Dull hill requires zero effort.
Short Summary created by Colin Murphy  2 Mar 2015
This is simplicity itself as a badly deteriorating track leads almost to the summit and can be driven with care. From the car you merely trek about 100m west and you've on the top, which is totally nondescript and barely recognisable as a separate top.
