Wooded summit with a few good views and large telecoms installations.
Short Summary created by simon3,  8 Sep 2014
This is a mainly wooded summit with an extensive telecoms setup at the top. There are some views. Park at the forest entrance around S6711 4589 A. The shortest way up is to walk back along the road to S 6694 4570 B where there is a steep vehicle track leading directly to the summit.
It is also possible to walk along a forest road to the summit from the forest entrance. Enter the forest and take the first turn left. This route goes round the NW ridge that extends from the summit before reaching the top. Do not attempt to take any tempting short cut through the trees because there is extensive wind damage with blown-over trees sometimes covered in brambles.

Nice views from Cross
by eamonoc  5 Apr 2014
Climbed Friday 4/4/2014, started at S66395 44840 C, take the R703 Thomastown road out of Graiguenamanagh, at Coppenagh gap crossroads take right onto Dungarvan road, there is a 1798 monument at this crossroads. Croghan is clearly visible from here, after large two story house on the right take a right turn and drive uphill with Croghan to the left until a white bungalow with a black surrounding fence is reached, just across the road from this there is a metal gate giving acces to a really green grassy field with a white cross above in a prominent position uphill. Head steeply up to cross, pass it and onto higher ground, A vast array on communication masts are visible to the NE head towards them over some rough ground to summit area. Total time from car to car 25mins, and a distance of approx 1.5km Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1086/comment/15967/
