This relatively unknown peak is the highest point in Ghana. Many sources (even a summit sign) assign this honor to Afadjato, five kilometers to the west, but that peak is clearly over 300m lower. Many climbers access this peak from the Togo side of the border.

A local Ghanaian source indicates that Leklata ("Lion's Head") is the correct name for this summit.
