Picture: Rocky area at summit
Short steep climb

From Knockatinna I headed west and descended towards the river dividing the two small hills. Despite being small much care was needed as it is extremely steep. On ascent to less steep section, i followed edge of fence which loops around to the rocky summit marked with a small cairn. There appears to be a rough track leading from the south here through farmhouses which seems better. Descended to west and followed the road back to south of Knocknatinna Linkback:
