We climbed the western slopes from the deserted village. It is a very steep ascent to the ridge. The 'Lion's Head' is on a rocky outcrop on the ridge. Beware of cliffs on the northern side of the ridge. Spectacular views out to sea in al directions: Belmullet, Croagh Patrick and beyond. Follow ridge to summit (beware of false summit). We descended northwards to the sea avoiding cliffs on the NE slopes and walked to Dugort pier. Lovely walk on a beautiful day. Could be dangerous in mist.
