Thou shalt not pass

There is a rather new and large sign on the gate of the track that runs from the rent a cottage scheme that proclaims "Private Property, Trespassers will be Prosecuted".
I'm afraid Fergalh's route is no more. I didn't have time to try an alternate route this time. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1211/comment/18005/

No sign of trespassers sign

No sign of trespassers sign. Owners of Connemara Country Cottages - from where you begin your trek to An Léim - were happy for me to park in their carpark. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1211/comment/18406/

Short climb
by paddyhillsbagger  13 Mar 2016
Followed Fergalh's route to the top with no warning signs. There was no-one to ask at holiday lets so don't know if access is a problem. Marvelous views over Maam Cross to Maumturks as long as you get over the boggy summit area. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1211/comment/18455/
