Nice views for a small mountain
Short Summary created by thomas_g,  15 Dec 2014
Access is possibly easiest from the west from the col between Gowlbeg and Sugarloaf. This can be accessed via the old Beara way from the North, do not attempt from the south are there are serious access issues. The ridge to the east looks like a reasonable route. I don't recommend the route to the north as the terrain is horrible.
Views towards the sea are really nice for a 300m mountain. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1091/comment/15335/

While it's possible to walk on a bearing from where the Beara Way enters the trees near the lakes in the valley to the north, the ground varies from knee high to waist high grass with lots of hidden rocks and hole, so it's only for total masochists.
