I was on this hill early in my MV days and noted "None of the summits on the ridge are named on the OS - but I've visited the grid references". This comment earned me 1 star, which seemed harsh. I'd also put a full report on the walk on Barrclashcame. Now I'd not totally worked out the use of the various settings on MV (ticking a hill to add to your list but necessarily leaving a comment, for instance) so partly I was just filling in the form. But I think I was also making a point. Is 30 metres enough definition to give an individual summit - shouldn't it be 50 or 100? I went to the summit just for completeness, the spot height (no name) on the map was an obvious turning point.

As for the hill well, as a hill it's dull, but has views to keep you singing the whole way along the ridge. Without the views it'd be a challenge for map and compass and not much else. However it achieves 93% on the overall rating (before I make my contribution) which is ahead of Mweelrea's 91% and suggests some MV contributors should come over and spend some time in the White Mounth. Or maybe work out the difference between view and aesthetic and get their ideas of challenge under control.

I stand by my original comment, this was a visit to a grid reference which has acquired an enormous name. As Milo asked, where did it come from? Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/82/comment/2792/
