Easily reached with a flat boggy top.
Short Summary created by simon3  16 Sep 2010
This is a summit that isn't included in the strict 400m list because it has such a slight prominence. Its attractions include good views of the Dart / Sawel ridge and views to the west including Donegal. It is on the main ridge of the high Sperrins so will see some visits on that account. An obvious way to reach this summit is by parking at H5389 9691 starA and walking the 600m or so to the top. The top is broad with peat hags and indistinct with no cairn.

Learmount Mtn South Top
by Harry Goodman  8 Jun 2010
On 13 April 2010 I parked at one of the small pull in points H5895797010 starB near the cattle grid at the crest of the Tamnaght Road from Crannagh to Park. I followed the fence running W up hill which took me unerringly to the top of the mountain and a junction with a second fence. Having spent some time stomping about the flat top I concluded that the summit lies a short distance from this fence at H5839597103 starC, just inside the E edge of the 490m ring contour. This said the area within the contour is some 100m across and others may,with some justification, argue that the top lies to the W across the fence at H5806298278 starD or some other peaty hump. There is a fine view E across to Sawel and Dart. Descend by the way of ascent unless you also want to include Learmount Mountain in the walk (see also my comments on Learmount Mt site).

Peat Hag Hell
by Aidy  10 Mar 2015
The second summit of the day on Sunday, after Dart Mountain on the other side of the Tamnagh/Park road between Park and Cranagh. It is a very short walk from the road, and most of the height has been gained if parking at the highest point on the road near the cattle grids. The only difficulty was an area of peat hags at the summit, which I also had to navigate through on the way to my final summit, Learmount Mountain. Thankfully, torturous as it was, it wasn't that large an area and both mountains can be done easily. There are good views of the surrounding higher Sperrin peaks, and over Co. Derry.
