New Comment: Nothing to see here...
by Colin Murphy  Thu 25 Nov
Followed the short summary advice to the summit on a frosty morning. Unpleasant walk overall - boggy underfoot and lots of goose-stepping over knee-high heather. The summit area has been harvested for peat so it now resembles a WW1 battlefield after an artillery bombardment. Very little to recommend so purely one for the baggers.
