Well Protected.

Looking at OS57 it looked a short walk over farmland to the summit R2526789531 A from where i parked at R2545788670 B but i was wrong this trig was well protected with forest that left the walk a lot longer than i had first planned. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1306/comment/17622/

Only if you must!

Tried it from the East as an alternative to Sandman's route; very sorry I did! Started at R2579389608 C followed track west. When it ended it left no alternative but enter the trees. Bad experience... if the "Donald" was to climb this hill he would describe it as "a very bad hill". Then he would build a wall around it. He would be right to do that. This hill is only for the list tickers. I climbed a few more hills that day just to wash away the memory of this one! Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1306/comment/18907/
