Unremarkable summit area
Short Summary created by Colin Murphy  18 Apr 2022
One approach is to park at the entrance to a disused quarry at C4298627692 starA, where there is just room for a single car. Proceed up the trail for about 100m, which then swings around to the left and begins to diminish, although a very narrow trail continues on an off until you reach C4323128419 starB, where you encounter a fence. Follow this east for 1km, (although it eventually disappears) which will take you to the summit area over rough, boggy, heather-strewn terrain. The top is an unmarked collection of heathery mounds, and locating the actual high point is difficult, although it does appear to be at the western end of the oblong summit area.
