Finest views in Kerry?
by Conor74  17 Jul 2014
Yes, that's a brave comment, but think this has to be right up there. Followed ciarraiochs direction to the foot of the mountain, but instead of heading up the gully towards the summit we veered south to take a steeper gully to the dramatic "prow" of the mountain, the top of which is shown in ciarraioch's photo. We entered a wooded gully that starts near V92839 84013 D and emerges near the top at V92867 83942 E. This is a steep section and once you have started up this gully you really are committed to it. The slippery rocks suggest that it usually contains water, we were there after a very dry spell. The views from the top of this area are stunning. From there it took 15 or 20 minutes to get to the summit proper, again fantastic scenery. For the descent we headed north initially but found that way barred by a steep section, so we made our way back around to the east of the mountain. The vegetation is tough going, the lack of grazing means you can be waist high in grass with lots of holes and hollows underfoot. Made it back to the car in 3 hours all told, though again this was after a very dry spell so could make a beeline across wetter lands near the lakes.
