Come from the ridge
by thomas_g  3 May 2013
There is fairly good access from the main Barraboy ridge via a grassy gully which was a bit damp at the bottom. It's possible to traverse east to this top from the Beara way, but it looks like horrible going. My estimation of the highest point was a rocky outcrop about 250m from the map position.
