Steep cliffs for short climb
by Fergalh  14 Jul 2014
Park at crossroads at V70365 91059 A very short walk across heather to one of many sheep tracks tracks to summit ( the third top in). Great views of lake Carragh but beware of very steep cliffs on northern side. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1266/comment/17550/

Best Reward to Effort Ratio in the Kingdom?
by ciarraioch  7 Sep 2015
Maybe it was the day that was in it, the glorious 6th of September 2015. In any case, having done upwards of 280 summits at this stage I have never been so rewarded with so little effort. Starting from A as indicated by Fergalh, the entire ridge was less than an hour there and back while taking plenty of time to savour the truly marvelous views of Corca Dhuibhne and Dingle Bay on one side, with Caragh Lake and the Reeks on the other. The ridge was notably dry underfoot also.

If one wanted to induce the reluctant into hill-walking, one could hardly do better than this. The sea, lake and mountain views for which this part of the world is famous, along with cliffs and the sense of being on a mountain in minature.
