simon3: Track 1139 in area near Dublin/Wicklow (Ireland)
The surveying of Carrigshouk
Length: 4.0km, Creator time taken: 2h 1m, Ascent: 281m,
Descent: 184m

Places: Start at O10269 05266, Carrigshouk, end at Start

This is the track of an investigation to check the height and prominence of Carrigshouk in the Wicklow Mountains. The issue at stake is whether or not the summit has the prominence (height above highest col to a more prominent summit) to be in the Arderins. In this case the col in question leads to Mullaghcleevaun East Top.
As well as this track, accurate measurements were taken with a Trimble surveying GPS and when the results are known we will publicise them. Should the prominence be over 30m then Carrigshouk would be included in the Arderin list.
Later addition. It turned out after post processing the data that the prominence was 31.0 metres to the nearest .1m so Carrigshouk is deemed an Arderin.

Your time to complete will depend on your speed plus break time and your mode of transport. For walkers: Naismith's rule, a rough and often inaccurate estimate, suggests a time of 1h 17m + time stopped for breaks
