tall square cairn
True summit of hill is 8m higher and 105m NE at SD 29885 89888
about 8m lower than true summit (rock outcrop) 105m NE at SD 29885 89889; Wainwright's second cairn is 210m N at SD 29810 90027
Wainwright's route goes directly from the tall square cairn to a 2nd cairn at SD 29809 90026, by-passing the true summit. He incorrectly attributes the height of the true summit to his chosen cairn. See Database Notes.
