Ascent Trip Report

OTM 564m spot height, but 590 contour (SRTM), Gaia registered 596m, Garmin watch 592, but NB GPS seems to read 10-15m high compared with sea level. Summit levelled for Comms installation, boulders serve as naturalish HP. Inside fenced compound, checkpoint just inside, we were granted access to touch the highest boulder in the rock pile which is directly above the checkpoint. Outside the gate is a popular viewpoint for Freetown.
