This is a very rare new addition to the Arderin list and would normally be done in conjunction with Coomcathcun or Coomnahorna and Coomcallee from the south, but if you've already bagged those and missed this one, then it's possible to do it on its own, and with relative ease, from the east. Unfortunately, the day we did it, the rain, wind and cold were unrelentingly cruel! This slowed our ascent considerably (multiple slippages), although overall, the terrain is pretty solid and not too steep. See short summary for access, directions etc. The mountain's aspect from the ridge to the NE is very impressive - a gigantic wall of precipitous rock, with Slievenashaska Lough nestling to the mountain's equally steep south face. The final 500m as you turn south offers multiple, pretty loughs amid a terrain of rock and grass. The summit is marked by a largish pile of rocks and overlooks the lough to the south. Overall, a very worthy Arderin. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1424/comment/18446/
