems like a wild exaggeration when you are standing next to the "bump". Of course the surrounding land is already high above the Annalong vally. The easist way there is via Round Seefin and Long Seefin, just follow the wall. Lots of evidence of quarrying activity, and a few suitable campsites in the area. Unfortunately this has led to a few bits of litter along the wall. Do us all a favour - take it home. Seriously, if everyone take one piece of litter home, we'll soon clear it up.
