Notes & comments

About 8m lower than true summit (rock outcrop) 105m NE at SD 29884 89887; Wainwright's second cairn is 210m N at SD 29810 90025

Wainwright's route goes directly from the tall square cairn to a 2nd cairn at SD298900, by-passing the true summit. He incorrectly attributes the height of the true summit to his chosen cairn. See Database Notes.
