It is the subject of a chapter of Wainwright's book The Outlying Fells of Lakeland.[1] It reaches 775 feet (236 m) and Wainwright describes the ascent, from Pooley Bridge, as a "simple after-dinner stroll". He lists two other early spellings: Dunmalloght and Dunmallock The hill is wooded and the views from the top limited.[1]
